vitd from fish is not good because it has too much vit a in a form which is toxic for liver
just buy vitamin d3 pills at 5000iu or 10.000iu, puritans are a good and cheap brand, also solgar and pegaso are good too, just make sure it is at least 5000iu per pill and it is not vitamin d2.vitamin d2 is synthetic and doesn t work
vitamin a is non toxic from betacarotens which are found in vegetables
I have also also pills (Cholecalciferol 50,000iu ) - (Food Chemicals Codex-IV Specs) . How much to take ? and how many days ? . Did Vitd3 test few months ago it was just 7 ng/ml. I would like to start D3 now.
7ng/ml is so low to be a risk for life, you should take 10.000iu daily (it is best than once a week) and recheck in about 4 weeks and then follow response
it is not easy to increase vit d fast for people with chronic diseases or fat do if you want to go for 20.000iu to be sure to increase blood levels faster you can take 20.000iu daily for 4 weeks and then check
remember to check both vitd25oh and blood calcium monthly you should be able to find your maintenance dose in 6-12 months at that time you can check less
because in people with a rare disfunction of calcium balance it can increase over normal range, and a high calcium level can make damage.none of us registered changes in calcium and a member who got vit d over normal range, around 110ng/ml, had the opposite a decrease in calcium but all within normal ranges
sorry i dont remember the name of this disease
to increase calcium a normal person needs levels of d3 to 450-500ng/ml, this has been registered only one time in a person taking millions of iu of d by mistake for 6 months.to decrease the calcium you just need to drink more water, and this is what this guy did, no damage to organs resported
Vitamin D is increasingly becoming recognized as an important physiological regulator with pleiotropic effects. A growing body of experimental and clinical evidence suggests that vitamin D deficiency is a risk factor in HCV-infected patients and that vitamin D supplementation might protect against liver disease progression and improve responses to treatment. There is still a lack of consensus on optimal 25(OH)D target levels and dosing strategies. The existing evidence highlights the need for additional well-designed clinical trials to evaluate the effects of vitamin D supplementation. The outcomes should include effects on the fibrosis progression rate (in patients with ongoing HCV replication and in patients who achieve a SVR), the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma, and the incidence of bone fractures. In light of data showing protective effects of vitamin D supplementation in preventing influenza virus infection , studies of vitamin D supplementation in HCV patients should also examine vaccine responses and susceptibility to infectious diseases. Given that the relationships between vitamin D and chronic inflammation and progressive hepatic fibrosis are not unique to HCV infection, and that vitamin D deficiency may also be a factor in other liver diseases , clinical trials to study the effects of vitamin D supplementation in HCV patients are likely to be broadly relevant to the field of hepatology. Although dose-response data are limited, many liver disease patients will likely require relatively high doses of nutritional vitamin D to achieve 25(OH)D levels above 20ng/ml. Until clinical data are available, 4000IU/day is a reasonable daily dose for patients with baseline 25(OH)D levels below 10ng/ml and 2000IU/day is an appropriate starting dose for patients with levels between 10 and 20ng/ml.
it is best for anyone to monitor response monthly and find the needed dose and adjust it high or low.a dose less than 5000iu is ridiculous it ll never work.just browse all studies on link i provided on vitamindwiki
i wasted two years on 5000iu daily plus taking sun etc just to find out how all that research on dose is useless and wrong
i was taken 50,000 iu per 5th day and after 1 month
you took 1 pill of 50.000iu once a week for 1 month correct?
my vitd3 goes to 70.8 ng/ml
this is a good value now take 5000iu daily and see if the levels stay stable, by the way with vit d levels around 70-90ng/ml there is no flu, me and my family members tired it since the statistical studies show this, no flu now in years since we started vit d supplementation
my boyfriend has hepatits b virus but i was vaccinated and completed the 3 shots and before i was given that i already had my titer test and the result was negative then last june 2011 i checked my antibodies and the result was 10U /mL then I get my booster dose last july 2011 then after that I didnt checked my antibidies again then by the month of august 2011 up to now i have unprotected sex with my boyfriend.. my question is since i completed the 3 shots and had my booster shot am I protected from the virus even my partner is infected.
we already have a combo of supplements studied to reverse cirrhosis and liver fibrosis.it has been studied and has FDA approval for the cure of cirrhosis, it is called hepatitistechnologies and it has milky thistle too among all the components
it can reverse cirrhosis with active virus infections (hbv or hbv+hcv) even not treating the infection but of course it would be much slower like 4-8years.
i reversed cirrhosis in less than 2 years with this and by suppressing hbv to undetactable
