MS and Vitamin D deficiency

by Cheryl

I have MS. I was diagnosed 2001. I asked to have my vitD level checked in the last 30 and it was 16.4! I have been taking 50,000 iu per week since and I have to recheck my levels in a couple more weeks. Do you think it would be beneficial for me to stay on a high dose of vitamin D daily to keep my levels at the max, once I get there?

Thank you, Cheryl ... 33 y/o female (in case that info is helpful)

I can't help you..

Hi Cheryl,

Unless you have a doctor who can help you to maintain your levels at the maximum levels and/or you are EXTREMELY knowledgeable about doing it yourself, then I don't suggest that you maintain at maximum of high levels because of the chance of toxicity.

And the fact that you are taking Prescription Vitamin D and that you are, presumably, NOT taking magnesium with that vitamin d and are not on a gluten free diet makes me believe that you are not knowledgeable enough to be maintaining maximum optimal vitamin d levels without having a competent practitioner well versed in vitamin d help you out.

So, in lieu of finding a practitioner help you with that, then please read my pages on:

Vitamin D Therapy

Magnesium and Vitamin D


Gluten Sensitivity

then get the book The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles. It was written by a medical doctor who reversed her own MS after having traditional medicine fail her, leaving her completely disabled despite doing all of the 'cutting edge' medical treatments.
