Vitamin d3 testing

Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin d3 testing


Avatar f tn There are various possible scenarios including a genetic inability to process the vitamin. If you are taking vitamin D, make sure you are taking D3. Get plenty of sunlight. As to the muscle pain, that may or may not be related to the D3. My guess it involves a calcium-channel issue. That is most likely. There are all sorts of other possible causes. A glass of milk often helps, but apparently you are drinking plenty of milk. The information on the "pain" is insufficient.
Avatar m tn My Vitamin D3 is 7.85 ng/ml ( which is very low ). As we don't have any expert Dr. here. Kindly suggest me: - May i take D3 Injections or - Tablets ? I have Rock - D 300 dietary supplement which contains Elementry calcium 1200 mg, Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) 400 IU. Other Ingredients: Soyabean Oil, Glycerin,Gelatin, Soy Lecithin, Titanium Dioxide Color. If i go to tablets is it fine ? or injections ?
Avatar n tn I tested my vitamin D level. What do my results mean? I just picked the last two levels since the article is very long.... "My level is between 100-150 ng/ml Although these levels aren’t toxic and aren’t usually harmful, they are thought to be too high. There are no known benefits to having a vitamin D level over 100 ng/ml.
398059 tn?1447945633 Back when I first found out I had MS, I started taking Vitamin D3 because I read that is was the best form of the vitamin to be taking because it best mimiced the effect of the sun. Does anyone here happen to know if this really an issue.

Avatar m tn Hi everyone I have got some vitamin D3 in a liquid form I'm just trying to workout what is the ideal amount to take for someone with chronic hep b its says for evey 0.5ml there is62.5 ug (its not actually a "u" looks like a "y" the wrong way around. I currently take Magnesium and calcium aswell. No probs with that but I have bought some liquid zinc can anyone give me a good idea how much is good for someone with hep B.
Avatar m tn Three months ago I started daily regiment of vitamin D3 (8000 IU). The reason for that was a small spike in Hep B DNA value and recommendation of this forum. Heb B DNA values / ALT / AST October 2015 - DNA 40 IU/mL, ALT - 16, AST - 17 January 2016 - DNA 150 IU/mL, ALT - 17, AST - 21 After that started vitamin D3 (8000 IU / daily) / sorry no baseline results April 2016 - DNA 90 IU/mL, ALT - 17, AST - 13 VitD3 - 74.
Avatar m tn Keep taking vitamin D3 until you are cleared of the bacteria. You can take vitamin D3 permanently however.
Avatar m tn Insofar as taking vitamin D3 supplements, my feeling is that you should have an inexpensive D3 level test performed before taking supplements. A so-called "normal" level is 30 on the test. 3000 IU per day is not excessively high. Patients are often given 50,000 IU in a once weekly supplement. Excess vitamin D3 can cause alterations in blood calcium, although that would be unlikely at the dose you have recommended. My guess is that the tiredness is related to the hepatitis.
1532707 tn?1312155924 I do take it. When my attack began (end of May this year), my D level was pretty low: 25. The nurse practitioner I saw at the time had me take 50,000 IU weekly for three months. After that, my neuro said to take 2,000 IU daily. Not that we should consider her word the gospel truth, trust me. But I think most doctors recommend 1,000-2,000 IU daily.
15848200 tn?1456634289 Vitamin D2 causes the amyloid protein in your brain to clump together making it difficult to remove this build up of amyloid. This leads to loss of cognitive function and sets up the conditions for Alzheimer's disease progression. Vitamin D3 helps clear amyloid from the brain which aids in improving cognitive function. Keeping 25(OH)D3 levels at or above 50ng/ml [US] or 125nmol/l [UK] is an important factor in reversing cognitive decline.
Avatar m tn Goldcal D3 contains Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3) which is a fat soluble vitamin, that helps the body to absorb calcium and phosphorous found in food and supplements. Although there are some tests that show a relationship between vit D and cholesterol, it is not probable that the intake of one capsue affected the outcome of your cholesterol levels the next day. Lab results are very reliable, so you can assume that you indeed have high cholesterol levels.
Avatar n tn s the best dose of Vitamin D3 to be used with Levothyroxine? What are the normal levels of vitamin D?
Avatar f tn Funny you should say that, my doctor JUST recommended vitamin D3 for me! The supplement world is full of opinions and a lot of misleading literature. There are no true experts because it is a highly unregulated industry. Although, doctors do not get kick backs from pharmaceutical companies. That part is untrue. From what I have read, those who have mild, moderate to severe reactions unless they have a pre existing risk factor is pretty random as to who will have what. Not had covid yet.
Avatar n tn But, after testing low in vitamin D, and subsequently supplementing with D, my TSH increased and I began having symptoms of hypothyroidism. I might add that the vitamins were taken at opposite times of the day from the thyroid meds. My Synthroid was raised to 75 mcg and 10 mcg of Cytomel to accommodate the increasing TSH. However, I got symptoms of overstimulation. I stopped the vitamins and became somewhat hyperthyroid on the increased dose. I am now back on 62.
Avatar f tn I tried to take vit d3 in a liquid form (dropper) 1,000 mg a day due to d3 deficiency two different times. Both trial periods, I felt weak, dizzy with heart palpatations. Have u ever heard of this reaction to d3?
Avatar n tn Severe fatigue, recurring infections. Low body temperature 95 - 97, vitamin d lab result = 19 Low, Free T3 2.3 Low, always cold, severe brain fog and lack of motivation to even bathe, Cholesterol 311, MCV 98 High, Anion Gap 5.9 High,, ultrasensitive TSH = point 97 (.97), Free T4 point 79(.79), B12=334, Monocytes low, eosinophils low, ANA negative, Rheumatoid negative, all other CBC and chem profiles are normal... including ferritin 33.4, folic acid 12.77 and iron binding cap 316.3.
Avatar f tn Vitamin D has a number of cofactors and the most important are magnesium, vitamin K, zinc, boron and vitamin A. The Vitamin D council state optimal vitamin D [25(OH)D] levels should be between 50–80 ng/ml (125–200 nmol/L).
233622 tn?1279334905 Yes, vitamin D3 levels are very important in MS. First, the role of D3 is to act like a hormone that modulates the immune system. Back in 1997, it was found that when mice were given D3, they did not develop the mouse model of MS. As studies have progressed, the evidence strongly points to the role of D3 in preventing MS. That seems to be the link in the statistics that show that there is less MS as you get closer to the equator.

Avatar f tn Tingly feet, legs and hands, unbalanced and lightheaded and have passed out a few times. Now, with my new bloodwork my Vitamin K is elevated at 1453. I have no idea what this means. Am I not processing vitamins correctly in my body because of the MTHFR gene mutation. My doctors don't seem to have an answer for me.
Avatar f tn The Vitamin D Council actually recommends that healthy adults take 5,000 iu vitamin D3 everyday. Therefore, since you are severely deficient, like I was and must stay on guard so I won't be again, you can safely take the minimum of 5,000 iu everyday and then some. Seriously, everyone on this forum would benefit by signing up for the newsletters from this website.
Avatar f tn My doctor prescribed me these vitamin d3 wafers that I'm suppose to take weekly since my vitamin d is a little on the low side and he says vit d deficiency can cause several birth defects. So I've been taking Replesta vit d3 for 3 weeks now its one chewable tablet per week & just now I just read on the indications and use sheet "NOT TO BE USED BY PREGNANT WOMEN". Says it can cause heart defects in fetuses amongst other things. I dont know how to feel right now.
