Happy Tuesday! You may have noticed that I’ve been a little MIA the past few weeks here on the blog. I had been feeling run down, fatigued, depressed and exhausted, and finally managed to make it to the lab to get the blood work that two of my doctors had ordered done. By “finally managed”, I mean that my darling hubby drove me to the appointment for moral support… I had just been putting this test off for so long.

So why was I resisting getting a blood test? Well for one thing it was just another task on my list that I was feeling too run down to complete. But I think the main reason was this little thing you might have heard of called “Doctor Google.” I kept Googling my symptoms of fatigue, muscle aches, exhaustion, etc. and every time the trusted World Wide Web seemed to diagnose me with the big “C” or an equally bad auto-immune disease.

When the doctor’s office called me on Monday to give me my results, my heart might have skipped a beat, until I remembered that doctor’s don’t usually diagnose anything super serious over the phone through their nurse practitioner. I was so relieved to find out that my big mystery illness was none other than severe Vitamin D deficiency. That’s right folks, this Southern California girl (who lives just 4 blocks from the beach) apparently does not get out into the sun enough. While an optimal level of Vitamin D is considered to be somewhere between 40 and 80, mine test came back at 11. My doctor called in a prescription strength Vitamin D supplement to my pharmacy that I have to take for the next 12 weeks before switching to over the counter supplements. I’m so grateful to know what was wrong and really feel foolish for not having gotten these tests taken care of sooner. Can any of you relate?

    Can totally relate. Sat in a doctor’s office with a Vitamin D level of 9. The doctor tells me that I need more sun and I will feel better soon. Showed him a tan line that made it obvious that I was getting plenty of sun. Took the megadose prescription but also had to follow up with long term OTC supplements to reach normal levels. It took almost two years. For what ever reason, I don’t “process” Vitamin D like most people. Stay on top of it and have your blood levels monitored regularly to measure your progress. Getting your levels to the correct levels will benefit your health in so many ways! Hope you feel better soon.

    Thanks for sharing this Kim! I think I also don’t process Vitamin D properly so I am probably going to have to stay on top of this for the rest of my life. Glad to hear there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. 🙂

    yes, I can relate. Earlier this year I had problems breathing and I thought I developed anxiety, but it turns out that my vitamin and iron levels were down and after medication I feel better. Not everyone processes vitamins the same way, I live in Mediterranean climate and I’ve been know to lack the sun vitamin too.

    You look fantastic in that dress!!!!

    I take 5,000 IU each day or I really start to feel bad, bec. hypothyroidism causes deficiencies like that, and take vitamins A, E, and K with D. These are fat soluble. Added Selenium and zinc, too.
