Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello everyone and good evening from SoCal I just got back from my doctor and we went over lab work results. Well needless to say my triglycerides are a bit High in the low 200's , but would definitely worried me was a low level of vitamin D it was at 15 and of course you already know I got anxious about reading those numbers. Given that I rarely go out because of anxiety and then agoraphobia maybe that's why the number is low due to minimal sun exposure . Should I really be worrying too much about the vitamin D #'s? I got supplements to take daily of course so that should take care of that in a few months. I guess I just worry too much and let my thoughts take control of my life. Thank you all for hearing me out ,can't wait for some responses thanks in advanced

I know how you feel I'm like you it took me forever to be able to have blood drawn from dr i feared the results. I didn't want to freak over numbers or get told something is abnormal.b it you will be fine once you start taking the vitamin D

    I would be getting straight onto that, high trigylcerides, that's as bad as high cholesterol. start at looking at your diet if it's not a healthy one and exercises even if you can't get out . Vitamin D wouldn't worry to much about that as supplements are available, there would be millions + with this deficiency, if you can't bear to be outside in the sun sit next to a window with the most sun blazing through it
