Reply To: Hello. I live in the U.K and had been asking for a Vitamin D test for over a year. They finally agreed and my level came back as 8. !!
My Doctor has said I cannot be put on a higher dose of Vit D because I am on diuretics…..and a higher dose would risk hypocalcaemia.
My health has been deteriorating in the last year. Absolutely no energy, lethargy and ectopic heartbeats. Would these symptoms be associated with such a low level of Vit D ?
Also, how are patients on diuretics and needing high doses of Vit D usually treated ?
