I recommend: 25-hydroxy vitamin D 3 level of 50-66 ng (not nanomols)/L. this usually requires around 5000 units D3 at least 5 days a week. For further wellness protecting goals and numbers you may consult me on health tap. H Robert Silverstein MD, FACC. Recommended reading www.thepmc.org ...Read more

Vitamin d levels 83nmol/l (32 ng/ml) is suppleming necessary as our body produces vit d from the sun and summer is close? Test was done b/c joint pain

Vitamin d levels 83nmol/l (32 ng/ml) is suppleming necessary as our body produces vit d from the sun and summer is close? Test was done b/c joint pain

See below:: No! i think normal level for vit d is more than 30, so you are well within normal range. You are correct that the body produces vit d from the sunlight. So i don't think you need supplements for it, but do check with your gp as the lab might be using a different reference points. ...Read more

Vitamin D Deficiency: Vitamin d is essential for keeping the calcium in the bones to strengthen it. If there is vitamin d deficiency, bone loss in the form of osteoporosis can be expected. Vit d is also essential for overall cardiovascular (heart/blood vessel) health so, supplementing with vit. D is essential. ...Read more

Worry re:other risks: First, i presume you mean your chol. Is 230 and LDL 100. The only reason to worry about chol. Is to lower risk of heart disease but your chol. Is not very high and even having normal chol. Does not protect against heart disease. The real cause of heart disease is inflammation.

Vitamin D,1, 25-Dihydroxy 90 pg/mL. Calcium 9.7 mg/dL. PTH 49 pg/mL. hsCRP 0.2 mg/L. Feeling well. No D Hydroxy was done. What would cause the High D?

Vitamin D: 90 pg/ml for 1-25 D is a bit high but not too bad when seen with the other numbers. I don't know why 1-25 but not 25 hydroxy vitamin d was not done. Have your doctor set that up for you. ...Read more

D3: D3 is preferred over d2 as it is less toxic and more bioavailable. Aim for serum level of d to be about 60. I would dose you at 10000 iu d3 daily for 2 weeks then 5000 iu daily, and also encourage 5-15 mins of sun exposure daily. Recheck d level in 2-3 months. ...Read more

Hba1c was found 6.1 and vitamin d level was found less than 5ngm/ml. Does taking vitamin d supplements cures my case of being prediabete. Thx?

Vitamin D cure?: Your being pre-diabetic will not be solved by vitamin d supplements. If you have risk factors for diabetes such as obesity, poor diet and lack of exercise, modification of those will be better than taking vitamin d. As your vitamin d2 level is low, supplemental vitamin d is needed and not for the prevention of diabetes. Speak to your physician about your problem. ...Read more

Is 1800iu of vitamin d too much during pregnancy? Thanks!

Is 1800iu of vitamin d too much during pregnancy? Thanks!

Probably not enough!: Most adults need to take about 5000 iu of vit. D3 to achieve optimal levels. However, in spring & summer if you spend time in the midday sun without sunscreen you don't need to take any. In general people don't get toxic unless taking at least 40, 000 iu/day for months, so vit d has a wide margin of safety. I advise taking vit a & k along with d for maximum benefits. Limit a to 5000 iu if pregnant. ...Read more

42yo male, blood test ->higher than normal estradiol levels & GI stool test ->high beta-glucaronidase - what's this mean? Take calcium D glucarate?

42yo male, blood test ->higher than normal estradiol levels & GI stool test ->high beta-glucaronidase - what's this mean? Take calcium D glucarate?

Get a consult: Most of this stuff about beta-glucuronidase in the stool comes from "independent medical thinkers" focused on gut flora and isn't mainstream. The scientific papers I've seen come from obscure institutions. And why are you having your estradiol checked? Reference ranges on labs are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. I'd get a second, mainstream opinion. ...Read more

Low normal: These are within normal limits but whether you need to boost the vit D3 level higher is another issue. I personally would like the 25OH vit D3 level to be between 60-80 for most people for benefits other than just for bone. ...Read more
