As i posted the other day, my levels are low normal, including my vitamin D
Testosterone, total 389 ng/dl (range 264-916)
%Free 2.2% (1.5-3.2)
Testosterone, Free 86 pg/ml (52-280)
Estradiol <5 pg/mL (7.6-42.6)
Prolactin 12.4 (4-15.2)
Vitamin D 25.9 (30-100)
Took some Thorne Vitamin D 5000iu today and feel a bit worse (foggy). Will give it a couple days though to see if that calms down and is not just an anxiety reaction but i tend to be very sensitive to supplements. don’t want to go down the process of adding magnesium and k2 to work with the vitamin D as i have gone through enough chemistry projects before.
Is 25 vitamin D level even that low where my testosterone/estrogen can be helped? it is technically an inefficiency and not a deficiency. i have been told that Vitamin D is really only low when down in the 10s.
my endocrinologist was ready to prescribe Clomid or Testosterone if he could (he works in hospital setting so said i’d have to go to a clinic for testosterone but gave a wink wink approval of it) but i pushed for the Vitamin D first. Thanks.
