When I went for my check up at the RE’s office I learned I was vitamin D deficient. My level was 14.7 and it was supposed to be at least 30. I am not surprised as I avoid milk products because they bug me and my office has no windows. I learned a lot of people are vitamin d deficient. Vitamin d can affect your energy levels so I was willing to try it.
I was put on 50,000 iu a week for a month and then they are going to check my level again. The first time I took the pill I slept better and felt good for a day or two, but crashed on Saturday. I was so tired. I noticed the next week it sorta happened again. I felt more rested, I got a ton done, but by Friday I was feeling down/hormonal. It was like the dose worked the first few days and then my level went way down or something a few days later. I had done some research that vitamin d can also affect your moods and bring you out of a mild depression.
So this morning I went out and bought some vitamin d that I can take every day. I need to talk to the doc who started me on vitamin d, but I didn’t want to spend the whole weekend feeling out if sorts. I took 2,000 iu with lunch and I already feel a little better. I am hoping this daily dose will keep my levels a little more normal and I won’t have the tiredness/moodiness I have been feeling.
Anyone have any similar experiences?
