I knew this was wrong to just take Vitamin D without knowing my current level.
I began SOC trt 4/21/2011. My initial Vitamin D3
levels taken on 8/04/2011:
Vitamin D, 25-OH, Total 30 ng/mL (Range 30-100) Borderline Deficient
Began taking 5,000 IU/day after discussing with the doc and continue until further testing.
11/28/2011: Vitamin D, 25-OH, Total 48 ng/mL (Range 30-100).
As you can see my Vit D3 level has only risen 18 ng/ml in nearly 4 months of taking 5,000 mg/day while on trt.
