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?
No, I did not get my results for vitamin D yet. He is my newest doctor and I feel very angry with him. He does not allow his staff to read the results of your own blood work over the phone. It frustrates me because he wants me to schedule an appointment to get more money from my insurance, just to read my blood work that he already knows is fine. I’m tired of seeing people looking for help and all this doctor cares about is more money.
Yes, I have increased my dosages a few times for as long as a week. In fact, I have been taking 20,000iu for the past four days or so. I’m thinking of continuing it if you believe it is safe.
I think all is fine. No other deficiencies or hypercalcemia. I am still unable to guess if my muscle problem is atrophy or they are this weak because of the D deficiency. I have learned through my treatment that other than increasing your dosage, there is no way to rush this. I feel a little tingling in my legs when I am laying down especially in my legs. I am guessing that’s the only indication that the vitamin D is aabsorbing calcium. Last night, it felt like my bones were so strong that it just cracked up my posture into place. It felt very cool.
Thanks for the good words and I will continue updating. Peace
