I just got my bloodwork back, and I'm at 35ng's for vitamin D.
From what I understand this is low (supposed to be 50-85ng's). I already take 10,000 i.u.'s of vitamin D a day.
Any thoughts on raising my vitamin D levels?
My thoughts on it: I can (a) pray for more sun (b) increase my dose to 14-16 i.u.'s and hope that changes my blood levels (c) switch to high-vitamin cod liver oil, and hope the natural nutrients fix the issue (d) switch to some other recommended brand (e) unknown?
I work a 2nd shift, so my exposure to sun is minimal throughout the week. I live in Seattle, and it rains a lot. I weigh 300lbs (working on losing the extra weight), which I understand can limit the amount of vitamin D I absorb. I currently take 5 of the Costco brand of Vitamin D, which is a fat soluble 2k i.u. pill, which I take with a bit of heavy cream (I'm following the archevore diet). I am also diagnosed with a low thyroid (I take synthroid and cytomel) and am dealing with some metabolic/adrenal issues with my obesity.
