Is 1000 IU's of Vitamin D Per Day Enough
(Elm City, NC)
I am a 25 year old, wife and mother to an active 14 year old boy! For the past 7+ months, I have suffered from chronic fatigue, weakness, and more recently body pain. My doctor ordered blood tests, and my vitamin D level came back as 18.2 ng/mL. She says that this could be the cause of my severe fatigue and weakness!
I have done a lot of research on Vitamin D deficiencies, and I keep reading about the 'high dose' treatments everyone receives.
However, my doctor simply told me to go buy 1000 IU vitamin D3 supplements and take 1 a day!
I have read your write up about the ineffectiveness of Prescription Vitamin D
, however, my question is, will 1000IU of vitamin D3 per day, be even close to enough to bring up my levels up to 'normal'?
