Don't quit: Why would you stop taking the vitamin D unless your test shows normal level of it

Take oral Vit D3: Vit D levels should be in the 60-70 ng/ml range. You can reach this level with oral Vit D3, usually in the range of 5,000-10,000 IU daily. Take whatever dose you need to reach the 60-70 ng level. Injections should not be necessary.

A 35-year-old female asked about a 79-year-old male:
does exacyl interact with vit D or calcium?

No interactions: Exacyl appears to have no interactions with either Vit. D or Calcium, however, be aware that taking Vit. D and calcium together could lead to excess serum levels of calcium or a condition known as hypercalcemia. You'll want to get an occasional blood test to look at your calcium levels under that scenario....but you need not lose sleep over it....just to be aware.

If your calcium: is 11.07 mg/dl, then it is slightly elevated by more lab standards and should be evaluated with an ionized calcium, other lab tests and a visit to your doctor.
