I saw my gyn this morning for a recheck on some lab work. My GI doctor had me taking Vitamin D supplements earlier this year because I have Crohn's disease and blood work showed that my D level was low. I was already taking other vitamins, including B12. I went to gyn with dry mouth two months ago and her findings showed B12 was too high.
In case this helps anyone, my dry mouth went away completely after I stopped taking all vitamin supplements. My gyn ordered blood work this morning to recheck my Vitamin B12 and D levels and also thyroid, which was in the high end of normal. She told me that even with the Crohn's I can get the vitamins I need by eating properly.
I learned from all this that vitamin supplements may or may not be a good idea and suggest checking with a doctor before taking them. If a doctor says it's okay to take them, be sure they're going to recheck your levels at some point. My GI doctor put me on Vitamin D knowing that he won't see me again before my regular visit next year and did not request a recheck. Not good!
