My pdoc just tested my Vitamin D, blood cell counts, platelets, for base reading. Even though I take megadoses of Vitamin D in the winter months (80,000 ui every other month, for 6 months) + I take a daily Multivitamin, eat super balanced diet, my Vitamin D is still "insufficient"...How can this be? Do you think she will increase/continue my doses or give me injections? I don't know how this works.... Should I get my B12 levels (or any other B vitamins) checked? I read that some people lack the enzyme that breaks down B12 to Folic Acid (I don't know how common this is)? I hear this is very important in mood disorders/depression. Is there anything else you guys would suggest testing? If you have insufficiency (along with chronic mood disorder) does this mean you should take the injections for life?
