Vitamin D Level of 25
by Michael Kogut
I had my Vitamin D level tested and it was 25. My rheumatologist put me on 50,000 iu per week for 8 weeks. I had another blood test after the 8 weeks, and my level jumped up to 60.
I am now taking 5,000iu per day. I am also taking Oscal that has 400iu and my multivitamin that also has 400iu. Is this too much Vitamin D to be taking and if so, should I back off and take 1-5,000iu every OTHER DAY?
Just to give you a little health background: 53 years old, type 1 diabetic for last 47 years w/no complications, I am in very well control of my diabetes, I take all my prescribed medications for high blood pressure & cholesterol.
Please give me your best advice from the above personal outline.
Thank You, Michael Kogut
