Default Lab Readings are Questionable (Vit D)

I've been keeping copies of labs for years. Vit D is what I'm looking at right now. Last Nov 2016, my 25 hydroxy came in at 42 on a range of 30-100 and remarks said Optimal.

I don't think that is Optimal for me. This to me is low end of range.

2014 my labs came in at 49, same range. Same comment.

Back in late 2006 when I came up so deficient, 16 as I recall. I worked hard to bring that up and over a year or more got to 80 and remember feeling so good.

Then in 2010, had hip replacement and had read that Vit D levels can drop with surgery and sure enough that 80 became 40. So again working to get that level up and it's being stubborn and I even take the K2 that is said to be for best absorption.

Maybe one of these days soon I'll take 40-50K of D3 and not take any for the rest of the week. Maybe my system needs a boost.

Just my thoughts for me and maybe others need to be aware too. Spend days at the beach and those Vit D numbers will be great.

As always do your research and talk to docs if need be.
OA onset at 18, now 79. Fibro onset at 61, Hip Replacement "mess" 72 (nerve damage, IT band damage, shorter leg). Otherwise, pretty good health.

Most important supplement: grape seed extract
