I had bloods done privately a couple of weeks ago and the result of the vitamin D test came back as 17nmol/l (<30 indicates deficiency). 'Holy moley!' I cried, 'I must get down the doctor's straight away and start treatment'. Duty GP, I thought unreasonably at the time, grudgingly accepted test result and prescribed Vit D3 1000u but insisted on me being tested again. This was 8 days after the original test.
New test results are 103nmol/l. How can that be possible, apart from lab error? I've not gone out in the sun more and didn't start the tablets until after the retest.
So now my doctor thinks I'm more nuts than she already did (although she is a fabulous GP and I wouldn't be alive without her).
Has anybody else had a similar experience?
