Reply To: Vitamin D Deficiency – How to tackle?
For over a year, I've been suffering from severe tiredness and joint pain. Sometimes I feel so tired and painful,
that I can't move!
I've been taking 800u of Vitman D for five years now, but my vitman D is still low.
Six months ago, my doctor said to double the dose (1600u). In the time I've also been sitting in the sun wearing only my swimming trunks (although I am in England so there is not much sun).
Despite this my Vitman D has remained unchanged.
My doctor is now saying to take triple the dose (2400u).
1) Is there anything else that can be done other than increasing the dose. This looks like it could drag on forever.
2) Also is it better to take liquid or tablets?
Background: Aged 35, male, I have brown (Indian) skin, but I have lived in North of England since birth (I was born here).
I have suffered with pituitary tumor but this has been cured.
I only eat freshly made food (rich in fresh Veg and Fruit, I easily eat over 10 different types of fruit/veg a day), so I know my diet isn't the problem.
