I feel like crying and don’t know what to do. My Dr asked me to do a routine blood test to repeat my prescription. The results were;
Vitamin D 57. N nmol/L less than 75nmol/L is insufficient I have been taking 3000iu of vit D a day for the last 3 months yet my vit D is still insufficient.
My dr now wants to reduce my daily dose from 125mg of levothyroxine to 100mg. Is my dose too high?
I have spent the last 3 months on a low carb, gluten free diet. I finally got to a point where I feel good. My hair, which had receded about 2inches either side of my forehead, has finally grown back. I have energy, I don’t feel cold all the time, my skin is less dry, the pain in all my joints has massively reduced and I was very very slowly losing weight. 4kg over 3 months.
I tried to explain all of this but she has insisted my dose be reduced. When I asked for more tests she refused.
I don’t understand why my vit D is so low when I spend hours a day outside, I have a dog, and take a supplement. Or why I need to reduce my dose just when I’ve got to a point where I feel normal.
