Consider a better: approach, HFLC, often far more effective. Study: DietDoctor.com. Conversely, LFHC foods are associated with ?ed incidence of acneform sebacious gland infections & lesions. While Accutane & benzoyl peroxide (in many formulations), tends to calm lesions, for many replacing LFHC foods with HFLC foods ends up far more effective. No evidence the vitamins your taking are effective. Do your own trial. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Major circulating D: 25-hydroxy-vitamin D is the major circulating form of Vit. D and the best test to check Vitamin D status. One can check the 1,25-hydroxy form- that's the active form but is not a reliable way to see if you have adequate levels of D. We get D primarily by being in the sun so most Americans become deficient in fall and winter. I advise 5000 iu of D3/day in fall/winter. See http://tinyurl.com/2chkcer ...Read more

Unknown. Go natural.: Unless there are specific deficiencies in a woman, going natural is safest. It is not known what happens when a woman takes various drugs or chemicals, nor what is actually in various tablets or potions sold in stores or online. Eating a natural, balanced, healthy diet is safest (one can choose Organic foods if one feels Organic is safer). One can take a trusted brand of a daily prenatal vitamin. ...Read more

Dx osteoporosis & vit d insufficiency, take vit D3 & ca supplements (500mg citrate), can ca supplements be the cause to raised serum calcium?
Yes: Calcium supplements can potentially raise the serum calcium level, but in an otherwise healthy person they would typically not do so. The bigger question is why a 26 year old person would have osteoporosis, and it usually would take more than a vitamin d deficiency; if you haven't had one a thorough work up by an endocrinologist would be indicated. ...Read more

Recommended daily intake for: b-complex, vitamin b-12, vitamin a, vitamin k, vitamin e, magnesium and potassium?
Depends: If you look at any multivitamin bottle, there will be a rda (recommended daily allowance) for the different components. There is very little evidence out there that surpassing rda will treat or prevent any disease. From my field (ophthalmology), people who have moderate to severe macular degeneration can benefit from higher levels of a, c, e, and zinc, but the benefit is relatively small. ...Read more
S it fine to take glutathione 500mg,milk thistle extract 100mg, alpha lipoic acid 50mg, combined with d alpha tocopheryl acetate 400 iu?
Analysis: Why do you take all these items?. Where did you find such advice? Glutathione is a wonderful anti-oxidant, but does NOT cross into the brain, so of questionable value in bloodstream. Milk thistle extract has questionable benefit in most cases. Alpha lipoic useful in peripheral and central nerve disorders. You are far better off using mixed tocopherols, especially with gamma. See holistic doc ...Read more
Are there different tests for Vitamin D & Vitamin D3? Specifically: Vitamin D3 (25 OH D) and 25 (OH) Vitamin D?
Yes: When there is a reason to test, testing for 25-OH-VitD2 level and for 25-OH-VitD3 level, plus adding the results to get the total vitamin D level, can help the doctor check the source of the vitamin deficiency and the treatment progress. There is debate over when it would be needed to do these tests. Some doctors feel that giving people more vitamin D would avoid deficiencies and avoid lab tests. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 more
