Hey everyone

I got some labs run from an online site (love that we can do this in 2012) and my D level and Magnesium levels came back just within normal range.

In regards to my vitamin D intake: I had just spent a week outside/was bronzed (I also spend at least 10 min/day in direct sunlight in California sun), supplement with 2,000mg of D3 daily for at least a year and used to supplement with 5,000mg/day for about 4 months.

Magnesium intake: I take 100-150% of my daily magnesium in pill form and eat kale shakes 4-5/week for over a month now and historically eat a lot of greens.

What could be causing these low levels despite healthy intake? I have what is probably fibromyalgia and have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and ADD. How do these come into play?

For a bonus I got my thyroid checked too and it seems fine but thought Id post results as PH are expert sleuths!!

My results are in () Range is next to it

Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy (38.8) 30.0-100.0 ng/mL
