Vitamin D

Posted , 3 users are following.

Can someone please advise me about what strength of vitamin D supplement is best for me to take? I have been told my vitamin D level is low and may be the cause of the aches and pains I have been experiencing the last few months. My doctor however did not tell me which strength is best and there's quite a variety. I have been taking some that are 12.5ug but have realised this strength is actually one of the lowest available? Thanks in advance

    Hi I was diagnosed with 7 ng/ml two weeks back. My doctor suggested for a 60000 IU sachet per week, to be taken for 8 weeks. The suggestion as per my reading comes from where is your level currently and where you want to reach (like 50 ng/ml etc).

    Mine was like a complete heart palpitations, acid fatigue and chest pain. I am yet to feel better as just 2 weeks gone.

    WIsh you good luck.
