During my last checkup, my bloodwork was great with one exception, it showed I was very low on Vitamin D. I didn't really understand how it got so low since it was end of summer and I live near the water. I swim laps several times a week each summer. How could I not have vitamin D? Reluctantly, I began taking vitamin D supplements. *For the record, I do not believe in supplementation as a way of life. I am not a health professional, this is just my viewpoint.
Before adding the supplements my vitamin D was 30, (good range is 30-100), 29 would have been deficient. Today my bloodwork showed my vitamin D level 123, far too high. Too much Vitamin D can cause bodies to absorb too much calcium which can lead to heart problems. Soooo, I'm going to take the supplement in the winter months. The rest of the year, I will get my vitamin D via my good friend Mr. Sun 🌞
