Regarding Itchiness and Vitamin D
I have been taking over the counter Vitamin D3 and calcium citrate supplements for several months per the instruction of my endocrinologist. The pills I am taking have no fillers or additives or any any other ingredients. They are very high quality. I continue to have daily itching.
I also have an allergy to wool. I could never wear it when it touches my skin I get all itchy and have trouble breathing.
I believe that, except for cod liver oil, vitamin d supplements are made out of lanolin, which is an ingredient in wool.
I have chosen to continue with the supplements and tolerate the side effects.
I am having another blood draw soon to check my D and PTH, which were 23 and 90 on 5/30/12.
I am wondering if others have the reaction to Vitamin D because of a lanolin allergy.
