Started NatPro - just have a question on rosacea?

by Vicki
(Iowa)

I had a complete hysterectomy at age 39 and am now 58 years old. I have read a lot about progesterone deficiency and decided to try NatPro- I am amazed by how some of the symptoms I was dealing with have already become lessened. Still have many of them but has been better. I have been using the cream for going on 2 months now and will continue- I am wondering about rosacea that I am experiencing- started having symptoms last year for the first time and has just gotten worse. How long before I can expect to see some of this start to diminish?

Started Natpro - just have a question on rosacea?
by: Wray

Hi Vicki I'm so pleased some of your symptoms have diminished so quickly, as it can take 3 to 6 months. It's interesting, but rosacea seems to affect mostly females, and between the ages 30-50, see here. It makes one suspect oestrogen again, as from the mid thirties progesterone levels begin dropping. Vitamin D has antimicrobial properties and could help, see here here and here. A lack of this vitamin also reduces the benefits of progesterone. But I can't answer your question about how long it will take to go. You might like to read our page on Menopause. Take care Wray

Thanks for the information! I had my vitamin D level checked and it is in the normal range but I have increased to 5000 IU to keep it on the upper part.
Thanks for all that you do!

Hi Vicki Thanks for the kind words. When you say your vitamin D is in the normal range, the 'normal' range goes from 30-100ng/ml which I think is daft. It's far too great a range. Specialists are now saying it should be between 70-100ng/ml, is yours within this range? Please check your results. If you were taking less than 5000u/day then I feel it's probably low. Take care Wray

Wray-
My level is too low then. I had the test and it is right at 40. Should I go to the 10,000 IU? I had the test done about 2 weeks ago and have only done the 5000 IU for about the last 10 days. Let me know if I need to go higher

Thanks

Vitamin D

Hi Vicki Thanks for looking it up, yes it is too low. Well certainly in my view and what I've learnt over the years from researchers. I would suggest you increase to 10000iu/day, but have another test done in about 6 months. I'd be interested to hear what it goes up to! If at all concerned about the 'high' dose, please look through our page on Vitamin D. In particular this study here. Take care Wray

I will go up to the 10,000 IU- thanks for your help! And will get it rechecked in 6 months!
I feel like I am heading in the right direction!

I am so happy that I started on NatPro- and have upped my vitamin D to the 10,000 IU - Just have a quick question- I would like to take some type of vitamin supplement but am not sure what to get. I was taking Centrum but I don't feel it is helping me much. Could you recommend something for me?

Thanks again!

Hi Vicki Thanks for your enthusiasm! If asked I generally say anything made by Life Extension. They have a huge range of excellent supps, plus many articles too. Which one you chose, well I'll have to leave that to you. Take care Wray
