If you follow my Instagram page, you know by now that my lab blood work came back with my confirmed suspicion of Vitamin D deficiency as well as lower adrenal function and anemia. Essentially, this is the reason I’ve been feeling like I’m dragging every where I go. Because some of my blood work and follow-up answers showed hormonal implications (i.e. longer and heavier periods), I was prescribed progesterone. My Vitamin D implications have me taking 10000 IU for a month and then 5000 units daily thereafter. Because of the cognitive and memory issues associated with the deficiency and also my Hashimoto’s, I have been recommended pregnolsone (SP) to aid in that.
Now, I’ve been at home, at work, everywhere doing as much research as I can about the impacts of Vitamin D deficiency on fertility. I stumbled across several articles that confirm that Vitamin D can has as much as a 30 to 50 percent risk increase in fertility issues and/or miscarriage! Wow!
Hopefully, the Vitamin D increase will work and S. and I will understand what the disconnect has been in our bodies.
We’ll keep you in the loop! Love you!
