Re: Optimal Vitamin D levels for LPR patients?
I have LPR, have had it since last spring, have taken Vit D supplements for many years so decided to see what my levels were. My test showed a level of 137 , way above normal, of course it was at the end of summer , we have a pool so I also get lots of sun. Hasn't helped my LPR. My B12 levels have been tested every year for many years and I am consistently above the norm there as well.
My GI doc says the LPR is likely due to the muscle that binds the sphincter closed has loosened somewhat with age allowing some gastric fluid to mix with the air in my esophagus. Like a lot of things related to the body it just doesn't work as well as when I was younger. I am mid 50's.
