Improvement with Vitamin D Supplements
Dear NEA Scratch Pad:
Since my recent diagnosis of vitamin D deficiency and subsequent therapy with supplements, my eczema flares have disappeared and my rash is clearing! My diagnosis was made in March and coincided with your article “Vitamin D: Hype or Healer?” by Peter A. Lio, MD, published in the first quarter 2011 issue of The Advocate, I was skeptical! But now, with vitamin D supplements of 4000 per day and my health improving, I have hope for the first time in my life. I feel better now than I have felt in over 30 years. I am 69 years old and have had eczema my whole life. I live in a sunny climate, in Texas, and have had a lifetime of exposure to the sun. Thanks for continuing to inform for the sake of people like me, who have suffered all their life with this disease.
