Common Questions and Answers about Vitamin d3 women


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.
944903 tn?1269268918 I take 2,000 IU of vitamin D (as vitamin D3). Earlier this year I was found to be very deficient in vitamin D, I went on a treatment of 20,000 IU for 2 months then I was put on 2,000 IU per day for the rest of my life. When I got pregnant I just kept taking the same amount. I have not discussed that with my gynecologist but my regular doctor told me it's very important for pregnant women to get enough vitamin D during pregnancy.

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.

Avatar n tn are you on vitamin d supplements?vitamin d3 supplements are necessry to avoid bone and fat problems while on tdf, also diet is very important i also noticed little fat gain when tdf was added to etv but since i reached bmi 21 with no fat at all it is easier to control it by vit d and diet.
Avatar f tn ) If looking at a multi-vitamin, pay attention to how much of various things (such as D3) is in the vitamin, and try to get a full dose. In my case I take D3, calcium and vitamin C in addition to any other vitamins, because my family has a history of osteoporosis and I can see it coming if I don't. In short, your vitamin intake should be according to your health.
Avatar m tn Most of the participants started the study with vitamin D levels below 24 ng/mL and were given 2,400 IU of vitamin D3 daily, while those starting with levels between 24 ng/mL and 32 ng/mL were given 1,200 IU daily. Treatment continued for 20 weeks or until vitamin D levels reached 48 ng/mL (levels in several patients went as high as 55 to 93 ng/mL). Twenty-four weeks after supplementation ended, pain returned to the original level in the group.
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.
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.
Avatar m tn 1,25 Dihydroxy vitamin D3 is made by the kidney, and it is made from 25 hydroxy vitamin D3 which is produced by the liver from Vitamin D3. Testing the levels of Vitamin D3 will only give data on the levels of vitamin D3, not the needed 1, 25 dihydroxy form that is the active form. The liver converts Vitamin D3 to 25 hydroxy vitamin D3. If the liver is diseased (cirrhosis, hep C or other form of hepatitis) there may be plenty of vitamin D3 but it can not convert it into 25 hydroxy Vitamin D3.
1183618 tn?1277365106 The recommended Vitamin D dose for women is 400 IU. You should not go over in supplementation. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin which means the vitamin goes into our fat cells and the body does not excrete it. 2000 IU is the tolerable upper intake level for adults; supplementation over that may cause a risk for toxicity (increased calcium, weak muscles, weak bones, excessive bleeding, severe headaches, and kidney stones).
Avatar f tn The drug company studies suggested that a universe of people with idiopathic hypertension could control this with vitamin D3 and calcium supplements without other drugs. That does not mean that everyone with high blood pressure can lower it with these supplements. There is a genetic componant. In one test study 15-18 percent of the test subjects could significantly lower blood pressure with calcium and D3.
1541233 tn?1308207002 Poor bone structure and constant bone pain is one of the important vitamin D3 deficiency symptoms in women. The other deficiency symptoms of vitamin D in women include neurological problems and back pain. Brittle bones is also the result of low levels of vitamin D.
Avatar m tn yes but we dont need full proff since high levels of vitamin d3 can only be beneficial this is what i mean so better keep them at the highest normal range of 60-100ng/ml instead of low range 40ng/ml or deficent at less than 40ng/ml same thing about cholesterol
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?
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).
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.
1536712 tn?1294043301 Hi, is it ok taking another vitamin D2 while still taking same vitamin from the doctor?

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 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.
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.
