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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I was wondering I have been taking vitamin c and vitamin d for a year. Have I overdosed myself. If so how do I know. Are there any symptoms?Also I have heard to take calcium supplements with vitamin d. What if I don't is it serious? But i take vitamin c a
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.

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

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
Depends: It varies by age from about 200 international units (0.005 mg) to 600 iu per day, but that may be too low if you are not exposed to the sun much. More recent suggestions are 600 iu up to age 70, 800 after. Your doctor can check your blood level to see if you are low (which is a common condition) or not. ...Read more
It depends: The institute of medicine sets recommended dietary allowance(rda) at 600 iu for people ages 1-70 with safe upper limits for daily intake ages 9 & above at 4, 000iu. Many people take doses much higher than this if their levels are low but should do so under the supervision of their physician. If levels are normal 1, 000 iu is a good maintenance dose for adults. Vit d3 is better absorbed than d2. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
