My Doctor Said Not to Use More Vitamin D3
Which is better D3 or D2? My doctor has prescribed 50,000 iu vitamin D2 for 12 weeks. It has been 8 weeks and my levels have not increased. No my doctor has told me to up my dose to include taking 2000 iu vitamin D3 over the counter in addition to the 50,000 iu D2 a week.
I have read vitamin D2 is worthless, why should I continue to take vitamin D2 if it is worthless? Do I take the same amount of vitamin D3 (50,000 iu a week) as I did the vitamin D2? Is liquid vitamin D3 better or IV injection even better?
Can they give vitamin D3 by injection or liquid dose? Can I get vitamin D3 via prescription through my doctor? I also have rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, chronic pain & muscle aches, low energy and extreme fatigue. Could this be related to extremely low vitamin D levels?
