Low vitamin D, fatigue, low blood pressure

I have a vitamin D level of 26 and I also have low blood pressure. I am wondering if my low blood pressure is caused by my low vitamin D. I am tired all of the time and experience depression and panic attacks because I am so worried about my health. I appreciate any help on these topics!!

lamassie36: Get your thyroid checked by an endocrinologist. Have him check your hormones at the same time.

Re: Low vitamin D, fatigue, low blood pressure

I had low vitamin D but high blood pressure. I don't think Vitamin D is related to low blood pressure.

How low is low? My mother's is typically about 90/50 or so and she does just fine.

Vitamin D is often seen in conjunction with thyroid disorders, which could also explain your other symptoms. Fatigue and even anxiety are associated with hypothyroidism. Get tested, then post your results here. Most docs and labs use an outdated set of values and under diagnose thyroid disease due to that. I was sick for 9 years before I finally got a doctor to start treating my thyroid, because my old doc was only about using an outdated TSH value instead of updated values and broader tests.
