What Could Be The Cause Of A Very Low Vitamin D Level In My Lab Results
My vitamin D level was at 12 and so I was placed on D3 50,000 for 8 weeks. If my level isn't up now should I do another 8 weeks or try something else?
My vitamin d level is 36 as per the lab result. Shall i take any supplement and how much ? Thank you
Vitamin D: There is great debate on where the vitamin d level should be. I don't think anyone really knows exactly. Since vitamin d is considered more like a hormone i believe that the level should be higher. Low vitamin d has been correlated with higher cancer rates, increase in all types of mortality, inc heart attacks. I would recommend a level of 60-90. I would take d3 5000 iu/d and recheck in 6 mo. ...Read more
I had my vitamin d level checked and level was 21. I wanted to get a prescription for 50000 IU weekly X 8 weeks. Can provide pdf of lab results ?
In the darkness: B"sd I wrote just recently Despite endless studies the "correct" recommended level of vitamin D remains quite arbitrary - usually given as 30 but as low as 15 may be fine. Some recent studies also suggest higher levels may even be harmful. In some cases I check the calcium and parathyroid hormone levels (PTH) as elevated levels usualy reflect Vit D deficiency. I welcome your indvidual consult ...Read more
Can vitamin d3 supplement help me if my vitamin d level is low (24) according to lab range? I read that supplements don't do much. Any insight?
D3 supplementation: will raise your D3 level. Please do as your doc recommends but 24 is very low. Experts suggest between 50 and 80 for a D level. As Mark Twain once said: "Be careful what you read about health; you may die of a misprint." Peace and good health. ...Read more

Is a lab result of 48% for lymphocytes and 9.7 Bun/creatnin of any concern. Low vitamin D/25 hdroxy 21.5....Ige level of 497. Thank you?
Out of context: Lab values out of context = difficult to interpret. "Abnormal" may be irrelevant, even normal for an individual.Experts disagree on low end of normal 25-OH vit D(some say 20 some 30).IgE can be high for many reasons, most allergic.BUN/Cr relevance depends on what BUN and Cr are - if normal, low BUN/Cr can be malnutrition, liver problem, or OK. Lymphocyte% relevance depends on wbc, neutrophil% etc. ...Read more
What causes you to have a borderline high calcium level but very very low Vitamin D Level? Any diseases or disorders associated with this?
Many: What is your PTH and phosphorus levels and the serum albumin level ? Further testing is needed to determine what is driving the high normal calcium. Are you on medications including calcium pills or tums (calcium carbonate)? The labs should be repeated. I am assuming your vitamin d25 is low that is not unexpected where we live.
