Why You have all of these problems...

Hi Imagine,

So, you are in the same position as SO many people who come to me who want to know Why is my Vitamin D Level so low?

Well, Imagine, first of all, you are a beautiful African-American woman. And unfortunately, the darker your skin, the less vitamin D that you can get from the sun. So, even if you DO go out into the sun, you'll need to spend up to 20 times longer in the sun to get Vitamin D than someone with very pale skin.

And with Vitamin D Deficiency being partly responsible for Diabetes and High Blood Pressure, this fact COULD, in part, explain the epidemic of these diseases in African-Americans.

So, that is one reason why its so low, the other reason is that you, like most of the western world, BELIEVES that they are somehow getting Vitamin D in sufficient quantities. But if you look at the Vitamin D Requirements page, you'll see that most adults need about 3800 to 5000 IU's per day. And most people don't even come CLOSE to getting that much unless they sunbathe regularly.

Your DVT's Could Also Be Related to Vitamin D Deficiency as well as your Chronic Pain.

But whether these problems go away, you'll never know until you get your Vitamin D Levels into the Optimal Range. Also, your doctor has done you ANOTHER disservice by giving you ...

Prescription Vitamin D when researchers say that you should be taking Vitamin D3 Supplements instead.

Then there is the Lupus. Why do you have it? Doctors never address that either, but there has got to be a REASON, it doesn't just come out of thin air. And the biggest reason for most autoimmune diseases is Increased Intestinal Permeability, yet doctors don't even BELIEVE that it exists- despite TONS of research on the subject!

So, how are you supposed to be diagnosed with ANYTHING when doctors don't believe in any of the things that are likely wrong with you. They barely even believe in Vitamin D Deficiency- as you have found out.

So, this is only a start of my thoughts on the subject that you brought up, but much more about what might be wrong with you is on This Page About Fibromyalgia. Just pretend that it says 'lupus' instead of fibromyalgia- because it's all essentially the same underlying problems anyway.

OK. Enough for you to digest.

I just learned today from the physician's assistant that I see that my vitamin D level is 6.5. I complained about a lot of joint pain so she ordered several blood tests. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis almost 3 years ago and now I'm seeing a lot of information linking the two.

Why was I never tested by my neurologist? How likely am I to develop cancer or heart disease at this level?

My doctor has ordered 50,000 i.u.s weekly of vitamin D. My other problems include thinning hair, psoriasis, and spasms which I just learned could be related to the vitamin D deficiency.

Why You Weren't Tested...

I wish that I could tell you why you weren't tested for vitamin d deficiency before- but the connection between MS and Vitamin D has been known for many years.

And despite the strengthening evidence, doctors are STILL not checking their MS patients- despite the findings of levels as low as 6 like yours. It seems like serious negligence to me.

And even though you have been diagnosed now, your doctor is STILL not treating your vitamin d deficiency appropriately.

First of all, giving you Prescription Vitamin D is simply NOT recommended- as I discuss on that page.

Please read why Vitamin D3 Supplements are the MUCH better choice.

Also, the dose that your doctor is giving you is really ridiculously low. Your level is WAY below normal, and some doctors would opt to give you twice or even 3 times that dosage for the first month or two in order to get your levels up more quickly.

I'll bet that your doctors have never checked you for vitamin b12 deficiency either, have they? But MS is often not only just a symptom of vitamin d deficiency, but a Vitamin B12 Deficiency Symptom as well.

And Gluten Sensitivity often plays a role too.

Uggghh! What a conundrum. So, get your vitamin d levels up to 'Optimal' levels and let me know if you have any questions.
