I have finally gotten the diagnosis for my mystery ailment and I'm encouraging all of you to consider being tested as well. The rheumatologist ran a Vitamin D level which I honestly did not take all that seriously. I'm relatively young, usually healthy and eat a balanced diet. Besides, I am not convinced that vitamins are real things.
Anyway, the office called today with a lot of concern, my level is 7. Less than 10 is seriously deficient and some ugly things can result. My recent symptoms plus a few bonus things I usually just tolerate are likely connected. The doctor has called a three month prescription in and I'll have to be regularly retested. Naturally when I got the news I did a quick internet search and found there is real reason to be concerned about Vitamin D and to take this seriously. I'm thankful that I have not only a diagnosis but a relatively easy treatment and I'm looking forward to feeling better. So! Get tested!
Turns out vitamins might be real things after all.
However, there is no way mitochondria are real.
