Separately, due to a Vitamin D deficiency my doc found, he put me on 50,000 units Vitamin D
per week for 8 weeks, followed by biweekly doses. And
guess what...the Vitamin D
almost instantly "cured" the BPH. I've seen that Vitamin D can affect the growth of prostate cells over the long term, but this worked as quickly (and about as well) as Flomax. (FYI: I'm diabetic and overweight, taking metformin, Byetta, lisinopril, HCTZ, gabapentin, lovastatin and Lantus). Is this normal?
