My vit. D2 is 21.4 ng and my d3 is 26.3 ng for a d2/d3 total of 47.7 my Dr. Says aok others say now way to low opinions?

My vit. D2 is 21.4 ng and my d3 is 26.3 ng for a d2/d3 total of 47.7 my Dr. Says aok others say now way to low opinions?

Sounds ok if...: Sounds ok for a typical normal person. Testing for 25-OH-VitD2 and 25-OH-VitD3, and then 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 doing lab tests. ...Read more

No way & values are: Low. Vit D3=what counts &=only common vitamin deficiency in US. 30 ng/ml=bottom 2% US population, 100 ng/ml=top 2% US population. Go for near top: important for Ca+2 absorption, bone strength & several other issues. Multivitamins about marketing/money; not health; thus avoid. Most bang for buck=a quality 50, 000 IU capsule of D3 once weekly, recheck levels at 3 month intervals & adjust as needed. ...Read more

I've been prescriped 50, 000 iu vitamin d2 plus 5000 mcg b12, is that safe?

I've been prescriped 50, 000 iu vitamin d2 plus 5000 mcg b12, is that safe?

Who prescribed?: It would be prudent to talk to the doctor who prescribed these. In general vitamin D3 is better than D2. You can safely take about 4000 units of vitamin D3 daily. Taking B12 orally may not work if you cannot absorb it. If you are prescribed 5000 mcg/day that is far more than you need. Let me reiterate, talk to your doctor, if you do not have a rapport with him/her, see a new doctor. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Heart rate reaches 180 spontaneously. Take corlanor to control. Family doc gave 50, 000 IU vit d2 for deficiency. Dangerous for heart?

Heart rate reaches 180 spontaneously. Take corlanor to control. Family doc gave 50, 000 IU vit d2 for deficiency. Dangerous for heart?

No: The vitamin d is not dangerous to your heart and in fact its deficiency is thought to contribute to the risk for heart disease. My question is why are you on corlanor and is it actually working or is the HR of 180 happening while on it? It is only indicated in the setting of heart failure and is usually the second line treatment. You seem young to me for that ...Read more

I am experiencing aching muscles. And pain in my left shoulder is this a side affect from taking vitamin d2?

Degeneration of the joints or discs can cause neck pain, headaches, and shoulder pain. You can also get neck pain from a muscle strain. In some cases neck and shoulder pain could be related to your heart so be sure to see you physician. ...Read more

How many IUs of vitamin D2 and IUs of vitamin D3 does an adult male vegan need on a daily basis? Does it depend on his calcium intake? Is it ok to take vitamin D in morning pills and take in calcium in different meals throughout the day?

How many IUs of vitamin D2 and IUs of vitamin D3 does an adult male vegan need on a daily basis? Does it depend on his calcium intake? Is it ok to take vitamin D in morning pills and take in calcium in different meals throughout the day?

The Office: Of Dietary Supplements of National Institutes of Health's (odd. Od.nih. Gov) Recommended Dietary Allowance is 600 IU/day for males 19-50 years. As a vegan, it would be difficult to get in diet as principle sources are fatty fish, eggs, fortified milk. Vitamin D2 and D3 can be considered equivalent; most supplements are D3 (you don't need both). AM dosing ok; calcium recommendation is 1000 mg/d. ...Read more

Why is it important to have vit d2?

Why is it important to have vit d2?

Avoid D2!!!: It's important to not take d2!
natural vit d3 is essential for our health ; reduces mortality, preventing cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, autoimmune disease etc. However, vit d2 (a pharmaceutical) has been shown to actually increase mortality! It's commonly prescribed by doctors but these docs are (likely) unaware that d2 is harmful. Most adults need 5-8000 iu of d3/day. See http://bit. Ly/1hc250m. ...Read more

I have vit d deficiency and was prescribed vit d2 1.25 mg (50, 000). What is the difference between v it d2 and vit d3?

D2 vs D3: If you have a choice, use the d3 rather than the d2. The d3 is a more useful form for the human body. There are very technical differences between these compounds. Note that I am not using the term 'more natural' since these compounds are often both made synthetically. ...Read more

Vit d2 is less than 4 ng/ml while d2 is 27. Overall my vit d is low. Does d2 matter?

D2 D3 and more: Vitamin d2 (ergocalciferol) is a "prodrug" meaning it must be converted to its active form - d3 - to be beneficial. That being said, knowing your vit d3 level can be more helpful. Vitamin d3 levels in the 50 ng/ml range are considered optimal. Remember, sunlight, fatty fish, fortified foods and even shitake mushrooms can all contribute to vitamin d levels. Proper levels ensure proper immune fnxn. ...Read more

I was given vitamin d2 50, 000 units, 1.25 mg to take weekly. I took 2 in 4 days by accident. What will happen?

I was given vitamin d2 50, 000 units, 1.25 mg to take weekly. I took 2 in 4 days by accident. What will happen?

Nothing, but change D: This is not harmful- you would need to take it daily for weeks to become toxic. But I advise you stop d2 & change to d3 (available at health food stores) 5000 units/day & tell your doctor, because recent research suggests that whereas vit d3 is very helpful, d2 may be quite dangerous!

I am vit. D deficient level 17 and have been prescribed 50000 iu of d2 3x week for 4 weeks. Could I instead of d2 take D3 in the same amount?

I am vit. D deficient level 17 and have been prescribed 50000 iu of d2 3x week for 4 weeks. Could I instead of d2 take D3 in the same amount?

Yes: D3 is actually preferable. Take d3 10, 000 units every day and see if you feel better and if your morning t rises to 97.6 to 98.6. Vit k2 at least 100 mcg a day is helpful to take with vit d3. Vit d3 is lowered by free cadmium which is present when stress interferes with its binding. Avoid alcohol, tobaccco, and sleep deprivation. Eat 6 healthy meals, move through the day manage stress skillfully. ...Read more

Vitamin D deficiency: Vitamin d2 gets converted to the active form of vitamin d3 in your blood stream. It is ok to take either. You will still see an elevation of your vitamin d levels if you took d2 or d3. ...Read more

Had Vit D tested, low at 29. The 1, 25 dihydroxi D2 level says <4. What does that mean, less than 4? Calcium normal. Magnesium 1.8. I get fasiculations

Vitamin D: A vitamin D level of 29 is not low.
Go to your pharmacy and purchase over-the-counter vitamin D tablets either 1000 or 2000 mg per tablet - your choice. They are not expensive - much less expensive than a vitamin D lab test. ...Read more
