Wooster Posted November 27, 2007 Share Posted November 27, 2007 So I just got labs back from my regular doc (not my psyNP, though she gets a copy of everything). After 4 months of Vitamin D supplement (mostly regularly), my vitamin D levels are still RIDICULOUSLY low (like around 10, and I gather baseline should be around 40). For the first time EVER I've had a thyroid (T4?) show up as sub-par. We've been testing my thyroid regularly for as long as I can remember-or at least since college, anyway. And my cholesterol is sitting at 217 (200 is the cut off for normal?) Here's what I really want to know... 1) Which, if any of these things are symptoms of things we already know about? 2) What's the missing link? Why am I so darn vit. D deficient? I know that can cause depression. Is that part of the problem? 3) Why am I STILL so vit. D deficient after 4 mos. of 2000iu daily (plus calcium citrate to help absorb)? 4) My regular doc is likely going to want to put me on synthroid or something. I think I'm already taking too many meds. How likely is it that the thyroid will 'fix' everything else? 5) Is this part of the long-term effects of high levels of cortisol floating around in my system? Should i move into a monestary where everyone has taken vows of silence and we concentrate on polishing sticks and petting sheep all day?
