Reply To: I am in my 6th week of taking 10,000iu for vitamin D deficiency. My level was 28ng/ml. I have symptoms of depression and muscle weakness. How long of supplementing until I feel relieved of my symptoms?
I would have thought you would have seen some kind of improvement by now even if it was just a little. If your levels have not really increased then you will have to take more Vitamin D and then see what happens in regards to symptoms.
So I do read a lot of books and do internet research about hypothyroidism. Two things I suggest. One I would get a copy of the thyroid blood work and see where you fall in the ranges. Second I read once someone that did not show any thyroid problems on any blood work. (I think it was Mary Shomon but I do not remember.) The doctor said well “there is nothing else I can do except do a “needle aspiration” of the thyroid.” Doctor thought she would say “no” and she said “do it”! That is how they found her thyroid problem when all else failed! I have seen antibody levels “higher then the lab range recommends”, that doctors then say ” Oh but the figure is not high enough to cause a problem”. Well then why are there “ranges”?
