Vitamin D3

My story. I’m 42 and have had psoriasis since I was 5 after getting my ears pierced. Suffered in my scalp torso and in ears. It would worsen during pregnancy and after. I eat fairly healthy and am thin. I got to the point I figured there was nothing else to do but live (suffer) with it the rest of my life. But wait things began to unexpectedly change this year 2021. In January I had blood work done revealing low D levels so I started two things in January: Began taking a D3 supplement and removed gluten. Things got worse with flares and spots began to expand and connect with each other. Also red and itchy.l for about 8 months. Then when things hit a peak it miraculously began clearing somewhat slow and then rapidly. It’s amazing my belly has about 5% left and a huge lesson on back is lightening and fadding. I think it would be worth a try for others.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing your story and experience, . I can hear how difficult and frustrating it was for you up until this past year. I am so glad that you've had some positive results with taking vitamin D3 supplements and going gluten free. How great to be experiences such relief! We do have a couple articles on the impact of vitamin D and psoriasis that I'll link here in case you (or anyone else reading your story) are interested in more information, Also, so many people in our community have found making dietary changes helpful in their psoriasis symptoms as well. And, although it's not always going gluten free, gluten does seem to be a trigger for many people here. We really appreciate you joining the conversation here and sharing with us. Wishing you continued relief! -- Warmly, Christine (Team Member)
