Levels won't go up
Hello everyone. I was diagnosed with vit.d deficiency in December 2012, my level was 17,6 ng/ml. After 1 month of taking Alfacalcidol it only went up to 20,4 and I switched to OTC vit.d supplement (5000 IU/day).

I checked my levels again in February and it was 23,6 so I upped the dose to 10,000 IU/day. At this point I was diagnosed with severe magnesium deficiency (blood levels were low though within the normal range but my doc says this test is useless) and started taking 400 mg magnesium daily, later upped to 600 and then 800. I continued taking 10,000 IU of vit.d/day.

After 2 months my level only went up to 24,8. That was in April and at this point I checked the co-factors at vitdcouncil website and started taking zinc (daily) and vit. K ( 500 mcg, once a week maybe... but it's 625% RDA so I don't want to overdo it).

I just got my results back and after almost 7 months of treatment my level is 27,6.

Any ideas why? My doc says it's due to my chronic lyme which it could be I just wanna make sure there isn't something else that could be causing this. My main symptom is muscle tetany, I've been going to weekly massages for almost a year now, used to be up to 3 times a week actually at one point.

For what it's worth, today I learned my TSH is 5,5 (which I'm quite sure means I'm hypothyroid - waiting for a doc appointment to confirm it).
