Will that's a great news,this is an inspiration to all of us who struggles with vit D D.
Please take care of yourself and give us another update on how you're doing.
Are you kidding. Does it take that long to get your levels up. Wow! Congrats btw.
It took me just 2 months,to get my level to 76ng\L,Using vitamin D3 not D2.
Everyone's body chemistry is different and so every person is going to respond differently to the treatment.
Good to know -- as you know I'm trying to make the switch from D2 to D3, largely due to side effects. I want to take 5000 IUs of D3 daily. Let's see what the doc says.
good news, indeed. altho, i was hoping that recovery time wasn't quite so long. i was diagnosed and put on 10,000 IU's a day a month ago. i am a little better but still can't really do the things i used to and can sleep an awful lot, even if i can't sleep, i need to lay down. the depression comes and goes, but some of it is situational, too. the muscle and bone aches are much less, altho a toothache has been exasperated by this i think. doc wants me to check in one more month and would like to see levels at 60. i get some nausea, does anyone else from vit d dosages this high? i am also taking chantex, began my smoking cessation program just before this was diagnosed.
Hey, it sounds as if you're doing great in terms of getting your numbers up. After nearly 200,000 IUs my D only went up to 27 from 20. I had severe intolerance to vitamin D doses that high and nausea and palpitations were among the adverse events I experienced. However, I know other people who do just fine on mega doses of D daily (5000-10,000) or weekly (50,000). I had to switch from D2 (50,000 IUs weekly) to D3 (right now I'm only able to tolerate 2000-3000 IUs daily). In my case, raising my D and calcium levels may have unmasked a thyroid or parathyroid problem (hence the intolerance) -- I'm seeing an endocrinologist at the end of the month and was found to have colloid nodules on my thyroid.
