Question about Vit-D as related to Magnesium
Question about Vit-D as related to Magnesium…I am entirely new so please forgive if this is obvious to everyone else. From reading the posts I am getting the idea that supplementing Vit-D will have a negative impact on your Magnesium. Is that correct?
Here is why I ask… The first time I met with my ND we were discussing symptoms and she immediately suspected a magnesium deficiency. Suggested I take Mag- glycinate or malate, which ever I could find. I took Mag- malate and started doing epsom salt soaks and immediately felt better. It was amazing how much better I felt.
At that time she ordered a bunch of blood tests, one of which was the Vit-D. Turned out I was VERY low. She put me on 10,000 units a day, expecting to drop to 2,000 units within a month. With-in days I went back to feeling like crap.
That was 6 months ago, I am still on 10,000 units a day. The magnesium I take does nothing for me. I feel worse than ever.
Also want to point out that during this time I had surgery to have half of my thyroid removed, and a lot of stress afterwards from the hormones being unbalanced.
