Vitamin D deficiency after supplements

by AG

Can anyone tell me what this means?


I've been taking 2000 IU of vitamin D per day since August 4th due to bone pain and neurologic problems. I suspected a vitamin D deficiency, I was actually tested on 9/13 and my result was 24 ng/ml. I am 40 years old ( if that matters)?

I was retested on 10/12 and my number didn't change.

My results are as follows:

VITAMIN D, 25-HYDROXY 24 30-100 ng/mL
VITAMIN D, 25-HYDROXY, D3 24 ng/mL
VITAMIN D, 25-HYDROXY, D2 <4 ng/mL

Thanks
AG

You're Not Taking Enough
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi AG,

The reason that your numbers didn't change is because you are taking a maintenance dose for a 50 pound child!

2000 IU's is simply not nearly enough to Treat Your Vitamin D Deficiency.


In fact, you are lucky that your numbers didn't go DOWN because that is LESS than you need to meet your daily Vitamin D Requirements.


So, read those pages and get on an appropriate amount of vitamin d. You'll be likely to need AT LEAST 5000 IU Vitamin D3 Supplements per day like these that I offer here on this site- and don't let your doctor talk you into taking Prescription Vitamin D as it is FAR inferior to Vitamin D3.

Ignore the D2 on the Lab Report...

Ignore the D2, it's meaningless.

It means that you have a vitamin d level of 26. Please read my page on Vitamin D Therapy for step by step instructions on what to do about this.

I also suggest that you get the Vitamin D Absorption Pack to 'cover all of your bases' by providing all of the Vitamin D cofactors needed to absorb and convert vitamin d properly, and to prevent the vitamin D side effects that can occur when these cofactors are not present.
