riffleshell Posted February 20, 2014 Report Share Posted February 20, 2014 Searching through the archives of the forum, it seems that many, many of you have reported that Vitamin D causes issues/backsliding for your kids. Tell me about your experiences: Did anyone stick with it and eventually see a good result? Did ramping up the dosage slowly help? Did anyone have a good experience from the get-go? Was there a combination of vitamins that worked to mellow the crazy? Did you find another way to get your child's levels up? Backstory: My kid came down with PANDAS in October of 2013 and is mostly recovering. (I wrote about his story a bit here.) We recently added Vayarin to his regimen of fish oil, 5HTP, vitamin c and probiotics. Adding Vayarin seemed to make a HUGE difference. The past two weeks or so have been really great--normal, even. His doctor recently tested his vitamin D levels and said they were low. (28 on a scale of 33-100, but many folks will say you are really shooting for around 50.) He recommended we supplement with 1,000 IU a day but...oh my. This has certainly put an end to the recent good run we were having. Thoughts how on I can up his Vitamin D levels without ruining our family's quality of life? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
