Re: No one knows what's wrong with me.

hi again

sounds like you have some great info.

q re vit d. can you quantify normal? was the older low result in say, 30s range, is it now approaching optimal ie the 50-60 ng/ml ballpark?

i have to run and take care of something but i will be back soon to respond to your other points :)
