Vitamin D and Bone Pain
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen

Hi April,

Yes, your Bone Pain could (and likely IS) caused by Vitamin D Deficiency. There is much research showing that bone pain is very much relieved by treating Vitamin D Deficiency.

HOWEVER, even very MILD Vitamin D Deficiency can cause aches and pains, so it is important that you get your Vitamin D Level treated AGGRESSIVELY in order to get your level to between 50 and 80 ng/ml.

The lab report and probably your doctor, will state that a normal level is 30 ng/ml, but most researchers disagree and believe that Vitamin D Levels between 50 to 80 are considered 'Optimal' and could prevent much disease in the world.

But you stated that your doctor has you taking 5,000 IU's twice a week. Please RECHECK THE DOSE and let me know if that is correct. I'm thinking that he might have you on 50,000 IU's twice per week.

50,000 IU's twice per week would be an adequate and acceptable dose to increase your Vitamin D Levels. But 5000 IU's twice a week is patently not enough to do anything at all! That is a dose that researchers recommend that an average sized person should be taking PER DAY just to MAINTAIN their levels!!

As for your Fatigue, I'll answer on the next comment down.

Vitamin D and Fatigue
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen

OK, so now on to the fatigue.

Correcting your Vitamin D Deficiency may or may not resolve your fatigue, but in some studies of diseases like Lupus and Fibromyalgia where there is a significant level of fatigue- treatment of Vitamin D Deficiency improved fatigue.

And certainly, having pain contributes to fatigue- so it's logical that getting rid of the pain can help to decrease fatigue.

But there may be many reasons for your fatigue that your doctor may have missed.

One reason for fatigue that is VERY common despite rarely being diagnosed is Vitamin B 12 deficiency. In fact, one study showed that 25% of the population has undiagnosed Vitamin B 12 Deficiency!

Luckily, Vitamin B 12 deficiency is EASILY diagnosed and fixed at the same time.

Simply try taking about 1000 micrograms (shown as mcg on most packages) in an UNDER THE TONGUE (sublingual) method, like in Beyond B12 for about a month.

If you feel better, it's likely that you are B 12 deficient and continue using the spray every day. If you DON'T feel better, then discontinue using the spray. That is a WAY cheaper and easier remedy for testing and treating Vitamin D Deficiency than getting blood tests that are usually inaccurate anyway!
