About a month ago I went to doctor and talked about my symptomps (hairloss, dry skin, headache sometimes). He suggested me to test my vit D levels and it was 17, so it means I'm deficiency. He told me to take vit D 5000 IU daily and test again 3 months later. I have been taking vit D for 2 weeks.
I'm still not sure about the result, but here is the effects I got:
- I feel I got deep sleep and it's so nice to have that. I don't know if this is the effect of I'm reducing my steroids (I was taking steroids before), or this is because of vitamin D. But I think this is because of the vit D
- I don't really experience headache anymore, and this is a good thing.
- I still have hairloss which I feel bad about it.
I searched on the internet that some people could fix their hairloss with vit D. But I don't know how long it takes. Also, I make conclusion about my hairloss condition.
It was triggered by stress 2 years ago. Maybe for normal people they will experience it for 3-4 months but since I have SLE so it is harder for me to fix it. I'm also low in Hb so I guess my hairloss condition is because of low HB and vitamin D.
