I've just had my VitD blood tests and also Calcium test back. You may remember that I am suffering from severe pain in my back which radiates around to my ribs after a fairly short period of time of any exertion.
My VitD is 67.7 and the range is anything greater than 50 is sufficient. Plus March to September the normal levels are 18 to 129
My calcium is 2.37 with a range of (2.12 to 2.62), so I assume that I'm ok as I'm in the middle of that range.
Would you recommend that I carry on taking my daily 1000iu VitD tabs as I spend most of my days in doors as I sew/craft for a living. I'm tempted to ask for a loading dose to increase my levels to somewhere in the middle of the range, but have a feeling my GP will refuse.
Apparently my thyroid levels are (sorry I can't remember which one is which - brain fog)- one is very low (it should be suppressed as I've had my thyroid removed due to cancer) and the other is very high. No numbers given but I'm due to see the consultant next week so I'll find out more then.
Could the high figure be the cause of all the aches etc. The consultant keeps reducing my dose and I'm now on 150mcg.
Any advice gratefully received, thanks Sue
