Do I Need to Continue Taking 50,000 IU per Week

Should You Continue Taking Vitamin D?

Should You Continue Taking Vitamin D?

I had good news today. I have been doing a wheat and gluten and yeast free diet now for 3 months. I found one of your pages to be very helpful when you had mentioned a connection between having a problem with absorption of vitamin d and the connection with wheat and gluten allergy.

I had levels of vitamin D 3 months ago which was a 8 and I did this diet of no wheat and gluten to see if my vitamin d numbers will go up. I got my test results today and my vitamin D went from a 8 to 90. I was so happy and it felt good.

I was taking vitamin D3 50,000 IU 3 times a week which I also think helped. I have been taking magnesium as well and my anxiety is definitely better than it was before. I know I cant go off the diet I am doing which is hard but is well worth it. Is it still bad to take vitamin D3 50,000 now that my levels are up? Will it be to much vitamin D3?

50,000 IU's per week

Hi Rivki,

So glad to hear about your success with the vitamin d and the Gluten Free Diet.

No, you don't continue taking 50,000 IU's per week any more. You're in maintenance mode now and so the recommendation from Dr. Cannell at the Vitamin D Council is around 5000 IU's per day for adults.

So, time to decrease the dosage and get another Vitamin D Test done in about 3 months to make sure you're taking an appropriate dose...
