Hey, I just got my D checked for the first time ever.. and I'm 81 ng/mL.  The nurse said that was the highest she'd ever seen. lol

I've been taking about 8,000IU daily for a year, and have never felt better.

Vitamin D is like balm to the old and achy folks. I haven't been taking extra lately - I do that when it is cloudy for a few days - and I decided a hour or so ago to take more, and I already feel better. I don't guess I am necessarily old but when you ache you certainly feel that way!

Eric, that's wonderful news.  This thread has been so helpful as a guideline for me and I'm learning about the range I want to be in.

Thank you all for the information.  I'm still looking for answers on how quickly you started to feel "normal" after increasing the dose.  You all speak of your numbers, but not the experience.


After spending a long time outside in the sun, all my joints immediately stop hurting. So I suppose you can expect results pretty quick in how you feel. I know I do even after taking the supplement. I don't know about the numbers, though. I'm getting mine checked soon.

Show-off...   

I'm taking vegan D3, that I don't even know if it actually works or not..   It's 5,000 ius
I still haven't gone. I was toying with spending $65 on a mail test. I hate waiting for 2 hours just to have blood drawn. I might go next week..

Eric what brand are you taking?

NOW.. cheap and good quality, IMO.  I can tell when I take too much, though.  More than 10k and I start to get twitchy.

I broke out in a rash from Now.     I must be allergic to wool.  As soon as I get some dinero, I'm getting the fish oil. I don't have any problem with fish oil D.

MF,

I'm also taking NOW D3 2,000mg per day.  I do have a rash on my neck and I'm wondering if the D3 is the cause?  Is your rash itchy?  Mine sure is.

As I posted earlier I'm also using Vegan fish oil.  I also feel these supplements take a little time to get working in one's system.

Haven't gotten mine tested yet for D3 but Eric's is sure impressive!!!!

Non BTD Source, FYI

Secondary dentine, a less well-organized form of tubular dentine, is produced throughout life as a patching material where cavities have begun, where the overlying enamel has been worn away, and within the pulp chamber as part of the aging process. Sometimes when cavities occur, production of secondary dentine can "heal" the decayed spot or rebuild portions of the tooth that have worn away. If vitamin D is adequate, secondary dentine will be well calcified. If vitamin D is lacking, dentine will be of poor quality or not present at all.

There is some evidence that the mineralization of dentine may depend on calcium derived from saliva rather than blood; in other words, it is deposited from the exterior rather than the interior of the tooth. The book describes studies by Dr. C. L. Pattison who, working with Mrs. Mellanby, determined that the calcium content of saliva doubled or even tripled when the diet contained adequate vitamin D from cod liver oil...

MF,

I stopped taking the D3 lanolin supplement.  Now I'm going to wait a few days and see if the itchiness subsides.   Are you still taking the dry Vitamin D?

I'm going through an emergency situation in my apartment (not that I couldn't explain but very lengthy to do so)  Anyway, its supposed to be resolved on Monday.  So, it doesn't surprise me that I posted that I am taking a Vegan (fish) oil.  Of course, the reason I switched to Vegan is because of the very fact that it is derived from algae and not fish.

Hi Joy, I'm taking Country Life dry D 1,000ius and about 4 of those a day. I should take more I also have the vegan  Nature's Plus Source of Life Garden D3 which is 5,000 ius.  I have no idea if my body is absorbing these vegetarian D's. I have to get tested next week. I've been broke lately.

MF,

I just stopped today taking the D3 and I already feel that the rash on my neck is subsiding (I hope that's it).  I will step up the dosage on the dry D and see how that works.

PS  You're going to need to add some miracle grow to get that money tree in your back yard to give you a huge harvest, right?  (haha but wouldn't that be great?)

There's no such thing as a "vegan fish oil." What you probably have is a "vegan DHA and/or EPA supplement"; providing the omega 3 fatty acids that are more typically found in fish oils.

That is vegetarian D3?  The question is, does vegetarian D3 work?

Guess I'll see when I get it tested again.  I had been taking 5000 IUs for several months.  Before that I was just taking the store brand from WFs.  Guess I could call me endo and ask his opinion.  In addition to be an endo he also has a Ph'd in Chemistry so he's pretty knowledgeable.

Wanting to see more discussion about bone density and calcium/vit D deficiency please. I know my vit D has been low for a couple of years, so am taking supplements now, and unfortunately I have neglected bone density scans for a while too, and that has come up with osteopenia now..shock horror.
I shall probably start taking Phytocal A soon, but need reminding about which are the calcium rich foods.

After a year of taking vitamin D Blue Bonnet brand fish oil D, 2,000 ius, my level actually dropped to 38.6 !     This is nuts. Last summer I got a lot of sun, and in the fall I was going to a tanning salon. I started up again in March.  This is crazy. I can't believe my level actually dropped. I was suspicious because I got a very bad URI a couple of weeks ago that elderberry didn't work on. It seems I'm not absorbing the fish oil D, not to mention, my LDL went up and my HDL went down from taking all this fish oil. I've stopped the other fish oil.  Anyone else having this problem?
