In brief: Tess

The fda & mayo studies seem 2 place the mdr 4 vit d @ 800-1000iu/ day.
Some say up 2, 2000iu. So i c no prob with 2000iu, that's what i take. Above that u r paying more 2 color ur urine. Mayo saw hyper vitaminosis d after months of 50, 000iu/day so the body is good at getting rid of excess vit d. U need 2 follow the rec of ur treating physician.
