My vitamin d level is 18 ..why vitamin d supplement gives me horrible muscle cramps ..should I take calcium with vitamin d or take vitamin d only ?

Unusual response: This is a very unusual reaction to Vit D. You are more likely to be reacting to the other ingredients in the supplement so look for a pure Vit D3 with minimal additives. Most adults need 5-8000 iu/day to get optimal levels of 50-80. You probably don't need calcium unless your diet is low in calcium but it is wise to take Vit K with Vit D. Muscle cramps may be caused by low Magnesium. See comment: ...Read more

Which vitamin d should I take to help decrease psoriasis break outs...Vit d 1000..Vit d 2000..Vit d 500 with 1200 calcium..Stores have huge selection?

Be careful.: Regardless of what you have read on "natural health" web sites, there is no credible evidence that oral vitamin d is an effective treatment for psoriasis. High doses can raise your calcium levels to the point where you can develop kidney stones and other serious medical problems. 800-1000 iu is a safe daily dosage to prevent vitamin d deficiency. ...Read more

I am of a low weight, and feeling very low in spirit and energy but all blood tests are normal except for a low vitamin D. I exercise regularly, ?

I think you are wise: to consider there may be something more going on here beyond vitamin D deficiency. Yes, "feeling low in spirit" can result from vitamin D deficiency, but I am worried about depression. Underweight can also be a symptom. Consider this and seek evaluation even if you don't feel "sad." Many have depression without recognizing depressed mood. Treatment is effective. Don't be embarrassed; it's common. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with severe vitamin d deficiency. I am really tired and don't feel i can't go back to work, how do I get my energy back?

Vitamin D: If you were diagnosed with "severe" vitamin d deficiency, your 25ohd level would usually be <20 ng/ml. For this, your doctor can treat you with 50, 000 iu d3 orally once per week for 6-8 weeks. This could be followed by taking 1000-2000 iu per day, with a re-test @ 3-4 months to see where you are. If the reason for vit d deficiency is poor absorption, your needs may differ. Ask your doctor. ...Read more

Dexpression, lathergic, low level of vitamin b12. And vitamin d deficiency, low level of energy?

And your question?: I'm not sure what you are asking. Yes, vit d deficiency can cause fatigue. It is easy to correct with 5-8000 iu of d3/day. B12 deficiency can be serious too- try 1000 mcg of sublingual b12/day ; if that does not help try injections. See http://bit.Ly/1fnt3ox ; http://bit.Ly/1607tg3 if fatigue persists after correcting then see a good doc to explore the many other possible causes of fatigue. ...Read more

Can i take citracal calcium plus vitamin d slow realease at the same time as centrum energy multivitamin/multimineral?

Can i take citracal calcium plus vitamin d slow realease at the same time as centrum energy multivitamin/multimineral?

Yes you may: Yes you may. Calcium absorption tends to plateau when a single dose exceeds 500-600 mg. Even though the two together would exceed this number, you may be fine because one is slow release. Taking the 2 separately always makes absorption more efficient, but if you never remember taking a 2nd dose, taking both together would still wind up getting you more calcium absorbed than 1 supplement. ...Read more

Don't fool with: Mother nature! dhea pills generally don't contain much dhea, and even if they did, dhea is metabolized into cortisone, estrogen and testosterone -- and you don't have any way to control which it is converted into. Why take something that can't help you and can potentially harm you? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. How about getting counseling rather than rx? ...Read more
