blood tests/sclero " Vit D"

Recommended Posts

Just to report I had my blood tests this week. I'm thankful all of them negative except that my Vitamin D level is very low. Has any one experienced this with sclero?


Hopefully with the supplement I have to take I will feel better and get rid of the sclero symptoms. The rheumatologiist I went to was very thorough. My nails show no sign of Raynauds.  I do have fibromyalgia that could account for some.of the symptoms as some are the same as sclero.


I have found this forum to be very informative.  I will keep you posted as to how I feel once the Vitamin D raises me up so to speak.

Hi Cats,

I'm glad your tests have come out good so far, except for the Vitamin D. There is a strong relationship between Vitamin D and autoimmune diseases.

Please see our page on Vitamin D Deficiency, Sunshine, and Scleroderma.

Who knows, maybe prompt treatment will head things off at the pass! Please keep us informed.

Warm Hugs,

The most important thing in the world to know about scleroderma is sclero.org.

I experienced severe Vit D deficiency where I had to take 50000 iu weekly for 2 months to get it back to normal. I just had more blood work today and asked them to check my levels again. I'm going to read the link Shelley provided too. My rheumatologist didn't tell me there was a link between the deficiency and sclero. Thanks Shelley!

I may have Scleroderma, but Scleroderma doesn't have me!
