Slightly off topic but I have osteopoenia, likely to be a result of hypothyroid mis-management, and need vitamin D and Calcium which would normally be prescribed by a GP. Unfortunately as I am vegan the surgery has said "NHS rules locally state that a patient should purchase such medications over the counter" so I will have to pay for my own. One problem is that I cannot find a good-enough vegan supplement, the other is that I question the reasonableness of this and the fairness.
Can anyone tell me if they know better? Do any of you know of any vegans prescribed D and Calcium?
