My doctor has prescribed the medicine calcimax 500 for my mom who is currently on etv+tdf combo,my question is are the calcium and vit d3 levels mentioned below sufficient for her if she takes this tablet once daily(as prescribed by the doctor).Is a daily intake of 200 iu of Vitd3 sufficient for a person being on combo treatment for chronic hbv?She also takes Vit B12 and folic acid tablets......
i dont know why they produce this fraud, by sun exposure you can make 20.000iu per day in a sunny country with fullbody exposure and you will find that hbv carriers with damaged livers can t make enough vit d in their body even producing this much vit d
taking calcium is mostly useless, a correct quantity of vit d3 and vit k2 will correct calcium kinetics.vit d increases calcium absorption and k2 will fix it to bones
you can use the following products which are way better:
this is the best product, it is 3 pills a day
this is good too, 1 cap a day
this is good for osteo problems but it is 4 caps a day
there is no dose we are all different, there s a minimum required for pregnant women of 6000iu per day and you can take 10.000iu per day as a largely safe dose
best thing is start with 7000-10.000iu daily with k2 too and after 1-2months check vitd25oh and intact pth and then adjust dose according to optimum levels reached.optimum levels are 80-100ng for vitd25oh and at the same time intact pth mid low range of normal
if there is a lot of liver damage normal doses dont work because liver cant transform vit d, so it is best to check levels
if taking tdf vit d is mandatory because tdf makes changes to vit d/pth and leads to bone density loss
