At a recent appointment with the practice nurse for a blood test, I asked if she could find the result of my Vitamin d level in my records. She could not find any record of it and so suggested we just add it to the blood test request on that day. When the results came back , GP phoned to say my Vitamin D level is low at 28. She mentioned it should be between 70 and 100 and offered to prescribe an additional supplement. I have collected the prescription today which is for :
Cholecalciferol 400 unit capsules
One od for 2 months then repeat blood test
I currently have Natecal D3 which contains 600mg calcium / 400i.u.cholecalciferol taking one twice a day.
Will this combination of Natecal and new prescription be sufficient to reduce the deficiency? What do other people take? I thought I had read about levels of 1 and 2000.
Also when reading about Vitamin D online I noticed that a symptom of Vitamin D deficiency is sweating. I do not have this to any great extent, but it has been mentioned recently as a troublesome symptom for many of us. Just a thought...........
