After a blood test on 11th of August my vit D level came 38nmol/l insufficient. Following this I started taking vitamin D supplement from Seeking health Optimal vitD3 liquid vitD3 2000IU per drop every other day. Then recently talking together with my husband and trying to calculate figures I changed my dosage to 1 drop everyday. I have various symptoms like insomnia, constipation sometimes followed by diarrohea, digestive problems that anything I eat even a sip of water causes pains that comes out from my back as a strong pain through my ribs around bra strap left and right, phisically tired and weak, mentally and emotionally dulled, lost drive and motivation. I am having an thyroid ultrasound due to two nodules on the left and one on the right found by a doctor. I have some questions that I would appreciate greatly if you could help me;
1-I am not sure the dose I am taking is right for me and have not get help from GP either. Tring to rectify the problem I don't want to take too high doses either. Any guidance on right dose would be for me please?
2-Following this how often I should get checked over my vit D levels? Yesterday my GP said they can only do once year which I thought this can be bit more closely observed due to low level start.
3- I feel also because of various symptoms I am having that slowing down my life quite a lot and making me not to function fully and properly and making me so miserable, I should get my vitamin and mineral levels checked too. Especially vitamin A ( I need more and more bright like to see details and read, my finger nails broken,brittle and flaky), vitamin B3 (insomnia,nervousness,mouth soreness, sore tongue, weak muscles etc), vitaminB1(general weakness, tiredness, digestive discomfort, stomach problems, abdominal discomfort, losing muscles, burning pain in the arms and legs, skin rashes, dry skin, forgetfulness, mental confusion, poor memory retention) and vit C. Again my GP said that NHS can't do these test because of cost implications.
Any help, thoughts, guidances please.
Thanking you all very much for your time in reading and in anticipation for your replies.
