Sublingual b12, 500-1000mcg/day. The form of B12 (cobalamin) may be important; see comment. ...Read more

Would taking 1800 mcg of vitamin d +400 mcg of calcium in be too much to take? Vitamin d low with 1400 mcg supplemented daily. I am 47yr old female.

Would taking 1800 mcg of vitamin d +400 mcg of calcium in be too much to take? Vitamin d low with 1400 mcg supplemented daily. I am 47yr old female.

Ask your doctor: If you have low vitamin D three levels, you should probably start supplementing. However because it is a fat-soluble vitamin, it can accumulate and build up reserves rather quickly, so you want to follow your doctor's advice on how quickly or fast s/he wants to do this. Also your ratio of calcium is off. So best to discuss this with your doctor to get you back on track. ...Read more

My vitamin B12 is 763 and it's suppose to be from 198-615. Is this bad and what does this mean? 24 y/o female. I don't take any supplements/vitamins.

My vitamin B12 is 763 and it's suppose to be from 198-615. Is this bad and what does this mean? 24 y/o female. I don't take any supplements/vitamins.

That's fine: Reference ranges are set to reflect where most healthy people fall. Some folks have extra B12-carrying protein and hence a higher B12 level in the blood, or you might have recently taken some B12 perhaps without knowing it. If you are otherwise well and your basic labwork isn't otherwise WAY off, this is never a problem. ...Read more
