Vitamin D and Vitamin B12 Deficient?

Saturday, March 12, 2016

Yup--that was what I was told this Tuesday when I went to visit my doctor. What? I asked him--All of a sudden? Well according to him not really but I think he is trying to figure out why I have felt sicker since getting out of the hospital then at any other time of my life. What in the world did they do to me in there? The doctor was about to give me a Vitamin B12 shot when I informed him in no uncertain terms--he would have to catch me first (remember I am still having trouble breathing!). He then smiled--walked out of the room and came back with a Vitamin B12 inhaler which he made sure I did right then and there!! I was told I have to do this once a month? When I'm feeling better I will ask him what is wrong with pill form-or the sublingual form I saw on Puritan's Pride--even if I'm not-I'll be there in a month--maybe I'll do some research on my own.


Which is what I did with Vitamin D.


The doctor told me to get it over the counter and take the 1000 unit once a day. Ok, don't know why all of a sudden I need it--but a Vitamin pill once a day I can handle. I know better then to go to any of the walk in places--the pills they sell are just too large to get down my throat--so I went over to Puritan's Pride (yes, I am an affiliate and I will get a small commission if you purchase after clicking in with any of my links--but I am also a customer!!!) First I typed in Vitamin D-----hum--all that came up was Vitamin D3--what the H---. Then I went to check the pill sizes they have--I love that chart!! Score--they have the size that will go down my throat. BUT--does my Doc want me to take Vitamin D or Vitamin D3? I googled it and it turns out that Vitamin D3 is a lot safer then Vitamin D2 and you really should know what you are getting before you get it. There is A Vitamin D Council and lots of other places. Eye opening if I do say so!! There is a whole lot more to Vitamin D then most of us realize--and sun or lack there of has somewhat to do with it but not all. It turns out that Vitamin D is very important for our bodies!!

Thankfully Puritan's Pride has the strength and the size pill I need--at a really good price. My next stop--Puritan's Pride!

I have to take the vitamin d supplement as well :(. I was wondering why I was so exhausted too!

I take both of these supplements. With living in Washington we don't get much sunshine so the vitamin d is a much needed.

I have upped all my vitamins, but mostly B6, D and C. I take them on top of my prenatals but I plan to continue after pregnancy too. Helps so much when you are always feeling SO tired. - Jeanine

I have to take B-12 as well because of my hypothyroidism. I should probably take vitamin D as well. I do try to get D more naturally with the sun, but here in Florida the sun is brutally hot so I stay indoors more than in the winter. I have never heard of Puritan's Pride brand, so I will have to check that out.

I take vitamin B12 and have done so for a while. It's great to have the option of adding supplements to your diet that help to improve your health.

I suffer from vitamin d deficiency and take vitamin d daily. But in liquid form. Mine vitamin d deficiency revealed a health issue.

That's really great, that they had the right one for you. I used to be a Vegetarian for a few years, and had to supplement with B12.
