Thank you.
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

Vitamin D is anti-allergic. Dr. Theoharides prescribes this to his patients with mast cell activation disorders for its anti-allergic properties even when their Vit D level is normal.

Metabolism of vitamin D and the Vitamin D Receptor

I wonder what the Vitamin D metabolite ratio's are in POIS patients.

"...vitamine D deficiency by laboratoria criteria is often present in MCAS [192], though often with no clear correlation to clinical effects..."

Maybe I should check my Vitamin D? I probably don't get enough in winter since I live up north and I've noticed some SAD symptoms. Not sure if thats connected though.

Perhaps restoring released mediators takes up vitamin D. Or mast cell activity inflames the gastrointestinal tract impairing vit D uptake.

Be careful with Vitamin D you don't become very deficient in magnesium. Most people are deficient already but large doses of Vitamin D will make it worse. Magnesium deficiency is a serious mast cell trigger.

What causes vitamin D deficiency?

You can become deficient in vitamin D for different reasons:

You don't get enough vitamin D in your diet
You don't absorb enough vitamin D from food (a malabsorption problem)
You don't get enough exposure to sunlight.
Your liver or kidneys cannot convert vitamin D to its active form in the body.
You take medicines that interfere with your body's ability to convert or absorb vitamin D

Who is at risk of vitamin D deficiency?

Some people are at higher risk of vitamin D deficiency:

Breastfed infants, because human milk is a poor source of vitamin D. If you are breastfeeding, give your infant a supplement of 400 IU of vitamin D every day.
Older adults, because your skin doesn't make vitamin D when exposed to sunlight as efficiently as when you were young, and your kidneys are less able to convert vitamin D to its active form.
People with dark skin, which has less ability to produce vitamin D from the sun.
People with disorders such as Crohn's disease or celiac disease who don't handle fat properly, because vitamin D needs fat to be absorbed.
People who have obesity, because their body fat binds to some vitamin D and prevents it from getting into the blood.
People who have had gastric bypass surgery
People with osteoporosis
People with chronic kidney or liver disease.
People with hyperparathyroidism (too much of a hormone that controls the body's calcium level)
People with sarcoidosis, tuberculosis, histoplasmosis, or other granulomatous disease (disease with granulomas, collections of cells caused by chronic inflammation)
People with some lymphomas, a type of cancer.
People who take medicines that affect vitamin D metabolism, such as cholestyramine (a cholesterol drug), anti-seizure drugs, glucocorticoids, antifungal drugs, and HIV/AIDS medicines.

I take a vitamin D3 supplement (1000 IUs), originally suggested by a Dr, and it does wonders for my mood and strength... of all things. It works almost immediately (within 24 hours) and is usually safe, cheap, and easy to try. Of course consult a Dr though.
