I take 10000 ius Vit D3, I get it at a compounding pharmacy, no script. It has no fillers. Never got it from a reg store before. My Endo put me on 5000 4yrs ago, I did a lot of research on ovarian cancer after I lost my Mom 3 yrs ago. Vit D3 is said to have lots of protection with many different cancers (ovarian and breast being 2). I read to aim for optimal levels 70-100. So I increased w/out asking my Dr. I am seeing a PA now for thyroid, and he about fell on the floor when I told him how much I was taking. We did blood levels on me and my husband and guess what both of us was in the low 70s, right where we should be.
My husband has the light flecked skin, burns easy and has had problems w/skin cancers. I have a history of psoriasis. Neither of us has had any problems in 3 yrs now. The psoriasis is all but gone. What I have read Vit D is better than a flu shot, we don;t get flu shots. No colds either.
I seen on the Show the Dr's just this week, they said Vit D levels should be at 30. I just don;t think main stream med keeps up.
My close friend had a ck up a few weeks ago and the Dr ordered Vit D levels. She got the call that they were low and told to take 400 ius a day. I just don't see how that will improve the levels much. Also the Dr told her to just go to the Drug store and get the cheap one.
So this is my Vit D story. Do some research Dr Mercola is good I also follow the Health Ranger.
