Hi Blu, thanks for being here to answer questions. Do you know if you were deficient and your levels got better with rx vit D2 if you would still have to take vit D forever because you were once deficient?
I've been reading this forum and am confused. Some people take D2, some D3 and others just D. It was also stated that D3 (I think) absorbs better than D2. I may have gotten these mixed up. It was also stated that you can take too much D2 but D3 is okay. What are all these D's. My blood work was taken for Vit D-Hydroxy. Is that D, D2 or D3. The dr's don't explain this stuff and I was clueless to know to ask.
Also, the dr never said to take D with Magnisium or any other supplement. Should I be taking Mag to help absorption? I'm new to this site and I'm just plain confused. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Crystal
I literally just got the call from my doctor saying I am vitamin D deficient (level was 17.4). Doctor is calling in a prescription of Vitamin D to take once a week for a couple of weeks and then I will take it one a month for a couple of months, followed by bloodwork to recheck my levels. I see people mentioning about D, D2 and D3. What's the difference?
Also, what are the symptoms of low Vitamin D? Is low vitamin D the reason I am so fatigued and having joints and muscles pains, as well as other symptoms of high blood pressure, foggy thinking and memory loss, feeling sad, bloating, diarrhea and constipation ? What about pelvic pain and loss of menses?
