Thank you for the welcome, Cookie!

Do you have any insight into the % versus amount vitamin question?

Hi, Everyone -
This is my first post...anywhere...and I'm not sure whether this is the place to do this or not. I've been reading, but haven't ever posted. I'm a relatively new member, just one month on SP, and I just love what I'm learning and how I'm feeling.

I'm a little confused about nutrient amounts, and I hope this question is appropriate here. In adding additional vitamins (D and some others) to track, the pop-up gives me the amounts to target in % - e.g. 110 to 150%. When I click the "more info" tab, I'm told in mcg. or mg what amount suits my age and sex. If I leave the % as it is, and then go to my nutrition tracker, it seems that the tracker is recording %s as mcgs. If I input the mcg and mg amounts, then the numbers are TREMENDOUS, and that doesn't seem right, either. At this point, I'm not quite sure what I'm tracking, and therefore don't know whether I'm getting the right amounts.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!
