Vitamin d joint health

Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin d joint health


Avatar n tn I take 2000 mg of vitamin D, and it causes no pain. I feel much better when I take it. I used to be deficient. I would not stop the vitamin D. Perhaps you need other vitamins and minerals in addition, but the vitamin D shouldn't cause problems. Try calcium tablets and glutamate powder at night for the hip discomfort. Try magnesium in the morning at 500 IU.

Avatar f tn I took blood test today due to severe muscle and joint pain.. My vitamin D level is 11.5.Can someone suggest is this too low or normal level..
Avatar n tn Have you had your vitamin levels checked? Sometimes if you have a low D count or a low B12 you can have joint pain. Next time you see your doc ask him/her to do a complete CBC panel and check all of your vitamin levels. I'm not a doctor but I did and still do take care of an elderly parent so I try to keep up with the current info on things.
Avatar f tn 000 lux for 30 mintues a day can and does increase the brains Serotoinin level and vitamin D, which will help improve sleep quailty, depression, not only in those who suffer from S.A.D (sessional affective disorder) but all kinds of depression... apart from Bipolar as the light increases energy levels and can cause a manic episode in manic depresives. The light needs to penetrate the back of the eye, which where it converts into Serotonin.

Avatar f tn A correct intake of vitamin D, along with calcium is very important in protecting the health of our bones. Low vitamin D may lead to early progression of the disease. You need to see a specialist. Your doctor will advise you to start vitamin D supplements. In fibromyalgia medicines should always be used along with exercise and behavior therapy. Medications like Duloxetione, pregabalin and Milnacipram have been approved for treating fibromyalgia. See a psychologist for conselling.
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm 18 and was diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency in Feburary earlier this year with a level of 15nmol and was only put on 800iu a day. However my symptoms got very bad by July so I was put on a weekly tablet of 20,000iu d3 a week and after just 4 weeks my levels had risen up to 110nmol so I carried on taking the weekly dose for 4 more weeks but my doctor never repeated my blood test at the end of it.
Avatar f tn What positive results did you see? Arthritis is the last thing I need! I take calcium, vitamin D, fish oil, flaxseed oil, vitamin C, and magnesium, I also have osteoporosis and I am 44! I am hoping to see an improvement in my bone scan this summer. Being hyper with Grave's surely didn't help.
913053 tn?1245952849 I found out that my vitamin D was extremely low, and take 100,000 units once a week now..with a daily 2400 calcium/vitamin D. It is a bit better, but I'm thinking it is/can be a combination of vitamin D and hypo..or either or. Dontcha just ~love~ this race?!?! *sigh* I hope you feel better.
171867 tn?1271044148 I have hasimotos can you please tell me what the optimun levels for our vitamin D levels should be. The range is 30-100 and mine is 38 I suffer from hypo symptooms and cant seem to raise my T3 levels as they continue to remain at the very low range at 2.6 with 2.5 being the low end. I have alot of joint pain but if I raise my med levels I get breathlessness, which I cant tolerate, so any suggestions. My vitamin B levels were all good. Thank you for any advice!
Avatar f tn In the report issued today, the committee reviewed studies on the metabolism and physiology of calcium and vitamin D and their influence on health. Dietary reference intakes were determined using the estimated average requirement (EAR; the level at which 50% of the population's needs are met), recommended dietary allowance (level at which 95% of the population's needs are met), tolerable upper intake level, and adequate intake level.
Avatar f tn It was two years before my vitamin D levels were borderline healthy. The reason is I had vitamin D resistance from severe magnesium deficiency (one of my many undiagnosed conditions). Magnesium is the most important co factor for vitamin D absorption.
Avatar f tn What was your vitamin D level? If your low on it then it can cause all kinds of problems. The joint and muscle pains are the main ones from what I've read. I wish I could help you with the menstrual part of it but I had a hysterectomy many years ago. I wonder too just like you about being on such a high dose of vitamin D. Did you have the stomach pain before or after they put you on vitamin D? It does a number on my stomach, making me feel nauseous.
Avatar f tn One study found 93% with unexplained bone and muscle pain were deficient in vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency also lists other symptoms including headaches, fatigue, insomnia and is a cause of elevated AST. Optimal range is 80ng/ml or 200nmol/L depending on what your lab measures in. In Gilbert's syndrome, higher doses of vitamin D and oils like flaxseed or omega 3 cause sweating and liver pain with Gilbert's syndrome as as the liver has a hard time processing it.
Avatar m tn Hi. I'm dealing with low vitamin D myself after recently discovering it is low. I've been supplementing for quite a while before learning that I'm low. Going to pick up portabello & shiitake mushrooms until my visit with GP. If I learn anything of value I'll share it here. It is said not to shower for 24 hours after sun exposure for full absorption of Vit D.
Avatar f tn From my research, and the ailments, it appears my problem has been a continual low or none Vitamin D all along. Tests come back with no Vitamin D or very little. I ran out in the sun, with no sunscreen and now I garden, so Vitamin D should not be an issue, but it is. When I don't have enough Vitamin D, I get mouth sores (not herpes). I take Vitamin D, for two days they are gone, and then come back, until I take my next round of D once a week.
Avatar f tn Symptoms of hypothyroidism are in the hundreds but includes fatigue (also a vitamin D deficiency symptom), dry skin, joint pain (also a vitamin D deficiency symptom), tinnitus, fullness in the ears, vertigo, weight gain. Tests for thyroid disease include TSH, free T4, free T3, thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOAb) and thyroglobulin antibodies (TgAb).
Avatar f tn Vitamin D - is not a vitamin... I wish the never used it and called it a VitD D is a hormone that controls the seratonin and other endorphine levels. If that is off many things are off. A regular Hypo should ahve 2000-4000ius daily.
Avatar f tn I was also diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency. I have been taking 50,000 IU of Vitamin D once a week for the past 3 months. I am scheduled to get retested next week. The main symptom that I went into the doctor for was an unexplained pain in my lower back and legs. I am 41 years old but felt like a 90 year old, could hardly walk up the stairs or get out of a chair. After 3 months the pain is still there but nothing like what it was before starting the large dose of vit D.
874521 tn?1424116797 My opinion on this product is that it's not even worth trying and there are better ways to treat such condition with better quality products if you don't care about buying separate products. Calcium and Vitamin D is good, phosphorus magnesium too for joint pain. Lipoic acid and Acetyl-L-Carnitine and B vitamins are good for nerve pain. Sierrasil is trying to make money out of cheap chemical elements widely available that you can buy at your local food supplements store.
