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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
