In brief: 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.
