Does anyone else suffer from low vitamin d? My level is 13.3 so the endo put me on vitamin d3 2000 units a day. Well I decided to double the dose because it says pregnant woman should at least get 4000 units. Anyone else have this problem

I have always been vitamin d deficient but they never tested me for it here so I take it anyway.

I had my endo test because my joints started hurting last week and I didn't know if my thyroid levels were off or what. I know its a pain

I've been deficient for the last 4 years. As soon as I get it up, it goes right back down. I take 5,000iu per day.

About 2 years ago I was told my vit D was low. I got it up by taking OTC vit d and I now spend 20 min sometimes more in the sun. Sun exposure works better than pills. My levels are really good now.
