Hi, Im a 28 year old woman whos has one 4 year old son. i recently went to a general practitioner for a checkup, basically because i havnt been feeling like a healthy person for quite a while..my energy is low most of the time, constantly feeling tired and weak. doctors always run CBC on me because they think im anemic, but they find my blood levels just fine, so i finally told this doctor to check my hormones, thyroid, folic cid, and vitamin D levels because i was just tired of hearing that i'm fine. I started thinking that it was all in my head, and my husband started to think im mental because doctors kept saying i was fine! so finally this GP said my vitamin D is low, but it's normal because im living in kuwait! i thought it was minor at first, but when i got home and looked at it, the test said that my result is less than 10 mno/L and the normal range is between 50-175 mno/L! in my visit he wrote vitamin D on the prescription paper, but no brand name of the supplement, not even mentioned how much i should take, that too he told me to ask someone to bring it for me from another country cuz it wasnt available in kuwait! so now im confused, i dont know what to do, and i dont want to go back to that doctor, but i dont know what kind of doctor to see inorder to give me exactly the thing i need...any advice would be appreciated. some people advised me to take cod liver oil, but would that be enough for my case?
