Is 500 IU of Vitamin D Enough to Treat Vitamin D Deficiency?
My mother had her Vitamin D levels tested recently and they were at 25.7 ng/ml. She had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia several years ago and I had questioned her doctor about testing her levels because she suffers so much with muscular aches and pains.
He acknowledged that they were low and prescribed Citracal with Vit. D and magnesium.
The dosage is only 500iu of Vitamin D daily. I would like to know if this is really an adequate dosage to bring her levels up.
She doesn't get out in the sun very much and her diet doesn't include most foods that contain Vitamin D.
