Question
I AM DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR A WAY TO GET VITAMIN D3 INTO MY SYSTEM. MY LEVELS ARE RUNNING AROUND 24 RIGHT NOW AND THE JOINT ACHES, BOUTS OF DEPRESSION, CHRONIC FATIGUE, ETC., ARE REALLY KEEPING ME FROM FUNCTIONING IN A NORMAL MODE. I HAVE GI PROBLEMS, SO I HAVE TRIED EVERY DROP AND PILL, AND MOUTH SPRAY AND THEY ALL BOTHER MY STOMACH REALLY BAD. MY DR. KNOWS THERE IS AN IV PREPARATION, BUT SIDE EFFECT IS GI BLEED-----NOT ANYTHING EITHER ONE OF US WANT TO DO. IS THERE AN IM OR CREME PREPARATION THAT ANYBODY KNOWS ABOUT???????????? THANK YOU, FOR YOUR TIME.
