Re: vitamin d deficiency

There are known isues with gastric bypass patients and processing of the oily vitamins. I hope your doctor is working with you and you are taking supplement.

I got really sick. he valves in my heart started weakening and they were not pumping - I was in heart failure. Long story short, after multiple trips to ER, about $12,000 worth of tests (thankfully ins), all they found was severe vitamin D deficiency. I took 50,000 units for 8 weeks so far and every week it has improved. Knees are almost well, shortness of breath gone, overall stiffness and muscle pain is better, and chest pain is 10x better.
