Why would my dr prescribe vitamin d 50000 units?

Why would my dr prescribe vitamin d 50000 units?

Low vitamin D: I prescribe this for my patients; 50, 000iu vitamin d is used to treat vitamin d deficiency, which was probably discovered in bloodwork you did. This high dosage is taken once a week x 8 or 12 weeks or so, then people are usually able to start a regular daily vitamin d pill after that. ...Read more

Blood test showed vitamin d deficiency. Why'd dr prescribe 1 pill (50, 000 iu) per week? A smaller dose 7 days a week would be much easier to remember!

That is an option: Vitamin d deficiency has become increasingly common. Taking 10, 000 units of vitamin d every day is a very reasonable approach as well. It is best to take vit d3 rather than vit d2. A cause of low vit d3 is stress induced activation of free intracellular cadmium which breaks down vit d. Doing other things to lower stress and inflammation will improve health as well. ...Read more

Multiple sclerosis may be caused by vitamin d deficiency , why the doctor prescribe corticosteroid ? That have anti-vitamin d .

Causes of MS: It is not right to think vitamin D deficiency causes MS, but it seems a healthy level of vitamin D helps to prevent symptoms of MS in some people. There are several reports about this, some clinical trials are in progress. Corticosteroid medicine is often used temporarily to stop relapses of MS. It's effects on vitamin D are not relevant, the benefits of using it for a short time are better. ...Read more

Why would a rheumatologist prescribe Fosamax , plaquenil , calcium with vitamin d for systemic lupus ? Is this the right treatment for moderate lupus

Why would a rheumatologist prescribe Fosamax , plaquenil , calcium with vitamin d for systemic lupus ? Is this the right treatment for moderate lupus

Not unusual but...: Placquenil is a standard treatment ; vit d is helpful in autoimmune disease ; can prevent osteoporosis (as can calcium). Those with lupus are at increased risk of osteoporosis (esp. If put on steroids) but it is questionable if Fosamax (alendronate) is helpful for preventing rather than treating it. I personally question Fosamax (alendronate) but would add vit. K- see http://bit.Ly/1a48ofs see my comments for other ideas:. ...Read more

GI problem?: Based on the low levels of several vitamins, I would be concerned about some form of malabsorption syndrome. Do you have chronic diarrhea? Pernicious anemia from low B12? Osteomalacia from low Vit D? You probably need to take some levothyroxine (but will you absorb this?). Sounds like your doctor is giving you vitamins, which is good, but what is the cause of all this? ...Read more

My vitaman d level is 10 nmol/l what dosage vitamin d shall i take my dr prescribed me 800iu twice aday ?

Recommend more!: Many authorities say most adults need to take 5-8, 000 iu of vit d3 a day to achieve optimal levels (though less may be needed in summer months if you get mid-day sun without protection). Some advise 10, 000 iu/day for 3 months if your level is low. Toxicity has not been reported with doses of 10, 000 iu or less, but it is wise to recheck blood levels periodically.
