What is the quantum of vitamin d in an orange?

Not a D source: Oranges are not a vitamin d source. Some orange juices are fortified with a little vitamin d, but since orange juice is a fat free food, unless the you drink it with a meal containing some fat, your body can't use it.

My vit d is 70 ug/ml which is high.I get drowsiness and tiredness. Is high vit d causing that? How to get cured of that in a month?

My vit d is 70 ug/ml which is high.I get drowsiness and tiredness. Is high vit d causing that? How to get cured of that in a month?

NO: There is no fully agreed vitamin d level which is optimal, but we do feel that many patients do quite well with levels at 50-60 ng/ml, and your "70" should indeed be very safe. The drowsiness and fatigue should actually respond positively to vitamin d, unless you have a paradoxical rxtn. Since this is a fat soluble vitamin, can take time for level to drop. Work with your doctor. ...Read more

Even if allergy is part of your problem, these medications are not very effective. A better anti-inflammatory drug that might help temporarily is prednisone. ...Read more

Normal: 30 -80ng/ml: The normal vitamin d level ranges from 30-80ng/ml (may vary somewhat in different lab). Thus, level less than 30 is considered deficient.
