Months ago, after being newly diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and prescribed Levothyroxine, I'd been reading up on Stop The Thyroid Madness website that Vitamin D3 might help my (what I thought might be,) Fibromyalgia type pains. (I hadn't heard of Thyroid UK back then.)
At my next Doctor's appointment I was told along with the usual blood test Doc wanted to get me checked for Vit D.
I asked Doc if she meant Vitamin D3 (as mentioned on STTM website,) but Doc replied that Vitamin D3 was American.
I was prescribed Colecalciferol 1,000iu of Vitamin D and recently decided to 'Google' it on several websites and found oddly that it came up classed as a Vitamin D3. ??? Rather strange ???
