Done with Vitamin D test. Need suggestion - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
I have got my Vitamin D test done yesterday
wanted to share the results with you and take opinion
the rsults is 9.48
It is lower than the normal range
the sufficiency level on report says above 30 ng/ml
So you need vitamin D supplements
along with calcium and phosphate
I am not sure if its because of same but since year or so I feel exhausted
kind of tired and I had a chat regarding same on the same forum
but it did not help much
I always get yawning.. and even after taking enough sleep I still feel tired
can you suggest something
What other blood tests did you get done?
complete blood picture
Fasting plasma Glucose
other tests were normal?
How about hemoglobin
hemoglobin is also normal 15.2
How much is TSH?
T3 - 0.94
T4 - 9.30
TSH - 7.47
rest all urine and blood tests are normal
So TSH is raised
For how long have you been taking thyronorm?
from last 2 yrs
Since then you were taking the same dose or it fluctua?tes
I usually get this done pretty much regularly
this time it was late ..may be after 6 months
Everytime it came normal and this time it is high?
yeah..but I think I missed some doses these ays
There is one more thing that you can try
When taking thyroid supplements
We need to titrate the doses according to the symptoms
I guess you already know that
For a few days you can try taking a higher dose and see if your symptoms are improved
but I was having similar feeling when it was normal range
If your symptoms do not improve but you get symptoms of high thyroid instead
Sometimes it is impending
You know just when the body reserves are getting low, we get symptoms
If your symptoms do not improve but you get symptoms of high thyroid instead- it means 75 mcg is right for you
Consult a thyroid specialist
regarding vit d deficiency
can you suggest something for Vit d
Take shellcal 500 tab
one tablet daily
also whenever you get vitamin D levels tested also get calcium levels tested
shelcal has both calcium and vitamin d
needed for bones etc
because its too low and not sure for how long
might be from years
mostly it affects bones
so any direct suppliments for Vit D?
in indian setting when we are exposed to sun, there are less chances that vit d will get low
mostly it is in combination
ARISTO is one that has vit a, d, e
It can also be taken
You will need to take it for atleast 3 months and then repeat the tests
We need to make sure that oral supplements are working
If not then maybe injections will be needed
Aristo is once per day?
it is better to take with calcium
since calcium will be needed to make the bones
Just keep checking its levels every 3 months so that it does not get high
so you mean Shelcal + Aristo?
just one at a time
start with shelcal
So do you have any question here?
thanks for your time
thanks for consulting me
