If you page back a couple of pages on 17 July "ess" posted a really interesting piece about vitamin D levels which will be of interest to you. I had not heard about this before and shall be following it up at my next neuro visit.
When I was first diagnosed in March 2010, my tests showed I had low Vit D. My doctor has me taking 50,000 units once a week since then, and in a few weeks then I will slow down to 50,000 once per month.
I've read that Vit D deficiency is common in MS patients.
