So, say your vitamin D tested at 8 nmol/l (all other bloods within range) and that your doctor had told you that this undoubtedly played a role in your recent calcaneus fracture. You're an active man in his 30s with a good diet, yet you've been feeling exhausted, weak, spaced out and dizzy, sometimes shaky and losing co-ordination to the point you struggle to function and, before your fracture, had to resign from a job that required work at height. Somehow you don't have muscle or bone pain though.
You've been prescribed large doses of D3 followed by maintenance doses and calcium plus multivitamins and minerals for cofactors.
You've already got anxiety problems, you've been frustrated for perhaps three years over feeling so rough, and now you're being treated for depression. You've been given a glimpse of hope that correcting your deficiency might correct your physical ailments.
How long do you expect to hang on for improvements given a level as low as 8 nmol/l? And how will these improvements become apparent?
I hope someone can give me a clear indication, thanks guys x
