See a good doctor: If you were healthy you wouldn't be so tired! low vit d can cause fatigue but there are many other possible causes including anemia, thyroid & other hormonal imbalances, vitamin/mineral/amino acid deficiencies, chronic infections (viral, bacterial, fungal, parasitic), environmental or food allergies, environmental toxins, sleep apnea, stress etc.If taking d doesn't solve this please see a good doc! ...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 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

Since my levels were high, calcium and vitamin d. Any others that will help with weight loss and energy?

Weight loss diet: To be at a healthy weight, activate metabolism by eating protein serving (size of your palm)+complex carbs every 2-3 hrs/day. Sprinkle 3 fruits, 4veggies, at least 3 tsp butter/olive oil and 3 servings milk (greek yogurt). Make sure you take in 80-100 oz pure water/day (8-10 glasses of 8oz water) try putting in fridge with slices of cucumbr & citrus). Exercise 30-45min/day, ok to spilt into blocks. ...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?

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

Supplements: B12 even if you get more it is not a problem will be washed out, Vit D can cause toxicity it taken too much. Both these vitamins levels could be easily checked with simple blood tests to relieve the doubts. ...Read more
