Recommendation regarding using ox bile after gallbladder removal for omega 3 absorption as well as vitamin a d, k.
Not needed: Your liver makes plenty of bile. The gallbladder just stores it. When your gallbladder is removed the bile your liver makes drips into the intestines continuosly and is still there to help digest fats (and fat soluble vitamins) adding bovine bile salts will not be helpful and may lead to diarrhea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My vitamin d is low despite prescription supplements. Gallbladder removed long ago so may not absorb fat-soluble vitamins. Should i try ox bile?
Low vitamin D3: There may be a group of patients who do not absorb vitamin d3 efficiently. They seem to require higher doses of d3 ( 6000 to 10000 units daily) to achieve adequate blood levels, (between 40 and 70). Don't give up, stay on your vitamin d3 and get annual blood level. Your gallbladder surgery is likely unrelated. ...Read more
Stage iiib colon cancer, starting chemo tues. Vitamin d 25-hydroxy level is 9 ng/ml. Will taking vitamin D3 supplements help? If so, how many iu?
Possibly help.: There is some evidence that vitamin d deficiency is not desirable in patients with colon cancer. The goal should be to achieve a level of 30 ng/ml. Another vitamin d test should be done after taking 50, 000 units twice a week for 2 months. If you are considerably overweight 2-3 times the dose may be necessary. After achieving 30 ng/ml a daily dose of 1-2000 units may maintain this level. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Safe not advisable: Taking all those medicines together is probably safe but not advisable. Levothuroxine has to be taken on an empty stomach with a glass of water and no bother meds.

Why?: Vitamin b6 and vit. C are totally safe during pregancy. Is strongly advise everyone take at least 1000 mg of vit c 2x/day as a preventive measure and feel it is wise during pregnancy.

Vitamin d 20 ng/ml & nash. Vit a, e, k normal. Taking D3 for 2 months - no change. Can this be an absorption issue even tho other fat sol vits normal?

(serum mg is not so useful, since the body keeps this very stable, but your total body stores may still be deficient). http://tinyurl.com/msoth5j talk with your doctor about using magnesium glycinate to replenish this. It may help! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was advised to avoid Vit C prior to having fillers, Juvederm. Is that for actual Vit C supplement or should I also avoid foods containing vitamin C?

May be that is what they meant. I also recommend arnica montana for 3-5 days prior to the injection. ...Read more
