I have been struggling with autoimmune thyroiditis for 6 years and am currently on 150mcg a day of Eltroxin. I was feeling so unwell that, in the end, I went to see a private endocrinologist. My vitamin D level is 29.7 (<30) - tested by doctor, and so the endo gave me 6 days of 50,000 iu Cholecalciferol and then one a month of that strength for 6 months. I was just beginning to feel the benefit when it was day 4, and of course stopped at day 6 (last week) and now feel worse again.
Interestingly, I emailed the endo and asked for his thoughts about what I should do now I felt unwell again and I received the reply today:
These are his exact words "I would be happy to see you before (10 April) but your vitamin D will be okay now and I am not sure I can explain this. I would hope that the benefit will come back. If you want we can see you earlier than a month." He hasn't even asked me to get my vitamin D level checked.
I am speechless! I cannot believe I am paying this man so much money and he can't explain why I'm not feeling well after stopping all Vitamin D after 6 days! Consequently I have arranged to have a vitamin D test done on Thursday at the doctors.
Would love to hear any commets/suggestions.
