How much vitamin d should you take in a day? Is it possibel to overdose?

Vitamin D: Depends on many factors e.g. Age, amount of skin exposed to sun rays daily, use of sun blockers, time of day that skin is exposed, race, location, and other factors. The best source of vitamin d is that which your body makes from exposure of the naked skin to the sun rays. If this is not optimal then vit. D supplementation is necessary. Keep the blood level above 40 but below 90 for safety. ...Read more

Vit c, vit d: You don't say how much you have taken. Vitamin C is hard to overdose on, especially if you are sick or stressed. Side effects would include heartburn, reflux and diarrhea. Vit D however, is fat soluble and therefor, more prone to overdose. I have pts take 2-5000 IUs daily. Overdose Symptoms include increased calcium, kidney problems, weakness, nausea and vomiting. ...Read more

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

How much vitamin d should I take per day to defeat acne , is there a better solution ?

Do it right: Vitamin d isn't the answer to your acne, and overdoing it is just asking for kidney stones and other serious health problems. Same for vitamin a. I'm sorry you read this junk on the internet. If topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength rx. Acne is a serious illness and deserves 21st-century treatment. ...Read more
