Iron supplements and vit d, calicum. How does it effect absorption or should it be taken how far spart?
Why taking iron?: Vit d helps calcium absorption so it's fine to take together (though if your blood level's ok it's not necessary). While it's safe to take iron at the same time, minerals can compete for absorption so it might be best to take at a different time than calcium.Vit c improves iron absorption.However, iron is generally not wise to take after menopause unless you are sure you're deficient! see comment:. ...Read more

Just a few days but: If your high calcium is caused by calcium supplements then it should come down within just a few days of stopping the supplements.

How much vitamin d should I take.? I am not often in the sun, and someone recommended a 5000 dose sublingual once a day, so I take them. Any harm?
Depends: Hi. There's no absolute right level of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-D) in the blood. My personal goal for patients is to be at or above the mid-30's. It's estimated that you raise 25-D by about 6 for every 1,000 units of oral vitamin D you take. Therefore, based on how low you are, that helps you estimate a reasonable amount to take. Vit D toxicity is a myth; only calcitriol can be toxic. Good luck! ...Read more
