My vit d blood test back in December was 29.7.............no wonder they put me on what they call "the hulk" of vitamin D. But its still only 50,000IU's a WEEK. Just wanted to let you know what my VIt D level was. They said they will re test me when I come back in for saliva test results which is not until another month from now. All this extra time adds up when your miserable here.

julie from ky one more thing, sorry
by: Wray

Hi Julie Thanks for giving the link to your first page, but please would you reply on that page in future. It helps me keep a thread going, otherwise I have to search through my replies, as I can't remember everything you've said or what I've replied! I understand about stopping the cream you're using due to the sore breasts, but stopping for a test is pointless. The whole idea of the test is to find out your progesterone level. Stopping means your level drops and what does that tell you or your doctor. I'm sorry about the stock out, it's lasting far longer than we anticipated, I see it's still not in. Any cream is fine to use, the bottom line is is it cost effective, many of the low strength creams are costly. I don't think the 100mg/day will touch sides, please use the 200mg/day in preference. We do have a page on Breast Tenderness and another on Breast Cysts you could look through. Low iodine is often a reason for sore breasts. I'm pleased you've up the vitamin D, and taking it daily. Vitamin D has a half life of 24 hours, which means it drops quite sharply over the course of a week. Your level is low, the minimum specialists recommend is 50ng/ml, the less cautious say it should be between 70-100ng/ml. I tend to err on the side of the less cautious, mine is currently 92ng/ml. Having a test in a month is good, it will show you how much the 10,000iu has increased it by. If insufficient I suggest you increase to 20,000iu per day for a month, and then drop back to 10,000iu thereafter. Take care Wray

Make sure to take D3
by: Anonymous

Hey - just wanted to comment and say that it's really important to take D3 not the D2 prescription the doctor gives you. If you google D3 there's a ton of info on it and how much better it is for treating deficiencies than D2. Good luck!
