For the last three years the results of my blood work at the time of my physical show I am deficient on Vitamin D. The first year I wasn't that concerned, the second year I considered seeing an endocrinologist, but didn't. Now that it has happened for the third year I am concerned. My doctor prescribes mega doses of Vitamin D for 15 weeks, taking one tablet a week.
I am 62, healthy individual with definition marks from sun exposure, I suppose you would call it a "farmer's tan" and eat a well rounded diet including milk, salmon, eggs all the foods rich in Vitamin D.
Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated. I am on the verge of dialing for an appointment with an endocrinologist now.
Thanks all -- SueHelen
