Doctor genius a$$hat diagnose me with Vit D deficiency. Test came back a 10. Gave a RX for 50,000 IU of Ergocalciferol (D2) at one dose per week for 3 months.

Hair loss victim here. So far about 5 days of 1000 of vitamin d small SOFTGELS from walmart, SPRING VALLEY, IT'S NOT LISTED IN THE "Brand product used" list below so I just picked anything. Seems to be doing the trick. I think it's D3 but I'm not sure, threw away the bottle. It looks like male pattern baldness or rather female pattern baldness. ALSO it's diffused thinnin ...

I have been severely Vit D deficient for several years, as well as having Sjogren's Syndrome. Symptoms have included general joint pain, tiredness, depression. We started me on 10k units once per week of Vit D3. By Day 6 I was in severe pain. Day 3 I was barely moving. By Day 5 the pain started to decrease. Day 6 and 7 I was close to normal pain levels. Day 1 I was dreading taking the pill aga ... Show Full Comment
