Vitamin D Dosage For a Diabetic
I am a 51yr old white male. I just got results from some blood work and my Vitamin D 25 OH is 16.1 ng/ml.
My doctor advised me to start taking a prescription supplement of 5,000 units a day of type D2. After reading the online literature, it seems that I should be taking vitamin D3 instead.
I am also diabetic and my AIC is 5.8. I don't take any drugs for it, as I can control it with diet.
Do you feel 5000 IU a day is sufficient?
