In brief: Check kidney function

May need to contact your PCP, and have them work you up for conditions involving your kidney, ovaries and thyroid.
Usually with obesity, vitamin D tends to be low, because it depots in adipose or fat cells. And this may require you taking higher amounts that your PCP will recommend for you to take. Your adrenals may be producing a lower a.m. cortisol which is exhibited by fatigue. So this should be investigated further.
