BuffyBear's Journal, 06 January 2016

Second journal of the day: Got a call from my doctors office. My vitamin D level is very low - a 17 (have yet to look up what that means). They are calling in a prescription for Vitamin D.

So maybe now I know why I am so tired all the time.

Egg yolk, salmon, and butterfat are good sources of vitamin D. Could be related to the fatigue. Hope you get to feeling more energetic :)

I take 50,000 units of Vitamin D twice a week. It really constipates you, but once it gets in your system your energy level should come back!

We used to get that vitamin D just from being outside, didn't we? We got dirt all over us and we ran and played as children. Now we are so afraid of sun rays we block the sun. We need that sunshine. I think as we get older we all need to take supplements for D. Thanks for bringing that up, too. My husband was told to take D supplements. We forgot.

Mine was 11...30 is a low normal. It will also make you lose your hair! I thought I was going bald, and I was, but it was because of my low Vit D levels!! Keep taking your Vit D and try to get some sun!! I live in Rhode Island, not much sun here!!

Can't thank you guys enough for your comments. Guess working all those 10 hour days inside a dark building is taking its toll. Going to have a long talk with my boss!
