I have been diagnosed with gastritis. However i'm still confused about what caused gastritis in me. i'm 27 male. I had vitamin D deficiency. So doctors prescribed me to take calcium pills with vitamin D pills. I have been taking 60,000 IU vitamin D pills

In brief: Gastritis, Stress

I understand your concern Gastritis can be due to: Long-term use of Aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and Naproxen (Aleve, Anaprox) Excessive alcohol use H.
Pylori Bacteria Stress 60,000 IU vitamin D. is very high dose. It may increase calcium levels in Hyperparathyroidism and Tuberculosis which may result in kidney stones. See a Gastroenterologist and Internist. Psychiatrist for Therapy.

Calcium can reduce Vitamin D3 absorption by 50%, as can obesity (depots in adipose/fat tissue), as can not taking it at the same time with eating good fats like avocado or nuts, oils. So 60,000iu/day is too high, but okay if taken per week. Have your doctor recheck levels in a month to see how much you've you've improved, and readjust. You must be higher than 32. 32-50 is safe! Good luck!
