Reversing Vitamin D deficiency on my own
(Oxford, WI USA)
I am 50 year old woman with a history of rheumatoid arthritis, peptic ulcer and fibromyalgia.
I saw a doctor last week and my vitamin D level was 14.
I feel terrible.
She put me on 5000 IU of D3 once a day. She did not have me make a follow up appointment. I have no insurance, so each and every office call is a major strain on my budget.
If I call her and ask her to order blood checks (without having to see her) every few months, can I increase the dosage myself? I really feel like I'm dying of something here.
