I am 5ft tall and under 120lbs. I try to walk 2 miles a day depending on how I feel and the weather. I have had some concerning symptoms lately.
Avatar m tn “It appears to be a relation between serum levels of 25(OH)D and symptoms of depression. Supplementation with high doses of vitamin D seems to ameliorate these symptoms indicating a possible causal relationship.” Researchers found that seniors with depression had vitamin D levels that were 14 percent lower than those who were not depressed. Those with vitamin D levels below 20 ng/ml had an 85 percent increased risk of depression, compared to those with levels above 30 ng/ml.

1222076 tn?1423027749 I went to my new doctor today. Over my stomach symptoms and heart murmur and palpations. My doctor is nice but yet again like the rest she tells me the most they can do is give me acid reducers which don't really help me much. They tell me I produce to much acid but my question is whats causing it? Maybe if they spent some time trying to figure out what causes it then I could feel better. Most people don't have that problem so my symptoms are deffinatly not normal.

Avatar m tn I'm a big fan of vitamin D. Obviously, everyone should be taking a daily dose of vitamin D. Where we see an inexpensive way for all people to maintain their health, Big Pharma sees only dollar signs. At the end of last month, biopharmaceutical company Rockwell Medical announced that it had scored an Abbreviated New Drug Application for injectable vitamin D (dubbed Calcitriol) for people with end-stage renal disease who are undergoing hemodialysis.

203342 tn?1328737207 I searched the forums and just wasn't sure where this one would fit so figured I'd throw it out in a journal and see if anyone is knowledgable in this area. I had some blood work done last week because my eye doctor wanted me to. I had gone to him with an inflamation in my eye and since it was the third time it had happened I went in to be seen and he diagnosed it as Episcleritis.
Avatar f tn I've been adding an extra 400 IU of Vitamin D to my daily vitamin regimen for the past week, to see if it helps alleviate some of my body aches and joint/bone pain. The test is mowing the yard with a small, electric push mower. It usually take me about an hour to mow. Halfway thru my right hip would start to hurt, followed by the left hip and both knees. Tonite was better, with only minimal hip pain (knees didn't hurt at all).
Avatar f tn I vividly remember, it was on the 4th of August, that I fainted and ever since everything feels weird.It is kinda hard to describe(foggy, spaced out, slightly different vision).I've undergone numerous tests all of which came out normal, except vitamin d3 and b12 which are (12.6 and 189 ). I've started taking supplements 5 weeks ago( 4000IU d3 and 2000 mcg b12). I've even taken 5 b12 injections. I see absolutely no improvement.
