How Do I Raise My Vitamin D Level?

I take a 30-45 min walk every morning with no sunscreen. I live in San Diego. I take approximately 1600 IU's of Vitamin D per day. I take 3200 mg of Carlson fish oil a day. I eat salmon or trout about twice a week. My total vitamin d level is 38. What more can I do for optimum levels? Thanks.

Just take more vitamin d
by: Kerri Knox, Registered Nurse

Not sure why you wouldn't just take more vitamin d. Is there some reason why you think that you should not take more than 1600 IU's of vitamin d per day if you are still vitamin d deficient? Or expose more of your skin to the sun for longer? That's how we get more vitamin d, and so the only ways to get your level up.

Please see my page on Vitamin D Therapy for step by step instructions on bringing your levels up to optimal.
