Hi I'm 33 & male and live in the UK. I've felt terrible for 2 months and am now signed off from work and recent bloods have shown high white blood cell count and very low vitamin D. My doctor has prescribed d3 20,000 twice a week and I'm hoping that I'll feel better due to this. I'm also taking basic calcium/magnesium and some iron as I thought this might help. She said it wasn't worth looking into lightbox or tanning beds, but I think it would be, given that there is no useful sun in the UK right now. Would it help? Does anyone know where I can find the sort of beds that have uvb bulbs? Thanks a lot

    Perhaps reading the following article by the VDC will help. You will find it at http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/blog/uv-light-in-the-wintertime/# . It sounds like you have just started the Vitamin D supplement so I would give it a chance. You may also want to read about co factors for Vitamin D here at http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/ to make sure you are taking enough and the right ones. (Hint you will probably need to at least add more magnesium.) Also the VD Council promotes that taking Vitamin D on a daily basis is probably better for us. So 20,000 units twice a week would translate to about 5000 units a day. Most very low Vitamin D levels seem to be treated with 50,000 units a week which translates to about 7000 units a day. I would assume with a high white count that the doctor has checked for other problems and found none. Most important get your Vitamin D blood levels checked again in several months to make sure you are making progress.
