I don't metabolize Vit D well, I always have a low Vit D level. By the way couldnt respond to your entry about LPN. It wouldn't let me. Yes me to. 13 yrs as a LPN made Nationals on the test. Worked on Orthopaedics and Telemetry and Nursing Homes. Loved counseling was very difficult to have to give up my career. Had no choice. Sorry to hear your story. Hey we must move on and do the best we can with what life gives us right? That's all any of us can do!
I used to live in MN. so thought my deficiency was due to their long winters.. (Brrr). But it's the same in Arkansas. Have talked with many others who have the deficiency. I wonder what's causing it among those with FMS..
I take 2000 daily but occasionally my levels drop and I have to take the prescription strength. I love the sun - for me it feels good. (when it's not 90 degrees F and humid). So even with sun exposure my levels are low..
