Vitamin D and K2

Hi can anyone please advise about taking K2 with Vitamin d, my blood calcium is raised and I have started a course of vitamins and mineral supplements recommended and supplied By Dr Sarah Myehill including Vitamin D3 . Clutter in a previous reply you suggested not supplementing until I see Endo next week so to clarify does that mean none for now?

    "Clutter in a previous reply you suggested not supplementing until I see Endo next week so to clarify does that mean none for now?"

    That's how I would interpret Clutter's advice.

    You should discuss your raised calcium level with your GP (and or Endo).

    When taking D3, there are important co-factors needed, see

    D3 aids the absorption of calcium from food. K2-MK7 directs it to bones and teeth and away from arteries and soft tissues. D3 and K2 are fat soluble so should be taken with the fattiest meal of the day, D3 four hours away from thyroid meds.

    Magnesium comes in different forms, see

    Decide which would suit you best and as it's calming it's best taken in the evening, four hours away from thyroid meds.

  • Sarahpk,

    Vitamin D raises calcium so you shouldn't supplement vitD while calcium is high.

    Was Dr.Myhill aware you have high calcium when she recommended you supplement D3?

  • Hi clutter all self medicating based on her book and recommendations! I am so sick of unhelpful Drs I wanted to solve this my self but think my situation is too complex! See above complications! has the gluten free etc worked for u! I have chronic fatigue very bad which is why I turned to her but as you say that may be because of my hyper t4 t3 !! I am not taking levo for three days as u suggested will stop supplements with Vitamin D and wld like to stop the dairy/ glutten free if it is no help in thy CA cases!! But will persevere if helps 😜😩👍

  • Sarahpk,

    By the time I learned that g-f might improve Hashi symptoms my thyroid had already been removed and Hashimoto's burned out so I've never been g-f, dairy free or sugar free. I wasn't aware there was any benefit to thyCa patients giving up gluten, dairy or sugar.

  • I am just now realising this after buying in the stuff! This us where the pervailung advice is not so much a fit for us!! We need to write our own book of what works for us 👍

  • Sarahpk,

    Thyroidless patients really don't have any special requirements over and above other hypothyroid patients. We all need sufficient thyroid replacement and if we're deficient in vitamins and minerals then the deficiencies need correcting too.
