These new Drs thought it was stress and put me on pills to reduce my stress while I burned to death! The new GI was angry I was bothering her as she took my new intake information. By now I was losing hope and resigned to accepting whatever I was told by them. The GI pounded the keys and interrupted me to tell me “…I’ve never heard of such a thing constantly! …” when I told her my symtoms.
Q: I am vitamin D deficient. What dosage of vitamin D should I take on a daily basis?
Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. Calcium can affect the heart. Digoxin (Lanoxin) is used to help your heart beat stronger. Taking vitamin D along with digoxin (Lanoxin) might increase the effects of digoxin (Lanoxin) and lead to an irregular heartbeat.
If the person is being tested for such things, there is most likely a symptomatic reason for the testing to begin with, which indicates things can degenerate to the ‘next level’ readily. I began taking 2000 IU daily of D3 (vegan formula) in April 2018 after a blood test showed a low reading (don’t know the number). Within 30 days I started having occasional heartburn, never before an issue with me.
He said he also he had to do a biopsy on my severely burned throat. I told him I wasn’t sure I could tolerate the surgery or the biopsy because the throat pain was so severe and I couldn’t tolerate any medication, as it caused the burned to become more severe even. I demanded a new GI that had a bed side manner also. The newer GI couldn’t do anyhing for me but she did say “we believe you now”. They all told me there was no such thing as LPR.
Speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you are concerned. Antacids, like calcium carbonate (Tums), sodium bicarbonate, Maalox and Milk of Magnesia, relieve indigestion and heartburn by neutralising the acid in your stomach. They give quick relief that lasts for a few hours. They’re ideal for occasional bouts of stomach acid symptoms.
The National Osteoporosis Foundation recommends vitamin D 400 IU to 800 IU daily for adults under age 50, and 800 IU to 1000 IU daily for older adults. Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. Calcium can affect the heart.
People who have pernicious anemia also may be at higher risk for weakened bone strength and stomach cancer. Your GP will ask you to return two to four weeks after you’ve started taking iron supplements to check how well you’ve responded to the treatment. You’ll have a blood test to check your haemoglobin levels. Treatment for iron deficiency anaemia usually involves taking iron supplements and changing your diet to increase your iron levels, as well as treating the underlying cause. If your GP thinks your anaemia may be the result of a vitamin B12 and folate deficiency, the levels of these substances may be tested.
- I was in so much pain and so ashamed that I had something no one could figure it out.
- This supplement should cause fewer side effects because it contains a less concentrated dose of iron.
- The GI made a call and said, “would you check one for me?
- Your GP will ask you to return two to four weeks after you’ve started taking iron supplements to check how well you’ve responded to the treatment.
- In recent years, research has associated low blood levels of the vitamin with higher risks of everything from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer to mood disorders and dementia.
- What a nightmare!
If your pernicious anemia is caused by something other than a lack of intrinsic factor, you may get treatment for the cause (if a cause can be found). For example, your doctor may prescribe medicines to treat a condition that prevents your body from absorbing vitamin B12.
I also showed very low vitamin D levels in a blood test my doctor ordered. She had me take 50, a week 000 IU’s once. This was a prescription vitmin D.
Put simply, Magnesium facilitates Calcium and Vitamin D production. It is used in over 300 intra-cellular processes within our body, most of which promote relaxation. Unfortunately, many of us are not meeting our daily Magnesium requirement. In part, this is due to the erosion of our topsoil and the depletion of minerals in the soil in which our food is grown. This elegant mechanism, when working well, spares us from dipping into our Calcium reserves within our bones.
I took only one pill of vitamin D3 1000iu after lunch, and my heartburn is worse a day after. I hope it will soon be under control again. Now that spring is here, you might also want to get 15 or 20 minutes a day of sun exposure. We are sending you our Guide to Vitamin D Deficiency for more details on the pros and cons of this essential nutrient.
If you have any questions about the drugs you are taking, check with your doctor, pharmacist or nurse. One of the best ways to get your daily dose of vitamin D is by being outdoors. Your doctor may decide that you need more than the recommended daily amount of vitamin D. Talk to your physician to determine your optimal dose.
