There's a number of posts here about vitamin d3 for GERD/LPR, but they have me a bit confused. I currently take a 1000IU tablet every day - it's the highest I can buy locally, but I can't afford to import any higher from american websites on my wages! - and I have a lot of vitamin d3 foods all week around, mostly consisting of fish like salmon and cod, and occasionally eggs and cheese. It's hard for me to get sunlight on me, as my job takes place indoors, but I have very pale skin and burn easily under the right conditions. After 6 months of this regime though, I have yet to see an improvement in my symptoms, so I've organised a blood test to get an estimate of my d3 level changes throughout these months.
In the meantime, am I doing all I possibly can to increase my vitamin d3? I'm trying to persue all possible angles before surgery, not just stress and diet. Since I've worn out my options on both of those fronts, this is my last resort before the manometry/ph study/surgery options get pushed to the front.
