I got a call from my doctor recently. They had received additional results from my blood test over a month back, and the doc wanted to go over it with me.

When I got my blood drawn, I asked for a vitamin D test. It came back low. Even though I’ve been taking at least one Vitamin D per day (usually two), it came in low. From what the Physician Assistant told me, the bottom end of the “normal” range is 30. Mine was 19.

I didn’t tell her that I’ve been supplementing with D for awhile. Yikes. Damn this office shiftwork.

The doc’s office is calling in a prescription for me for a high dose of D3 to be taken for the next month, then lower doses after that. Then a new blood test in 2 months. I’m going to try to get my butt outside a bit more often as well.
