Hypothyroidism n Vit D


I have hypothyroidism since more than 3 years and Vitamin D insufficiency since the same time. I have been regularly taking my medicines but I can see no improvement. I visit docs regularly. My bodyache has increased so much in last few months that I can't even cook food, take painless bath, or even do yoga.

Our body creates most of our vitamin D from direct sunlight on our skin.
Short daily periods of sun exposure without sunscreen during the summer months (April to October) are enough for most people to make enough vitamin D. Evidence suggests that the most effective time of day for vitamin D production is between 11am and 3pm.

In most patients, fortunately, thyroid hormone treatment reverses the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism. 
Undertreatment of hypothyroidism leads to disease progression, with gradual worsening of symptoms and further metabolic derangements.
