Vitamin D After Kidney Transplant

I am a 64 year old Hispanic male with mild hypothyroid condition controlled by 50 mcg/day of synthroid and a long term, stable kidney transplant (23 years)requiring immunosupprssion.


I exercise and feel well. I was taking 1000 mg./day of Vit D until I saw a deficiency in my blood level of Vit D. I then started taking 2000 mg. Is this too much?

Hi Oso,

I wish that I could tell you whether that is too much or not, but since you have had a kidney transplant, you need to speak to your transplant doctor and get all recommendations from him (or her).

Vitamin D does have the ability to improve the immune system, which COULD be devastating in your particular case. You must get all Vitamin D recommendations ONLY from your doctor...
