I take a multivitamin daily with 800 iu of Vitamin D. I also recently added 4 gummy vitamin D's that total an addition 1200. I have been hovering with a deficiancy of around 19... today I got the labs back and now I am down to 14. My dr. said she needed me to add 50,000 iu weekly and then after a month go to doing the 50,000 iu once a month in addition to my normal daily 2,000.
I am frustrated.
I have hashimotos. I was just increased from 88 to 100 mcg of Synthroid this week. I feel my best with TSH around 1.5, but I had gone up to TSH of 3 on the 88.
Is it possible to have my problem with Vitamin D be not completely caused by my thryroid? Maybe malabsorbtion or kidney problems? I have had two tests show I have protien in urine. I have flank pain periodically. I have high blood pressure, diabetes, high triglycerides and low HDL, and swelling of ankles and hands. I often have stomach aches with multiple loose stools a day... so that's why I was also thinking possible malabsorbtion
