Breast Cancer and Vit D

I have terminal Breast Cancer and Vitamin D 3 Level is 7. My oncologist told me that this is a normal Vitamin D blood level. I am taking 10,000 units of Vit D3...

Should I increase my Vit D3?

Is 7 a normal level or is it on the low side... I don't know what a safe level is?

Is there a connection between breast cancer and vitamin d?

Please give me info back.

Breast Cancer and Vitamin D
by: Kerri Knox, RN-The Immune Queen!

I'm so sorry to hear about your condition. I'm very saddened that we are desperately looking for a 'cure' for breast cancer while the answer for prevention of this horrible disease costs pennies a day and is readily available with excellent research to back this up.

Maybe some of these charities, like Susan G. Komen and others would do better to spend their monies simply talking about Vitamin D. But it seems that these charities all have their own agenda too. And it's not very sexy or profitable to talk about Breast Cancer and Vitamin D.

As far as your level is concerned, I'm not sure if you heard them right at the office or if they gave you the level of your 1,25 OH D Level, also called a DiHydroxy Vitamin D Level.

That is NOT the test that tells you about your Vitamin D levels that are affected by Vitamin D Supplements.

The one that YOU are concerned with is your Hydroxy vitamin D level also called the
25 OH D Level.

So, I urge you to call the office and ask for your level again and tell them that you want to know your Hydroxy Vitamin D Level OR your 25 OH D Level and also have them tell you the UNITS that is is measured in.

They should say something like,

"Your 25 Hydroxy Vitamin D Level is 20 nanograms/millileter"

A normal Vitamin D Level would be between 40- 60 ng/ml according to most researchers- with it actually being slightly on the higher end, around 50 to 80 ng/ml, if you are fighting a disease such as cancer.

It's exactly cases like yours that urge me on to continue creating this website and educating people so that that in the future, more people don't have to suffer from Breast Cancer And Vitamin D is one of the answers.

Breast Cancer is NOT a genetic disease!! Yes, genetics PREDISPOSE people to getting breast cancer- But only when the environmental conditions are right! And part of the reason that breast cancer is becoming so epidemic is because Low Vitamin D Levels are epidemic.

Please, all of you women out there who are reading this, PLEASE Get Your Vitamin D Level Tested Today!!

Researchers estimate that 75% of breast cancers could be PREVENTED if Vitamin D Blood Levels in ALL women were brought up to the optimal range of between 40-60 ng/ml!!

Prevention is Not what doctors do
by: Anonymous

The medical community does not educate us on prevention. It is not in their best interest. If they prevented a lot of illness, there would be no need to go to the doctor take prescription pills, etc. Less patients equals less money in their own pockets. Now why would they want to do that? Doctors are trained to treat illness, not prevent it from happening in the first place.
