How Much Milk Is Needed To Give Enough Vitamin D
Depends: If you have had your Vit D level tested, your doctor has probably given you some recommendations based on that. Encourage him to write prescription strength if your insurance pays for i (sometimes prescription strength, if generic, can be cheaper than over the counter too, even if you don't have insurance).

Most adults need to take 5000-8000 iu/day to achieve optimal levels. See http://www.Vitamindcouncil.Org/about-vitamin-d/how-do-i-get-the-vitamin-d-my-body-needs/. ...Read more
Probably fine: Epidemiology generates all kinds of junk data and I'd ignore studies that report, "Thus-and-so many people with more than thus-and-so daily had more / thus of thus-and-so" unless it makes physiologic sense. This is more than you need to be healthy. Ten thousand is an often-cited recommended upper limit. Much higher vitamin A intake actually will make you sick. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Then supplement up to your recommended intake, if necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
