yes to first question

there exists no vit d dose for any diseases, the dose depends only on serum response and achievement of best serum levels 60-90ng/ml.this is because all chronic diseases hijack vit d pathways and response is extremely different from patient to patient, the worst prognosis has also the worst response and lowest serum levels, at 10ng/ml or less there is max death for all causes
