Vitamin D Deficiency/Malabsorption Issues
I'm not completely sure where the best place to ask this question is, but I'm going to start here.
have been deficient in Vitamin D since at least December (first time I
was tested), and with high levels of prescription Vitamin D, my numbers
are still low 6 months later. My Dr. said I have malabsorption of Vitamin D. He has no clue what might be causing this. He just wants me to keep taking Vitamin D and see what happens in three months.
I've done some research online and some places say that Vitamin D deficiency can affect your fertility. My Dr. (an endocrinologist) had never heard of this and said he will research it (when/if he will get back to me who knows...).
This is our 11th cycle of trying post lost so we aren't being treated for infertility at this time, but I am wondering if this might be a reason we aren't getting pregnant. If we don't get pg this cycle or next, I am suppose to follow up with my ob/gyn for testing for myself and my DH (I saw her in March and she didn't want to do anything until end of summer). She is very hesitant to even run tests as she can't see a reason we aren't get pg (I can see via temps that I am ovulating regularly, we've been able to get pg, etc)
Has anyone had a deficiency or malabsorption problem and be able to resolve it and see an affect on getting pregnant or had a Dr who discussed this at all?
Sorry this is so long - any advice would be appreciated. TIA!
