Avatar f tn Vitamin D has a number of cofactors and the most important are magnesium, vitamin K, zinc, boron and vitamin A. The Vitamin D council state optimal vitamin D [25(OH)D] levels should be between 50–80 ng/ml (125–200 nmol/L).
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!
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 In recently looking at D supplements, I came across this statement on a manfacturer's website "Most Vitamin D supplements use ergocalciferol or Vitamin D-2 but Vitabase Vitamin D uses cholecalciferol, D-3, a more bioactive form. This is the same form of Vitamin D made by the skin’s exposure to sunlight.
Avatar m tn You do not need a prescription to buy vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is also available in supermarkets, pharmacies, health food stores, and online websites. The upper tolerable limit of vitamin D is 4000IU daily. There are vitamin D3 supplements that contains 1000IU per capsule. If you do take higher doses of vitamin D you must take into account magnesium. Vitamin D "uses up" magnesium to convert to active vitamin D in the blood.

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.

15848200 tn?1456634289 Vitamin D2 causes the amyloid protein in your brain to clump together making it difficult to remove this build up of amyloid. This leads to loss of cognitive function and sets up the conditions for Alzheimer's disease progression. Vitamin D3 helps clear amyloid from the brain which aids in improving cognitive function. Keeping 25(OH)D3 levels at or above 50ng/ml [US] or 125nmol/l [UK] is an important factor in reversing cognitive decline.

Commonly, most frequently used descriptions will be in ng and nmol. USA uses ng, while Europe commonly uses nmol measurements. I'd go with Vitamin D council recommendations: https://www.vitamindcouncil.
Avatar f tn I went back to the psychiatrist and showed him the results and asked me to stop all anti-anxiety and anti-depressants and start having Vitamin D supplement (10,000 UI D3 per day for a month, followed by 5,000 UI D3 FOREVER). The first week I felt 20% better, but I feel the fatigue and pain in my muscles, and sometime I feel down for no reason.
Avatar f tn Try vitamin D3. Supplements are cheap and easy to get at Costco, Walmart etc. Check the vitamindcouncil.org for more info in the connection between D3 and depression. My family has seen a big difference for all of our medical issues including depression. It takes time to build up enough D. They only check is to have a blood test done for D3, not D2. Your levels should be in between 50 and 70 mgl. If you are getting bloodwork done anyway have them add the test. Good luck!
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?
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.

Avatar f tn Tingly feet, legs and hands, unbalanced and lightheaded and have passed out a few times. Now, with my new bloodwork my Vitamin K is elevated at 1453. I have no idea what this means. Am I not processing vitamins correctly in my body because of the MTHFR gene mutation. My doctors don't seem to have an answer for me.
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 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.
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 n tn You certainly can overdose on Vitamin D3, but just go get your levels checked by the doctor. It is a simple blood test easily done.
1166907 tn?1263101648 of vitamin D supplemenation are almost always due to magnesium deficiency as vitamin D uses magnesium to convert to active vitamin D in the blood. So keep your magnesium levels up. Check your labs every three months to see how you are going. The vitamin D council recommend between 50 - 80ng/mL (125 - 200nmol/L) year round.
