Has anyone else been diagnosed with Vit D deficiency My PCP ran blood work a...
my doc doesn't even look. I am scheduled to have it looked at by my endocrinologist with my next blood work though
I do too. I blame everything on the prednisone
They automatically put me on it because of the side effects of the drugs. My levels are now normal to high. It is good that they checked.
Vit D deficiency is in the news a lot these days - seems everyone's deficient. I hope it's resolved for you quickly Sue.
Yes Cyndi, that's why I was wondering if it was for real or just the "flavor of the day". I got further results though ... I wanted specifics! A normal range is 32 - 100 and mine is 17, so I guess I really do need the supplements.
I'd say you need some. I know as we get older we get depleted and then add in our meds and our general condition and I would say we are more at risk. I take a daily just to be on the safe side.
Yes, I've been Chronic Vit D deficient since (and prob before) diagnosis. I've noticed this a lot with other Weggie's on the list serve I belong to...I was told people with Auto Immune issues suffer from Vit D deficiency quite commonly.
my doctor put me on 1000 IU because up here in Oregon we don't get the sun like other states :( it rains all the darn time. I was a little low to begin with, but he wanted me to start now so I didn't get down any farther.
