Which vitamin d should I take to help decrease psoriasis break outs...Vit d 1000..Vit d 2000..Vit d 500 with 1200 calcium..Stores have huge selection?
Be careful.: Regardless of what you have read on "natural health" web sites, there is no credible evidence that oral vitamin d is an effective treatment for psoriasis. High doses can raise your calcium levels to the point where you can develop kidney stones and other serious medical problems. 800-1000 iu is a safe daily dosage to prevent vitamin d deficiency. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends...: How much calcium depends on your diet ; type of calcium you take; with a healthy diet you may not need any (leafy greens are best source). 400 mg of calcium citrate can be as well-absorbed as 1200 mg of calcium carbonate. 400 iu of e is reasonable but only natural e with mixed tocopherols. 5000-8000 iu of d3 fall ; winter, maybe none spring ; summer if you get sun. Take 1000 mcg of k2 with d. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
1200 mg calcium w/ 800 iu vitamin d per serving (serving= 2 softgels) what vitamin to combine w/ to avoid another kidney stone ps i need my protein 2?
Magnesium, Vitamin K: Magnesium has been proven to dramatically reduce recurrence of kidney stones- research shows that taking magnesium reduces incidence of kidney stones 90-92%- it probably works best combined with vit b6 try about 600 mg of magnesium as glycerinate, citrate or taurate and 50-75 mg of b6. I feel everyone taking d should also take vit k, at least 1 mg/day- vit k makes sure calcium goes to your bones. ...Read more

Does not matter: I would not take ANY of these. Some are harmful. All are useless in the absence of specific indications. If you have medical problems, see your DR. If you have no symptoms, realize that the purveyors of all these are making a sucker out of you. ...Read more
Can i just take 5000 units of vitamin d without calcium or should I take calcium with vitamin d 5000 units?
Less D: As a male, you should be able to get sufficient calcium from your diet as long as you drink milk and eat dairy and veggies without problems. 2000 units of vitamin d3/day is all you really need, some will be in your diet. You won't find calcium with 5000 units of d, as that's excessive and not allowed to be sold. ...Read more

Prescription : If you need this kind of supplementation of vitamin d, this dose strength may only be available by prescription, which is the only way our patients can get it. This is a very high dose and requires close medical follow-up. Calcium supplements without vitamin d can be found in otc tums. Again, please discuss how much you need with your doctor. Too much of either can cause significant trouble. ...Read more
I take a multivitamin daily + D3 suppl for a total of 1800iu. But is it ok to take extra supplementation of vitamin E and vitamin c? What about zinc?
Yes - depends a bit: Most adults need 5-8000 iu of d3/day to achieve optimal levels of 50-80. Most multivits have 30-60 iu of e but there are benefits to taking 400-800 iu of e a day, but only as natural e with mixed tocopherols- Alpha tocopherol alone may be hazardous.I advise people take 1-2, 000 mg of c 2x/day. Too much zinc can be toxic but doses up to 40 mg/day are safe-but balance with copper in a 10-15:1 ratio. ...Read more
I am currently taking cod liver oil glucosamine chondroitina and 10pg of vit d ... I wish to take calcium magnesium too but has 5.0 vit d isit ok?
My vitamin d 25 hydroxy is low at a 27.8. How do I know which vit d should I take? Can i take a vitamin D3 1, 000 pill to help raise it?
Vitamin D: Although there is some controversy about the cutoff of normal level of vitamin d, it is generally agreed that above 30 is a normal level. So, your level is only slightly below that, and 400-500 iu of vit d3 supplement should be sufficient, and 1000 iu will certainly raise it above 30. Depending on your risk for osteoporosis, higher levels of vit d may be recommended. ...Read more
Is it unhealthy for me to take these vitamins separately once per day; vitamin c, calcium, fish oil, coq10, and vitamin b?
Vitamins D & C: Please get lab tested by your doctor or a another licensed health care professional. One size does not fit all. 10K IUs is a lot of D3. Many take 5K but after lab testing. C lasts about 12 hours in the body so it needs to be taken in two doses, a.m. & p.m. for effectiveness no matter how much you take. Peace and good health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My vitamin d level is 18 ..why vitamin d supplement gives me horrible muscle cramps ..should I take calcium with vitamin d or take vitamin d only ?
Unusual response: This is a very unusual reaction to Vit D. You are more likely to be reacting to the other ingredients in the supplement so look for a pure Vit D3 with minimal additives. Most adults need 5-8000 iu/day to get optimal levels of 50-80. You probably don't need calcium unless your diet is low in calcium but it is wise to take Vit K with Vit D. Muscle cramps may be caused by low Magnesium. See comment: ...Read more
