Has anyone heard of a vitamin d deficiency a possible cause in multiple miscarriages? I've been severly vitamin d deficient for almost 4 years. I wasn't with my son and had no issues staying pregnant. But I was looking up some things and saw where vit d could help with recurrent mc.

If you are taking that much Vitamin D and still deficient then something is wrong with your body absorbing it. Are you getting injections or pill?

and I dont know if it would cause MC, however the body is always wanting to make itself even and "perfect" so it's constantly working, so if you are severely deficient and your body is always working really hard to make sure you have enough of something the first thing it's going to stop working properly is reproduction because the last thing a stressed body needs is to grow another body.

I'd ask and research about how the body absorbs vit D.

also...are your cycles regular, are you ovulating? any other health concerncs?

I really hope your doctors can figure it out.  I live in the desert, so I have to take 5,000 units vit d daily to keep my levels normal since I wear sunscreen nearly every day and don't get enough from the sun ...well, that I'm very fair, so 10-15 minutes of the sun and I'm burnt lol.  But my pill takes care of it. I agree with the other poster that you should start researching it and asking the doctors because, to me, it does sound like something is really off here. GL!

My cycles are always regular and I ovulate on time. It's just staying pregnant I'm having issues with. I'm taking it orally. As far as I know there isn't an injection.

I have never heard of that before.  Maybe ask your doctor about it?  Good luck to you.

oh yes.... there are injections and intraveinous vitamins. My physiology instructor had gastric bypass surgery, they use to cut out a portion of your small intestine, which is responsible for absorbing 90% of vitamins, minerals and water and so she has to get intraveinous vitamins couple times a month.

If you're into natural healing a lot of naturopaths are accepting insurance these days.

I have heard of this before, my husbands co worker, and based on what I've learned about myself, and about the human body I seriously think this is an absorption issue. I would suggest asking about another method of getting the vitamin into your body, also Vit D is a fat soluble vitamin so it needs lipids to absorb, good healthy fats in your diet can help with that.

Hmm. Ill have to look into it. I know my neuro is all about newer things. I was there a week ago and he said there's a new substitute for steroid infusions as well that stimulates your body to do it itself instead of using iv steroids. But I'll definitely look into the vit d injections. Thanks! My levels haven't been in the normal range for a couple years, even with taking as much as I do. The highest it's been is 32. Lol. I believe he said is was on the very low side of normal.
