re: doctor says more than 2000 vit d can be harmful for me
My rheumatologist urged me to stop taking 10,000 vit d3 daily, because my Calcium levels are normal. My physician says my Calcium will raise and cause me kidney stones and possible other complications. I was diagnosed with Vitamin D deficiency after i went in complaining of extreme bone pain. My original Vitamin D level was at 11, I was told to take otc vit d 2000mg. Which I did, levels went up to 22 after 3 mths, now i'm at 36.1... But i'm still experiencing extreme bone pain, itchy skin, hair loss... I'm worried something is being missed.
My thyroid was checked and was normal, my antibodies were elevated but my Dr. says thats nothing to worry about since my tsh was normal. I'm back on 2000 mg of vit d daily
