5844567 tn?1378967719 How could i recover my deficiency of VITAMIN d3! i am 26 year female and my value is JUST 7.5 !! please help me out !! i am very worried !!
Avatar n tn I tested my vitamin D level. What do my results mean? I just picked the last two levels since the article is very long.... "My level is between 100-150 ng/ml Although these levels aren’t toxic and aren’t usually harmful, they are thought to be too high. There are no known benefits to having a vitamin D level over 100 ng/ml.
398059 tn?1447945633 Vitamin D3 is the best one for warding off MS. Most endocrinologists think the blood levels should be 50 to 100ng/ml . Holistic doctors believe supplemental Vitamin D3 will also help alleviate MS symptoms, but I don't think conventional neurologists hold to that belief. The RDA for vitamin D is low and most holistic docs think the RDA is outdated. Craig has been taking 5,000 IU a day for the past six months and his D3 level is only 55.9ng/ml.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone I have got some vitamin D3 in a liquid form I'm just trying to workout what is the ideal amount to take for someone with chronic hep b its says for evey 0.5ml there is62.5 ug (its not actually a "u" looks like a "y" the wrong way around. I currently take Magnesium and calcium aswell. No probs with that but I have bought some liquid zinc can anyone give me a good idea how much is good for someone with hep B.
Avatar m tn My Vitamin D3 is 7.85 ng/ml ( which is very low ). As we don't have any expert Dr. here. Kindly suggest me: - May i take D3 Injections or - Tablets ? I have Rock - D 300 dietary supplement which contains Elementry calcium 1200 mg, Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) 400 IU. Other Ingredients: Soyabean Oil, Glycerin,Gelatin, Soy Lecithin, Titanium Dioxide Color. If i go to tablets is it fine ? or injections ?
Avatar f tn it appears 800 IU per day or under seems to have little benefit for immune function. Carlson recently launched 2,000 IU vitamin D3 drops which are great for kids and adults who cannot swallow a small softgel or capsule. There is a 2008 vitamin D3 human study2 in the scientific journal called Virology Journal that I strongly recommend you read and share with your family, friends and coworkers.
15848200 tn?1456634289 your d3 went down because it was going down and will continue to go down are you taking d3? try getting sunlight on a daily basis go for a walk or a hike.exercise is helpful .do you have any symptoms or some type of infection or autoimmune disease?bacterial infections or fungal infections can cause this condition. like yeast among others.hope this helps.
Avatar m tn There are several forms of Vitamin D and we need to take Vitamin D3. Your doctor will tell you how much to take. Vitamin D3 is especially important in helping your bones stay strong.
Avatar f tn The research people believe that any children living in the northern hemisphere is at risk of being diagnosed with MS if they are tested for a Vitamin D level and found to be lacking Vitamin D. It was very upsetting to see how many of these young people are going through what we "older" people are only at such a young age. The following is something that I copied and pasted from our news program that was aired this evening...
335728 tn?1331414412 Forgot to add......... On the side of the vitamin bottle it states that "D3 is a more potent and active for of D2.
Avatar m tn All your aforementioned symptoms, would be explained by vitamin D3 deficiency including low absorption or Vitamin D3 resistance (muscle pain, weakness and twitching) and hyperparathyroidism ( bone and joint pain). Do you know what your D3 levels are presently (please include lab ranges) and did you get any of the above possibilities ruled out?
Avatar f tn I tried to take vit d3 in a liquid form (dropper) 1,000 mg a day due to d3 deficiency two different times. Both trial periods, I felt weak, dizzy with heart palpatations. Have u ever heard of this reaction to d3?
1355431 tn?1369975306 org. Babies also need enough D3. It comes in a liquid for kids, with a dose of 1,000 IU a day. Otherwise you can get gel or tab pills for adults. You may want to see another OB-GYN also to see if they have other suggestions in addition to baby aspirin. I hope that you start to feel better, and have a healthy pregnancy in the future if that is what you want. You do need to rest and build up your body in between pregnancies.
