Fat tissue can tie up Vitamin D, rendering many people to be deficient. Have any of you found that your post op blood work was showing higher levels of Vitamin D? Did getting rid of fat help your body utilize Vit D better?

Oh, I so hope this happens for me. I've been battling low Vitamin D for a year and a half with little to no results.

Me too, have to take extra Vitamin D, Iron , and Calcium although not all at the same moment. And the Magnesium fairy is waving her little hand to remind she's there also. Did you know you can't take Calcium and Magnesium at the same time? They are both Positive ions and head for the same receptor. Just another thing to schedule 2 hours apart. I feel like I'm selecting from a Chinese menu, 1 from Column A, 2 from Column B and bring me this one in Column C for dessert!

and don't take Iron and Vit D together. The iron binds up the Vit D. I take my multi/biotin/B-12 with breakfast/lunch and then the calcium/D with dinner.

I haven't had any bloodwork done post-op yet, but I do take Vit D every day

I've been on a prescription Vit D for going on 2 years and it's still almost nonexistent...when I first had it checked it was 7 and my last check a few weeks back was 13 :unsure:
