Vitamins To Increase Blood Oxygen Level
A blood test showed that I'm B12 deficient. Serum B12 level of 186 pg/ml, should I take vitamin B12 supplements?
B12: This low will likely cause dementia, spinal cord degeneration and peripheral neuropathy. Keep your level above 550 for the rest of your life. Recovery takes about a year in a young person. I suggest you take liquid sublingual weekly for 3 months then bi weekly thereafter. Its important to check a level after you cut back to twice a month. Use 1 1/2 dropper and hold it under the tongue for 30 sec. ...Read more
I take 2 (1000iu)vitamin d3 tablets daily. My recent blood work has vitamin d levels at 44. Normal range is 75-250. Insight? Nutrition to help raise?
1000 units of vitamin D taken once a day is what you need.
I don't understand why a doctor would prescribe 2000 units.
Normal range for vitamin D is not 75-250, and levels of 30+ with once daily vitamin D is what you should end up with. ...Read more
My vitamin D level is 13 out of 30 after blood test. I was prescribed D2, which made me sick and doctor said not to take anymore. How do I increase?
Get some sun!: Docs will often prescribe 2000 IU of Vitamin D daily to patients that are deficient or 50, 000 IU once a month. They may prescribe more for severe deficiency. If you cannot tolerate the pills, a little sun will do the trick. Too much sun we worry about skin cancer, but if you are fair skinned 10 minutes in the mid-day sun will provide you with 10, 000 IU. This would not be a great risk skin cancer. ...Read more

No! Fasting of? Value: Fasting for most issues not only of low value but often misleading. Ex.: people commonly told to fast before blood glucose test; yet Diabetes Mellitus=elevated blood glucose & glucose most commonly elevated after eating. Thus fasting glucose routinely misses Diabetes Mellitus. Fasting is promoted for only a few issues because how databases were done or because the values are calculated/estimated. ...Read more
Not a problem: I presume that this is because you are ingesting a large amount of b6, probably through supplements but perhaps via diet. B6 is not hazardous unless you take large amounts for a long time, generally 250 mg/day or more, or it may cause neuropathy. High levels just mean you have more than most people but is not dangerous. ...Read more

Blood result showed that I was deficient of vitamin D. I scored half of what a normal level is. Type of vitamin D should I take and how much (IU) a day?
5-10, 000 iu D3/day:
With levels that low I advise you start by taking 10, 000 iu of D3 a day for 2 months, then reduce to 5-8000 iu/day. At some point you should recheck your levels. Optimal levels are 50-80. It is best to take Vitamin K along with D and make sure you are getting Vit A as these vitamins work synergistically. Avoid D2, which is dangerous! See
