    The naturopath/chinese medicine guy that we use is saying that a lot of people with autoimmune issues have problematic vitamin D receptors - google that, maybe you can find more on it. We're meting with him this weekend to get a new supplement regimen.
    Also, a doctor (phd chemist, not medical doctor) friend told me liposomal D (Dr Mercola sells it) is very easily absorbed, so that might be another thing to google.
    Good luck! And thanks for writing all that you write, it's very helpful.

    The thing that jumps out at me with respect to Ryan's lipid profile is the Triglycerides. Is he eating a lot of carbs?

    ...Tim

    Tim - Actually, very, very low carb diet composed of fruit and kefir smoothie in the morning. Veggies and protein for lunch and dinner and snacks (and an apple) We are GAPS/Paleo/Primalish people with no grains or sweeteners in the diet except 1 T of honey in the a.m. with our smoothie.

    Looking forward to getting the new results in a couple of weeks. If things quickly right themselves because coffee was removed that will be great.

    Hilary - He will also get his Vitamin D checked next time his blood is drawn. Will look into the receptor issue too.

    Thanks for the suggestions both of you!!

    Laura,
