Thanks for the info!
I am not a fan of most of the items on the list. Good thing I like eggs.
Good thing I like fish and eggs!
Excellent article with valuable information. Thanks!
I was prescribed Vit D and Calcium supplements and got sick. Ended up seeing many specialists. Not fun and very scary. :(
I have trouble keeping my D3 and my B12 vitamins up high enough because of dietary restrictions and sensitivities. Right now supplements are my friend!
Working under direction of primary care physician and clinical nutritionist have supplemented with 5,000 IU per day for over 2 years and still do not have vitamin D levels where they want to see them even though I have never had a deficiency. And, no vitamin D toxicity for me.
My husband's orthopedic surgeon had him supplementing with 10,000 IU for a period of time and has him currently supplementing with 5,000 IU. Again, he has supplemented at these levels for years. His blood levels are also monitored.
good reasons to get outside and play!
Per my doctor following blood work that showed a Vitamin D deficiency, I take 1000iu of D3 every day. Just concerned after reading this that maybe that is too much.
Loved this article!!!
Awesome article. I learned a lot from reading it
Read this again this morning for a refresher course in Vitamin D. Still a great read!
