    I was taking 100 units of VD3. My doctor told me to take 1000. I told him I already was. He said to take 5000. The next doctor I saw said not to take any. I am taking 1000 anyway, because I feel better when I take it. I work inside and get very little sunlight. I am a Sr. citizen, and none of my doctors really care anymore.

    I took 50,000 units capsule once a week for four weeks , and then one D3 1000IU each day for six months and my vitamin D levels went down instead of up, from 19 low to 17 lower. What went wrong? I am 70 yrs old and have been out in the sun with good results all my life. I am puzzled.

    I was diagnosed with Vitamin D deficiency for 2 to 3 yrs now, I did not know it at first until my doctor realize that I was having medical issues frequently so he decided to test my Vitamin D level… The test showed that I had a very low vitamin D level. He prescribed a 50,000 mg once a week for a month, and I noticed that I started to feel better, slowly my cardiovascular issue started to go away. After that I started my daily routine of 30 minute of walking outside, or just sitting at home in the window allow the sun rays to come into my home to get my daily dose of Vitamin D. I am thankful for this doctor.

    The overall content was informative as to the need for, and the distinction of the dietary supplement options.
    My physician performed the 25 Hydroxy Vitamin D, and my results indicated an insufficiency, (at 19). His recommendation was, as you stated, to take an OTC multi-vitamin containing vitamin D, with no mention of dosage, which leads me to believe that this is an area where (some) GP’s might lack sufficient information on what a proper intake might be.
    What I find lacking in this presentation, and was hoping for, was a more in-depth discussion of the myriad types of supplements presented on shelves today. For example:
    There have been many postings regarding the swing of actual amounts present of the supplement among manufacturers, levels of lead and other metals found in some products that are of concern and not mentioned in the paper. A better address of the supplement with and without calcium would have also been helpful. My last sample showed traces of calcium crystals and I certainly don’t want to put myself at risk for kidney stones (which was noted in a sidebar). I was also hoping for (expecting) a modest list of brands that demonstrated proved accurate USP dosing (USP also not mentioned) and quality vs.price advice alternatives. Your website posting mentioned one brand (Vitashine?) but no mention of other market alternatives which may have come to your attention.
    Kind of left to more online research (sigh) to find a reliable product choice(s) as I present several of the symptoms you refer to, and would just like to confidently go to the pharmacy and say “I’ll take this one.”
    Other than that, thank you for some overly useful information. (and I always enjoy your radio show aired on WBGO).

    My Pri care Dr. gave me the Vit D (Hydroxy-25) test and determined I was deficient. He prescribed Vit D2 [50,000 I.U.] one cap per week, then after my Vit D level was normal he prescribed Vit D3 [2,000 IU] Once per day. I have read where 4,000 IU of Vit D3 was even better? Your thought?
    Cordially,
