I have PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) and like many people with kidney disease, cannot activate vitamin D into it's usable form of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D. My D levels were not outrageously low (in the mid 20s), but since i started supplementing a year ago, my D levels are now at 30 (as of a week ago).
Chest Pain and Heart Palpitations (worse when under stress)
Tingling in legs and mostly feet
General Weakness in body
I've had every test under the sun including:
Cardiac Stress Test
MRI of Chest and Brain
Lyme disease blood test
Numerous Spinal and Neuro Tests
All of these came back negative...so I started supplementing D...i started feeling better...my symptoms were 75% improved. But...recently i had another "attack" that has been going on for a few weeks. The symptoms are about half as bad as they were before, so that leads me to believe that it is related to the D deficiency.
My question is...if my levels are a 30, which is in the at the bottom of the healthy range (30-100)...why are these symptoms still here and what number should I expect would make the symptoms go away completely, 50? I know some doctors say they like to see healthy people around 50.
