Interesting Question...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

That's really an interesting question. If you have your older vitamin d level when you were first diagnosed, I'd be better able to answer that question.

But until I see the numbers, it's impossible to comment because I NEVER EVER trust it when doctors tell me that a vitamin d level is normal. If you take a look at my page on Vitamin D Levels, you'll see that most researchers recommend an 'optimal' vitamin d level of between about 50 to 80 ng/ml- and anything lower than this can contribute to widespread pain.

Yet, some laboratories report the 'normal range' of vitamin d as low as 20 ng/ml- and I have had clients with vitamin d levels as low as 18 ng/ml be told that their level was 'normal' by their doctor. So, I insist on having my clients actually look at their numbers to make sure that it is between 50 to 80 ng/ml.

So, if you can get your hands on those results, that would be helpful.

Low Vitamin D & fibro
by: Dianne

I always have low vitamin D levels and have to use supplements. I have been given the high prescription doses several times and it comes up some, but always drops back down. My Rheumatologist (I have osteoporosis and fibro, I don't have arthritis) has now put me on 4,000 Units daily for maintenance. I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian, however, so I do not eat fish. I would not have a problem really with the D3 coming from wool since I am not vegan except that I have an allergy to wool. Therefore, I use the vegan Vitamin D. I do wish there were another option.
I have always claimed fibro was a symptom of another problem since I was diagnosed with it, and said that I think the doctors just haven't been able to find out what it is. It was interesting to read what you had to say about that. I am also interested in the low magnesium connection and am going to try magnesium supplementation. I also have terrible ringing in the head that NEVER stops...
