Mid 20's. LA via New York via LA. Work in Reality TV. Very Liberal. Loves include in no particular order, pop and world culture, fashion & design, animal rights, political discussions, travel, and food--especially cheese and sushi (but not together). I have a French Bulldog named Bruley & he’s the coolest.

Sunshine. Salmon. Milk.
What do they all have in common? Both are consumed by me on the reg, and both are high in Vitamin D.
Seriously, my perfect day consists of 1.) iced coffee with an absurd amount of milk & a bowl of cereal, 2.) hours and hours spent in the sun with SPF 12 or below 3.) lots and lots of sushi for dinner.
So imagine my surprise when my Dr. just read my blood test results to me over the phone and said my Vitamin D levels were extremely low. Normal is between 30—100. Mine are at a 16! Or are they? He then admitted that the paper was very smudged and he was “pretty sure” it said 16. He wants me on prescription grade Vitamin D pills for 8 weeks starting immediately.
This just doesn’t seem right. I’m not one to be skeptical of doctors. My dad is a doctor & my mom is a dietician. I trust science and medicine.
But seriously. 16? Not a chance it said 76?
I’m undecided. Do I take the pills and call it a day? Ask to be retested?
Either way, I’m having a sushi for lunch. Mmmm.
