"I'm surprised your doc gave you D2 and not D3.....Anyway, I've never been depressed, but my D level done by the OH25 method was only 18, and I'd heard of others who were taking 5,000 units per day, so this is what I took.  A…"

How much Vit D from Fish and Fermented Cod Liver Oil

I recently had some blood work done in part of my search to discover the nutritional root to my depression.  Evidently my Vit D was quite low.  My general practitioner said it was 19, but I have no idea what that unit is.  She perscribed me 1.25 mg of D2.  However, just before that blood test (4 days before) I started taking high doses of EPA (4 g/day), which I still take, and now I'm also taking 1.5 g of Fermented Cod Liver Oil each day.  I know both of these contain Vit D (along with A) but…See More

"I just wanted to bump this in case anyone out there has any suggestions for me.    Also, his iron has been low in the past, but it hasn't checked for almost a year.  Could this be part of what's causing the dark circles?"

Dark circles under eyes?

My almost 3 year old son is on a pretty limited diet due to allergies (wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, cod fish, peanuts and some random vegetables).  I have also found he doesn't do well (behaviorally) when he consumes corn, and carrots often seem to cause digestive problems. Lately I've noticed he's developing dark-ish circles under his eyes.  I know this is a sign of nutrient malabsorbtion, but I'm not sure which nutrient, or how to fix this. Can someone point me in the right direction. Thanks, AbbySee More
