B12 and D trending up - requesting dosing help

My vitamin D, after two rounds of megadosing in different ways, is now up to 58 ng/ml, which is much closer to where I want to be - but still not quite there yet.

I will probably do another megadose after I let my body settle out from the steroids I've just been on a bit. So my first method was to take a 400,000 IU dose followed by 10,000 IU daily supplementation, which raised ...

NAD+ for mitochondria

I ran across a supplement the other day that contains nicotinamide riboside which goes by the trade name of Niagen. It's supposed to help bump up mitochondrial activity by increasing NAD+ levels. Could this be the missing link for reactivating mitochondria in MS and possibly slowing or preventing neurodegeneration?

Note that Dr. Ben Lynch also sells a NADH supplement.

Can B12 deficiency cause brain lesions?

Reposting from my personal "introductions" thread, to get more eyeballs.

All right, I have my B12 result, and today I had a follow up appointment with my neuro to go over results of my newest (with contrast) MRIs. My brain MRI has a couple of lesions, including the "Dawson's fingers" he said is characteristic of MS. (This is in addition to other lesions on my cspine and tspine). My spinal tap results aren't back yet ...

Supplements while awaiting bloodwork?

Hello,

I'm brand new. Have had MRI suspect for MS but awaiting bloodwork to rule out other causes.

My question is - are any supplements OK to start on now, without fear of skewing my baseline bloodwork in terms of potential deficiencies that could mimic MS? I thought maybe fish oil might be OK to start.

Thanks in advance.
