Vitamin D Deficiency

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello Ladies,

Anyone ever told to take Vitamin D, my lab work came back that I was defiencent in it, was told to take Vitamin D 1000 daily?  I don't know what my level was, but I am looking it up on the internet and see there is D3 and D2?  Looks as though the D3 is best?  Anyone?  Jay, if you are reading this would love to hear from you as you have been giving great advice on supplements.

Thank you. Hope everyone is doing well today  <3  loretta>

    Yes I was borderline Vit D was told most people are but are unaware. I have been taking 1000 a day but a surgeon friend has said to take 4000. Apparently you can take up to 10,000 per day.

      Also, always be guided by your doctor as he knows your true results and the level of your deficiency, he will no doubt recheck your levels after a while and re evaluate .. ( take just what he suggests )

      Hi Jay a quick question if you don't mind :-) I was told to be careful if I took calcium as it can cause calcium blockages in your arteries thus causing heart disease so sort of put me off taking them? Any advice from you would be very much appreciated. It's an absolute hear so many different things and I get so confused :-( I take A-Z multivitamins, Vit D, Vit B complex, Evening primrose oil and Cod Liver oil

      Thanks so much Jay. I've not had HRT and have to say the supplements I take are just recommended by friends or health shop (apart from Vit D) ive asked doctors but the only thing they suggested was a menopause supplement! I've heard magnesium is supposed to be beneficial. Just for surgeon friend said when they operate they always know whose been on HRT as their bones are so much stronger than someone who hasn't! It's all swings and roundabouts I guess and Id really like to stay natural if I can x

      Hi tracky

      bones can still get goodness and benefits from the right supplements for bone health.

      I didnt want HRT .. It only postpones menopause then when you stop it all starts again at a later age, i sooner deal with that now ..

      I am too high risk anyway.. Family history and previous endometriosis and cysts. All gone now in post menopause and not being fed by hormone replacement.

      I just wanted nature to do whats intended personally and accepted the long haul and come out other side and only age 50 ..

      Acceptance is the key, and positivity.

      Its all personal choice for each woman, what ever best for each lady.

      You will find your own path and get your own inner strength

      Have a lovely day

      Jay x
