Vitamin D

Maxine mentioned on an earlier discussion that Vitamin D makes her symptoms worse. Does anyone else experience this? My son hasn't been so great lately. Now that I think about it, he's been taking Vitamin D for the last couple of months. I wonder now if that's contributing to an increase in his symptoms.

Vitamin D makes me feel much better, but I have a chronic insufficiency.

I have read that an excess of Vitamin D can give you the same symptoms as too little (sleeplessness, exhaustion, irritability, blood sugar problems); it is possible to overdose on D if you take supplements. Is your son taking supplements because he has low levels? If he doesn't have low D, maybe the supplements are making his D too high?

Also, I think the type of supplement can sometimes matter - I take 2000 IUDs a day and have no adverse side effects, but I didn't feel good when I took the once-a-month mega-dose.

Interesting thread...I've thought there was something odd going on w/ me and vitamin d but since it's supposed to help I didn't think it was possible. But maybe it is! I was taking the 50000/week dose and really felt crappy after I would take it - not immediately but the few days following. I have switched to 2000 of d3 (i have upped it to 6000/day to almost even out the 50000 units I would have had otherwise). I take that daily and don't think it makes me feel as icky.

Hiya,

I wanted to remind again to those that find D3 makes them feel worse, that it is derived from sheep wool (lanolin). So, if you have an allergy to this, this maybe the cause. A lot of people seem to be sensitive to it. Try D2 instead and see if that makes you less symptomatic.

:)
