In Episode #36 of Thyroid Answers Podcast, Dr. Eric Balcavage and Dr. Erica Riggleman discuss vitamin D supplementation.
Topics discussed include:
How to determine if you are vitamin D deficient
Why you must test more than 25OHD
The impact of elevated 1,25OHD
Why People who have chronically low Vitamin D are often not vitamin D deficient
Why high dose vitamin supplementation may make your health worse
and lots more
There is quite a bit of information in this podcast. It is important to understand that most doctors are not running appropriate testing, interpreting vitamin d testing correctly or providing appropriate therapy when it comes to vitamin D. Even those in functional medicine suggesting that high dose vitamin d will lower antibodies are not correctly understanding vitamin d physiology.
This podcast is critical if you struggle with low vitamin D, chronic infections, mast cell activation, hypothyroidism, or autoimmunity.
