Is an orthopedic the right doctor to consult for vitamin B12 and vitamin D3 deficiency? I face neuropsychiatric symptoms coz of B12 deficiency too.
There is not much consulting to do re: d3deficiency- the problem should be readily corrected by taking appropriate amounts of d3 (5-10, 000 iu/day)- see http://bit. Ly/1gnxnk0

A spot cortisol is of little value except as a screen for addison's which I will assume is ruled out. Your high prolactin and low libido in a man with some serious acne like you're being treated for makes me suspect strongly that you have a prolactinoma. ...Read more

Studies show vitamin d can help reduce symptoms of chrons disease. Newer ones claim deficient people may have longer lifes. Is their truth to either?
Media science: The cmaj study was of very old folks and found a correlation that is almost certainly the result of some variable other than vitamin d intake (likely a variant in metabolism.) severe crohn's interferes with vitamin d absorption, likely explaining the effect. The media distort this stuff into "news" and this confuses everybody. If you have crohn's or not, consider a vitamin d supplement. ...Read more
