Getting Your Vitamin D Blood Level into Normal Range
by: Kerri Knox- The Immune Queen

Hi Just Mom,

WOW! That IS a REALLY low Vitamin D level. It's a good thing that your doctor was smart enough to get a Vitamin D level!

Unfortunately, Just Mom, there is no way of answering your question without knowing how much Vitamin D your doctor put you on.

If he's starting you out on a VERY high dose over a short period of time, then it could be raised fairly quickly- several weeks to a month.

But if can take from 2 to 7 months to get it into the normal range.

Be sure to get your Vitamin D blood level checked again in 3 to 4 months to make sure that you are taking the right dosage.

You can even Get Your Vitamin D Blood Level Checked Right in Your Home!

Everyone is different and doctors are not yet used to the very high doses of Vitamin D that are required in order to get Vitamin D blood levels to within normal range, so it is important that you get retested.

There is nothing inherently 'wrong' with the Pharmaceutical Grade Vitamin D2, it is just not as efficient or effective as the Vitamin D3 preparations that you find in regular stores.

So, it certainly will not harm you in any way, it's just that your levels may not come up as quickly or as predictably as with Vitamin D3 preparations.

You could also get your Vitamin D blood levels up quickly and easily be exposing your body to sunlight as well.

A very fair skinned person can make 200,000 IU's of Vitamin D within 30 minutes of direct, full body sun exposure.

While doctors are telling us that sun exposure is bad for us, there are many researchers telling us that this is just not true.
