No wonder you feel rubbish! Your Vitamin D is very low,I would recommend a supplement of 3000iu to 5000iu to get Vitamin D up... Take with K2 to get the D where it needs to go.

I don't know much about other results but the experts on this fabulous site will advise you. Hope you feel better soon x


Thanks Lindsay x


'Take with K2 to get the D where it needs to go'

Actually, the K2 makes sure the calcium goes to where it needs to go. Taking D3 increases absorption of calcium from food, and K2 makes sure it doesn't build up in the soft tissues. :)


I knew it was something like that! I'm taking so many painkillers and supplements I should be rattling x

Hi Debs. I have many of your issues so can commiserate with you, including sleep Apnoea. I have taken omeprazole for 6 years now, for hiatus hernia and stomach surgery. It really does help and I would recommend staying with it. I also take vitamin d as a chewable tablet and have a vitamin b12 injection every 3 months, which definitely help with the tiredness issues. Like you I take loads of pain killers including Zomorph and a vitamin additive called Desunin, which was prescribed by the dietician after my stomach surgery. I would recommend you allow your body to sleep as much as possible right now. When all the vitamins kick in you will gradually feel less tired. Hope that helps and happy to chat any time if you just want to talk with someone who understands what you are going through
