    I'll find out tomorrow! Apparently my levels are so low that I need the prescription strength and will need blood tests every 3 weeks to check I'm ok.
    I'll try the sitting in the sun as well, when we finally get some!

    keep an eye on your liver function or if youve not had one ask for a liver function blood test, mine was out of whack for almost a year and ive read somewhere on the web ( read so much in the last month lol) that higher results could mean the onslaught of diabetes and as youve been on steroids for so long they should be testing you for that anyways, now im off my steroids my liver function test is more or less normal
