So I went to the doctor today to get a pap and to go over my lab results from two weeks ago. Everything was good except my Vitamin D level was an 8 and my thyroid was a little off. My question is about weight loss though. I'm sure a lot of you have vitamin deficiency. Are any of you taking supplements? Did the supplements help with weight loss at all?

Reasons You Should Be Tested for Vitamin D

1. Vitamin D can reduce your risk of the flu and complications
of flu. Vitamin D contributes to lowering the incidence of
infections and inflammation during the fall-winter flu season. The
Canadian government has recommended increased Vitamin D intake as part
of their flu prevention strategy, including prevention of H1N1 Swine
Flu.

2. Vitamin D can reduce your risk of depression. Low
levels of Vitamin D are associated with depression. Sun exposure is
known to be a factor in relieving depression, especially winter
depression also known as seasonal affective disorder.

3. Vitamin D can reduce chronic muscle aching and pain.
Vitamin D helps to normalize blood calcium which is required for tight
shortened muscles to soften, lengthen and relax out of spasm. When
calcium is available to the muscles, menstrual cramps lessen.

4. Vitamin D can reduce your risk of cancer. Low
levels of Vitamin D are associated with increased incidence of many
cancers. Vitamin D normalizes cell to cell communication, impacts
uncontrolled cell growth and allows cells to differentiate into normal
cells with a normal life cycle.

5. Vitamin D can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease,
stroke, heart attack and atherosclerosis.
Vitamin D has been shown to protect the lining of your blood vessels.

6. Vitamin D can reduce your risk of developing Type 1 Diabetes
by 80%. Low levels of Vitamin D are found in diabetics.

7. Vitamin D can reduce your risk of getting autoimmune diseases
like Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis,
Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Lupus. Low levels of Vitamin D
are associated with increased auto- immune attack, breakdown of your
own tissues and loss of normal functions. Vitamin D supplementation has
been shown to reduce the risk of multiple sclerosis by 40%.

8. Vitamin D can reduce your risk of bone fractures, bone loss
and osteoporosis. Low levels of Vitamin D prevent your body
from normal calcium metabolism and normal bone formation. Both men and
women are at increased risk for bone loss and fractures as they age.

my labs were normal, and I only take a multi

but I highly suggest you take a search here http://hcgdietinfo.com/hcgdietforums/forum.php
Half of the people have thyroid problems and had to result to the hcg diet 

i'm NOT suggesting you do the diet or that you even need it, but they do have a lot of conversations about vitamins they take such as B12 and Vit D, as well as meds like Armour


and get outside more for some natural Vit D

I have the exact same problems. But I was born with a vitamin D deficiency. My least level was like 7.....I think the norm is 35. My doc is a natural meds pusher so the vitamin D supplements actually came from her line.....1000 mg if I recall currently. The thyroid pills helped at first. Then the problems came back. So far no weight loss but no more massive gains either. I may need a bigger dose. But you will definitely feel of you don't grey on top of it. And make sure you don't take the thyroid pills with the vitamin supplements.....you must have at least four hours between the meds dosages.

I take 2000 I.U of vitamin D and 500  mg of vitamin C every day.

Havent gotten the flu since i started taking them..But the reason i started taking them was because i had this stupid plantar wart..that would not go away on my foot..my doctor suggested taking vitamins to make my immune system stronger...the wart went away after couple of weeks after having it for almost a year. Annoying crap

I take 8-16K of Vit D a day.

A 5K D pill & a Calcium pill with 3K of D in the AM.

If I feel like it/remember, I take em both at night too.

eta: If you wanna lose some weight, turn your heat off and/or open your bedroom window a bit at night. Shivering burns hella calories. When the blizzard hit at Christmas and we were without power for 3 days, I lost 10 pounds. It was 48 degrees in this mug. Ouch
