How much vitamin D3 should I give my 5 yr. old son who has had severe tooth decay? It has been a long road to try and figure out why he has had to deal with this and being so little it has been hard.
It started when he was only 1 yrs. old. I now see some signs on my 1 1/2 yr. old son and am frantically trying to formulate their diet according to Weston Price and with supplementation.
Since decay is a sign of deficiency...how much should I give my boys? I would think more than the average dose of 2000 iu for my 5 yr. old and 1000 iu for my 1 yr. old.
I also have a 6 yr. old daughter with a alopecia areata. An autoimmune disease and am figuring all of this is coming from maternal vitamin d deficiency. Please help me with dosages. It is has been quite the research journey to correct our diet and find local farmers with raw milk, butter and cheeses etc... and since doctors only know how to treat the symptoms... it makes it tough. However, I feel well educated on nutrition and my family is better off because of it.
I know to test and will... but would rather get them started first and then test.
