The perinatologist's office just called me because my labs from yesterday came back and showed I have a vitamin d deficiency. This is definitely the first i've heard of it... I need to just get some over the counter Vit D supplements.
She said low vit d during pregnancy can cause asthma, diabetes, and rickets for the baby (at some point in their life)- and for me can cause high blood sugar.
Anyone else have low vitamin d?

I've heard this is common with PCOS (when I used to frequent the TTC with PCOS board) but is usually treated with prescription strength supplements. I asked to be tested a few years ago but my family doctor didn't see the need. I know that I have to have some other labs when I go to my next appointment so I think I will ask my OB about it. Hopefully it won't be a big deal for you.
I'm from MN, and pretty much everyone are here is low in D. Glad you caught it! When I was diagnosed, I went to the Dr because I thought I had arthritis or lupus or something terrible like that, within one week of supplements I felt 100% better. I've been taking between 2000 and 10000 since, depending on the season.
I am surprised my doc didnt test. I also have PCOS and didnt know there was a connection.. Also, I live in the rainiest place in the country... It rains here in WA 300 days of the year! I wouldn't be surprised if I am vitamin d deficient. I think I will just start checking food labels and find things high in it to make sure.
