My last round of bloodwork showed my vitamin D 25-OH level is at 4 ng/ml, which is apparently severely deficient. I will be driving to Glendale next week for an injection.
Has anyone ever had this done? How long before I notice any benefit? Will this help with the horrid tiredness I feel all the time?
There a few folk that have gotten them. Once you get that level up, will you be able to maintain with supplementing or is your body just not absorbing even dry D3?
I recently had a round of Vitamin D injection and iron infusion. For me the scale finally start moving again after both. Low vitamin d can slow down your weight-loss. I believe my vitamin d has always been low which has caused slow weight loss over the years before having weight-loss surgery. With this surgery we now have to pay attention to our vitamin levels.
My daughter turned me on to this post as I don't come by very often anymore. I had a D injection in January by Dr. K back in January '13. My D was not as low as some. It was at 30 almost constantly once even going down to 19, still not so low. I was feeling tired (but that is a lot part of the fibromyalgia symptoms I have) and since I do have fibromyalgia I was advised to get my D up maybe to 80 or even 100. So my D came up to 50 at last draw in September. My primary doc just reordered another D draw to see where it is. If it is still 50 or lower, I plan to order a vitamin D injectable from the compounding pharmacy near me and have my primary doc inject it into me. It is $85 whi*****ludes the $10 shipping fee. I just found out that my insurance will not reimburse me though. When I had the D injected by Dr. K I was not charged the $75 actual fee. I don't understand why yet. I do take 100,000 IU daily of the D3-50 to hopefully keep my D up.
Good luck to you and anyone else with low D. I just never expected to have so many vitamin issues with the DS. Wishful thinking I guess.
I've been wondering if one injection will do the trick..Only one doctor here in town does them and he's not my primary, so I have to drive to Dr. K's office in Glendale. An all day journey for a shot. Yeek!
I've been exhausted for months. I wake up counting the hours until I can go out to my car on my lunch break and take a nap. Very frustrated with the lack of energy. I'm very much hoping this will help with that.
Thanks for the info!
