VIT D injection?

Hi,

Not been here for quite sometime. Hope everyone is as well as can be.

Just a quick question, had a blood test for my vit d levels. I have now had a call to say i need to go to GP’s next week for a vit d injection. My question is, would it possible to ask for tablets instead of injection? its just that, im already on 3 monthly vitb12 injections, so would really prefer supplements as opposed to another injection, Anyone else had a similar situation ?

hi ellie

i have monthly B12 injections but would love to get vit D injections too!

it gets into your system much more quickly.

i’m sure that your gp would agree with supplements if you absolutely refuse the injection.

Sounds as if your vitd3 level is pretty low - so go along with the injections as a ‘loading’ dose - then you can maintain the levels with the vitd3 softgel capsules. l get mine from amazon - Healthy Origins 360 gels for about £15. So a years supply. l use the 10,000ius ones and get my levels tested at CityAssay Labs /Birmingham. lt is a postal service - just a simple blood spot test.
