    DrEttinger Choice, the only thing we control

    6mg's of Medrol = 30mg's of hydrocortisone and 10mg's = 50mg's HC. That is an acute dose for 7 days only and would need to be tapered once the p[atient with sepsis is out of the woods. If already on 6mg's, long-term, I doub't the benefit would be the same. Best to get to the cause, which could be found with enough testing and a good biochemist.

    Your Doctor is Wrong About Bone Density — Here's Why
    Women's Health Network
    Published on Apr 5, 2019
    In this video, Dr. Brown explains why the conventional bone density test, known as the DXA Bone Density Test (or DEXA Bone Density Test) fails to accurately depict bone health and is an unreliable predictor of bone fracture risk and osteoporosis. Dr. Brown describes the DEXA Scan Bone Density Test compared to the NTx Bone Density Test, which tests N-Telopeptide activity to measure bone resorption rate. Dr. Brown explains the many benefits of the NTx Bone Scan, including its value as a reliable tool to test for osteoporosis, as it can identify excessive bone loss in the early stages, making osteoporosis treatment more effective. The NTx Bone Test is inexpensive and non-invasive, making it easier to perform more frequently than the DEXA bone density test, providing increased insight into the true state of bone health and increasing chances of an accurate osteoporosis or osteopenia diagnosis. The NTx Test also correctly assesses the effectiveness of osteoporosis treatment and therapies, which may include a specific osteoporosis diet, and natural treatment for osteoporosis to prevent bone fracture. Finally, Dr. Brown offers proven remedies for healing and building bone, reducing osteoporosis fracture risk, and improving your overall health.

    Hi JanSz, The first time I checked my Vitamin D level was about 8 or 9 years ago. My level came in at 27 ng/mL. I started taking a Vitamin D supplement of 1000 IU daily, and after about a year I moved up to 5000 IU's. The highest I've seen my levels since I started supplementing was at 50 ng/mL about 2 years ago. I've had it checked once a year since my first blood test. Most of the time my levels were in the 40's. In the past I was always taking the vitamin D up to the day before my blood draw, but this last time, I stopped taking the vitamin D about 3 days before the blood draw and my D levels came back at 31 ng/mL. About a week ago I stopped taking the vitamin D supplement and started getting noon time sun, about 12 to 15 minutes daily to try and raise my levels naturally. Do you think my body will begin to produce vitamin D after supplementing for years?

    This is from my DNA Variant Report:
    (I have level 1 variant for this).

    The VDR Taq variant may reduce Vitamin D in the body. Therefore, vitamin D supplementation may be needed with this variant. Speak to your health care provider about measuring Vitamin D levels, and the appropriate supplementation if needed.

    Do you think that because of this the sun exposure won't be enough?

    In regards to my vitamin D deficiency, before I started taking the supplement, my eyes were always gritty, dry and inflamed. After about two months after starting the supplementation of the D Vitamin this issue went away. An acquaintance of mine told me he had dry eye and was taking Restasis eye drops which cost him around $800. After I suggested he check his D levels he found out that he was deficient. He started the Vitamin D supplementation and in two weeks he dry eye issue was gone and stopped using the Restasis. I also mentioned this to my eye doctor but she didn't even seem to care.