233622 tn?1279334905 Yes, vitamin D3 levels are very important in MS. First, the role of D3 is to act like a hormone that modulates the immune system. Back in 1997, it was found that when mice were given D3, they did not develop the mouse model of MS. As studies have progressed, the evidence strongly points to the role of D3 in preventing MS. That seems to be the link in the statistics that show that there is less MS as you get closer to the equator.
1647645 tn?1301337060 You have touched on a controversial subject. Human beings exposed to sunlight for forty minutes develop over 10,000 IU's of vitamin D3, and some physicians recommend that as the daily dose. The FDA requirement is a fraction of that. Evidence suggests that up to 5000 IU a day cannot get you into any trouble. Daily exposure to sunlight (at least 30 minutes a day withg as much skin as possible exposed) is the best way to ensure a proper dose of vitamin D3. Vitamin E can be very dangerous.
Avatar f tn DX low D3 taken 2000iu daily for 4 months DX still low doubled to 4000iu 1X daily does seem to help with the muscle contractions in my legs ( dx RRMS 5/12/2010) when reduced to 2000 iu temporarily the legs pain was back immediately any other vit D3 stories with similar results?

Avatar f tn As I said, since your K levels are pretty high, supplementing with 10 000 IU of D3 per day (or 70 000 IU, once per week) would be great for about 2 months to bring your levels to much higher ones. Natural D3 is always better of course, but you don't have to burn yourself in the sun. In general, all you need is about 10 to 15 mins in the summer sun between 10am and 3pm to get 10 000 IU of D3 daily.
3221216 tn?1373640059 The research showed the various pathways that vitamin D3 uses, showing the antiviral properties of vitamin D3 particularly during interferon treatment. Researchers noted that vitamin D3 combined with interferon alfa has a synergistic relationship (the drug interactions are magnified, in this case in a beneficial way). Also noted was that vitamin D3 combined with interferon alfa decreases viral production more than interferon alfa without vitamin D3.
Avatar f tn The Vitamin D Council actually recommends that healthy adults take 5,000 iu vitamin D3 everyday. Therefore, since you are severely deficient, like I was and must stay on guard so I won't be again, you can safely take the minimum of 5,000 iu everyday and then some. Seriously, everyone on this forum would benefit by signing up for the newsletters from this website.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if anyone is taking vitamin D3 to help with their anxiety or depression? I have heard lots of good things about it. I know I personally do not get out into the sun enough. I did start on 1000iu per day, but my chiro says to do 5000iu. He thinks it will work wonders on my anxiety. He's never steered me wrong before. Love this forum.
Avatar m tn I have been taking solgar vitamin D 3 10000iu per day for 6 months, my vitamin D level was 9ng/ml now it is 66ng/ml. Have not experienced any side effects. According to Stef we should reach about 100ng/ml.
Avatar f tn My doctor prescribed me these vitamin d3 wafers that I'm suppose to take weekly since my vitamin d is a little on the low side and he says vit d deficiency can cause several birth defects. So I've been taking Replesta vit d3 for 3 weeks now its one chewable tablet per week & just now I just read on the indications and use sheet "NOT TO BE USED BY PREGNANT WOMEN". Says it can cause heart defects in fetuses amongst other things. I dont know how to feel right now.
2200173 tn?1339840159 I had severe magnesium deficiency and after 6 months taking 5000IU daily of vitamin D3, my vitamin D levels only rose from 12ng/mL to 16ng/mL (30nmol/L to 40nmol/L). My existing severe existing magnesium deficiency symptoms worsened as vitamin D "uses up" magnesium to convert to active vitamin D in the blood. I could not get my vitamin D or calcium levels up until i corrected my magnesium deficiency. A good tip is keep magnesium levels optimal!
Avatar m tn Keep taking vitamin D3 until you are cleared of the bacteria. You can take vitamin D3 permanently however.
