A test after a month of Vit d???

I have had Pro d3 10.000 given to me for a month via GP I had already bought some from solgar... However when I went to repeat these I have been asked to have another blood test.. I understand that this at first look might seem like a caring GP but as I'm only getting b12 shots 1 every 2 weeks for 4 then over to 3 monthly, caring and knowledge don't shout out at me re any of this... So I am wondering why after a month of Vit d which I had to learn here I needed to take with k2 are they wanting a blood test? I'm not going to suddenly be ok am I? I'm totally perplexed and worried... Is it to dismiss the BH test above? Thanks Jo 😊 x

I'm assuming they want to test your Vitamin D level to make sure that it has responded to the treatment - it was very low.

After just 1 month ? I have just had my bone scan and they stated it was thankfully normal but 15 vit d range was bad as they start treating people if it's at 50 in the Osteoporosis clinic... I could understand a blood test after 3 months for a new reading on vit d but not a month... This I'm more worried is to dispute my private test, or lack of knowledge, rather than a caring over the top GP.. As they are not giving me standard loading doses on b12 😊

I don't think that they'll be assuming it will be normal after 1 month - but testing should ensure that it is going in the right direction. If not, they may need to do other tests to work out why.

Hi... a month does seem a short time but it is a good thing to be tested regularly for Vit.D it is one of the ones that you can overdose on and can do damage to the kidneys. so don t worry about it just go along and have the test.
