Hi guys, I recently had a blood test done for vitamin D & this was the result:
25 Hydorxy Vitamin D total (vit. D2 + vit. D3) = 23.77 ng/ml
Deficiency : Below 20.0 ng/ml
Insufficiency : 21.0 - 29.0 ng/ml
Sufficiency : 30.0 - 100.0 ng/ml
Method = Electochemiluminescence Immunoassay (ECLIA)
So I have low vit D (in my doc's words). However, the tricky part is that my doctor has told me to get more sun & has LOWERED my supplemental vit D3 from 500 I.U. to 200 I.U. (also those 200I.U. ones are EXPENSIVE), I'm also taking centrum & he has told me to continue with that.
What do you guys think? does this make sense?
Shhh….my common sense is tingling.
