Blood test showed vitamin d deficiency. Why'd dr prescribe 1 pill (50, 000 iu) per week? A smaller dose 7 days a week would be much easier to remember!

Blood test showed vitamin d deficiency. Why'd dr prescribe 1 pill (50, 000 iu) per week? A smaller dose 7 days a week would be much easier to remember!

It is best to take vit d3 rather than vit d2. A cause of low vit d3 is stress induced activation of free intracellular cadmium which breaks down vit d. Doing other things to lower stress and inflammation will improve health as well. ...Read more

The : The best method to address your neck/chin loose skin depends a lot on your anatomy. If you have excess fat deposits in the area liposuction (or direct excision) may help. The concern would be that the overlying skin may not contract appopriately in the area to redrape it, though. This aspects depends on your overall skin elasticity. A neck lift can be done to furterh tighten the tissues in the neck area and if there is an excess of skin that needs to be removed a facelift may also be indicated. With patients who have quite a bit of weight loss like you did there is often an excess of skin that ends up hanging there under the chin. ...Read more
