I need to order some more vitamin d3. In the summer with 1,000 IU and making sure I got sun exposure every day if possble sunshine I got my levels up to a good level (from 45 nmol/L to 111 nmol/L where Satisfactory range is 75-250 nmol/L) but I am assuming that the lack of sun since September means my levels are dropping even with 1,000IU. Is it a good idea to increase my intake?
This is my first winter since being told I was deficient in vitamin D so I am new to this. I have also read that you take Vitamin K2 with higher levels of vit D3. Elsewhere I have also read that the soft gel version is better than tablets.
I also have B12 injections every 3 months, levothyroxine plus a diagnosis of ME which seems to be getting worse and I am getting more and more tired with less and less activity even compared to a year ago. So I am anxious to try to do the best I can to keep my body going.
Should I increase my vit D3 and should I add vitamin K2 as I have seen warnings about taking higher levels of vitamin D can cause problems with bones and calcium and I have enough problems already. There seems to be so many different ones available that I am now very confused so advice on what to buy would be appreciated. If the site rules mean you can't post names of brands etc can you please PM me.
Thanks for reading this rather long post but my head is going round and round and my thinking isn't very clear.
