My daughter was diagnosed about 20 years ago with ME, she manages to work but has no social life and lives at home, so her meals are prepared and her laundry done. She normally goes straight to bed when she gets in, and eats off a tray. Her diet is awful and she is overweight considerably. I don't want to nag her re the weight as I feel she has enough on her plate as it is.
6 months ago GP told her she was Vitamin D deficient and to take (I think) 1000units/mg ? per day. She did this and then inadvertently picked up 2.5 strength and took those without realising. She had another blood test which showed her a Vitamin D levels had not improved after 6 months. GP says this is normal, because it is winter, is this correct? The reason I ask is that she was taking more than twice the dose GP said and still no improvement. She is to go back for another BT in a few months time. She has also just been out in Foluc acid as her Folate was low
