It was my vitamin D levels

Monday, April 02, 2012

So turns out the blood work I had done revealed that my vitamin D levels are very low. So I'm on supplements to bring it back up. Who knew? I had no idea that vitamin D can affect weight issues, but apparently it's quite common for that to coincide with an inability to lose weight.

It's coming off again, but still super slow. As long as it keeps coming off, that's ok by me.

    I have a massage client who had a similar experience with Vitamin D, and she said she lost weight almost immediately after starting a supplement. As the weather warms up and we have more sunny days, do you think you'll be able to stop taking yours?

    This is interesting. I had no idea Vitamin D could affect your ability to lose weight. I had a bunch of blood work done at the beginning of my pregnancy (nearly two years ago) and my vitamin D levels were extremely low at that point. I took Vitamin D for a few months in my pregnancy because low levels can lead to a higher risk of miscarriage, but I haven't taken anyway for awhile. I've been trying to get outside and get some sun now that it's getting warmer, but maybe I should talk to my doctor about taking a supplement again. Thanks for posting this. It gave me an idea of something else to consider.

    I was also told that my Vitamin D levels were very low but I thought it was just another one of those things to get you to take supplements. My Dr. wanted me to go on very high levels of Vitamin D for a while via a prescription? I was very leary about it so I did not do it. I am also struggling with the weight coming off so Slow. Wonder if I need to re-check this??
