Is it safe to give my 11month baby( vitamin d) drops in winter?

Vitamin D was low 17nmol/l.I took vit D supplement 10,000 IU for 2month it become 156 nmol/l .should I take supplement always ?!or stop¡

Vitamin D was low 17nmol/l.I took vit D supplement 10,000 IU for 2month it become 156 nmol/l .should I take supplement always ?!or stop¡

Depends on sun exp.: 156 nmol/l = 62 ng/ml which is just where you want it (optimal levels are 50-80). But if you stop the levels will likely decline, so it seems wise to continue 10,000 iu/day. The only other way to get significant amounts of D is via exposure to mid-day sun without use of sun screen. If you don't get sun, then it is wise to continue supplementation.

Do I stop producing testosterone when I medicate with tostrex? In that case I cannot boost the production in the gym and with vitamin d and zink?

Depends on how much: Where are you getting this from? Tostrex was renamed fortigel about 10 years ago. Too much of any testosterone preparation could shut off the hypothalamic pituitary testicle axis and cause low endogenous testosterone and sperm. Neither vitamin d nor zinc boost testosterone. ...Read more

No: Vitamin d absorption depends on a lot of things. It is also affected by sun exposure. I always tell my patients to take additional supplement in the winter time when the sun may not be as strong. Also other things may interfere with the absorption. But i fo not feel it is indicative of a parathyroid problem. ...Read more

Sodium levels saturday was 132 today 129 why would they drop? I do not drink water my co 2 is 21.0 vitamin d 33. Did have fatty liver now it is normal

Causes of low sodium: Although both are low they may not produce symptoms but anti-diruetic hormone secretion rather than water intake is the likely cause. Since you have high cholesterol, high bp, and have had your gallbladder removed your metabolism is not in balance. Optimize your life style by eating 6 equal healthy meals with 6 servings of fresh vegetables and at least one apple a day spread out through the day. ...Read more
