So after a bout of illness over xmas I have finally regained my health with
vit D (1000iu with k2mk7 better you brand)- level was 50 on last blood test but I wasn’t supplementing properly (have had loading doses in previous year)
and the b12 3000iu spray (same brand )- had loading dose injections in February - serum b1/ was 173-227 pre injections - same in 2015. Negative for IfA but not done any Gpc testing.
I take 400mcg of folic acid and a natural sea Source of magnesium tablet (has several types of magnesium in it)
I also take an effervescent 1000mcg vit C with 20?mg zinc tablet drink with spatone iron sachet.
I take 200mcg selenium with my thyroxine (125mcg) in the morning. Tsh And t4 fine. T3 was mid range. And now vitE also with it.
I’ve felt the best I have in ages- but I notice my stomach is very bloated. Part of it I think is digestion issues with the iron and magnesium I think-
But I’ve read that high doses of vit C and b12 and D can cause bloating ?
Any thoughts? I do love feeling better (and have reduced and alternated my vit C and iron dose) but a massive stomach isn’t helping! I’ve always had issues with bloating before- haven’t gone gluten free properly yet but previously it has helped. This bloating feels different though ... not sure if I should be worried.
I do think I need hcl betaine with pepsin for digestion and some liver reset support. Looking into that now.
Thanks in advance for any replies. ☺️
