yea that d3 does sound really good actually. assuming that that is in US units and translates into about 140nmol/L!
your b12 sounds like it's kind of at the cutoff and it could go higher. refresh my memory, what units is that in?
the ferritin does sound low, and if your zinc is at the right level it can help regulate iron properly.
i think i am more fortunate with tests because i just tell my family doc what i want done, and i get the results by fax.
keep us posted as to how things pan out :) and you are welcome :D

Pager-
I'm just this thread, and the B12 issue is one I have. With the optic neuritis, I lost a lot of color and contrast sense ( lost even before the ON, but is related). No eye dr could give me an explanation.

Then After surgery, due to the anesthesia, lost all color--took many weeks to get it somewhat normal, used B12 shots, Zn and B6.

Again, years later, endoscopy--gastric atrophy-BUT acc to Dr, not in area where B12 absorbed.

Then, throwing all Dr info to the wind, got my osteopath to let me give myself B12 shots daily--after 1 month, could see things have never seen in my life, including colors and depth etc. (I now use injectible Methyllcobalamin form)
AND more energy (a major problem with me is total exhaustion no matter what).
My B12 levels are over 2000 (they don't record above that).

But super dosing on B12 is one of major helps for me. Also think clearer, better skin tone.

Update

Thanks for getting me to update this thread. I started monthly B12 injections in October after being diagnosed with autoimmune gastritis. There was some atrophy observed in the endoscopy so my doctor ordered a full celiac panel, but I haven't gotten the results of that. With the shorter days and less opportunity to get outside, I have increased my D3 IUs.

Also, I recently stopped Copaxone due to hives. I am supposed to restart, and will after the. holidays

Even though I have "mild MS", I continue to struggle to deal with my physical symptoms and overall feeling of just not feeling too great. Many of my friends just don't get it and tell me I look so good. (So sick of that!!)

It is important for all of us to remember to keep our stress down during the busy holiday season. I am working to keep it simple and just do the best that I can do.
