Should husband take RX Vitamin D 50000 with serum calcium level 10.6?
by Lana Miller
My husband's Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy level was 25. His serum calcium level was 10.6.
His MD ordered Vitamin D 50, 000 IU's 1 capsule weekly for 24 weeks. This is the first
time his calcium level has been elevated and also the first time to have Vitamin D levels measured.
He has been taking a D3 capsule, 1000 mg for a couple of years.
Your booklet says not to take Vit D if calcium level is elevated. Should he take the
MD's Rx or just treat with a 5000 IU supplement?
