Vit D3 has been in the news recently in connection with cll. I asked my GP to add that test to the recent blood tests. Came back with a score of 30 the desired level is 75 and the recommended lower limit is around 50. Since being on d3 suppliments 25ug have felt more positive and had more energy so managed more activity. Better weather has certainly helped too, blue bue bells are comming out in force. Will have a followup blood test in 3 months to see where my level has got to.
I mentioned this to another cll friend and she got here vit d3 level checked - came back with a 7 - she has reported more energy since being on suppliments.
After the weather in past year not surprising that many people would be low on their vitamin d3 - the combination of fatigue reducing activity outdoors and total lack of sunshine when you did. The last few days may have helped with the sunshine increasing our natural vit d3 and spirits too.
Will be feeding back on this to my consultant at the next checkup
So worth getting your level checked and getting your levels up if low and may slow the progression of the cll too.
Nothing to loose - and certainly has helped two of us
