HI I am sorry I know I posted previously but I cannot find the post and my profile says Ive never posted so here goes.
I started getting terrible anxiety around end of November, so bad that I stopped eating became very depressed very quickly during the course of this time I had bloods done the first set revealed low folates and a vitamin D of 28 nmol/L. By January 23rd I was low on ferritin, folates, I had a B12 deficiency and my Vitamin D was showing as 22 nmol/L
By my local lab guidelines I was originally given 800iu daily as I was considered insufficient not deficient unless under 25 nmol/L. By the second test by UK guidelines and even my local lab I was deificient so on to 4000iu a day of D3 for about 12 weeks then on to maintenance dose
I have a couple of questions.
Forums are telling me I should be taking more than this (maybe to restore my levels faster?) and that I should be taking magnesium -which I was anyway but also something called K2? 1
1 Do I need this K2 certainly nothing in Uk recommendations about it?
2 Also is anxiety associated with low D levels? As Id heard of links with depression but not anxiety?
3 What do you consider optimal as Ive heard too much can be a bad thing also
Thanks so much
