I'm sorry you had such a miserable weekend PP, but I'm glad you're on the mend now.

Thanks, Ruthiegirl. It was miserable. I barely drove for 1 mile each way to get some Mexican food (compliant, of course) I wanted. Before that, I was so breathless, I was constantly dizzy!

Vitamin d deficiency induced asthma is scary!

I am back to 20,000 i.u. DAILY after taking 5,000 i.u. daily and drinking coffee. Coffee depletes vitamin D. !


I never heard that coffee depletes vitamin D. Got a reliable source to back up that statement?
20,000 a day is a lot of D.  I hope you get your levels checked. You don't want to overdose on D. It's just as bad as a defiency. It could have been a coincidence, thinking the 20,000 made you feel better. Be careful.

I found articles in laypeoples' terms that mentioned coffee depleting vitamin D from the body. However, in actual scientific terms, caffeine (especially from coffee) affects vitamin d receptors in the body.

http://www.livestrong.com/article/510001-does-caffeine-deplete-vitamin-d-in-the-body/

I got my levels checked a while back and it was at 33. I was still fatigued, etc. and was required to take rx D2 along with D3. I stopped taking D2 after reading this forum. I know my levels dropped when I was taking 5,000 daily because I had bone pain, fatigue, increased appetite, excess sleep, allergies, and asthma. As soon as I took more vitamin D, my body perked up and the asthma/allergies stopped as if I were a wilted plant that was given water!

I wish it were just coincidence but this already happened twice. Every time I tried to lower my vitamin D intake, my body flipped out within 2.5 weeks. After being really sick this weekend, I do not have any desire to try and lower my dosage for a while. I am very aware of overdose symptoms so definitely keeping my eye out for them.

Not in my body....coffee is a diamond for me     It also says "may" interfere

I bet you've been deficient for so long that your body still hasn't reached the saturation level yet. Just saying.. get it checked every 6 months, until you get to a level that is safe and you feel good.

Well, coffee is a black dot for me and I feel it's estrogenic effects within 10-20 minutes. Coffee was the only "anti-vitamin D" food I consumed. It was only during my coffee drinking days that I felt deficiency symptoms. So, for me, I know that coffee affects my receptors.

I envy you, MF, since coffee is a bennie and does not affect you the way it affects me. I was always on steroids because of allergy and asthma which depletes vitamin D. Like you said, I was probably quite deficient before I started to really get sick and it will take a while for the vitamin to saturate and bring my level up to par.

And B's can have a lot of Dairy..My B son improved his health from believe it or not, Carnation Instant Breakfast! It has a lot of vitamins in it! It helped him gain weight, and now I have a hard time getting him to take a vitamin but he'll drink CIB.

This Vitamin D issue that passionprincess has reminds me of the problem I have with taking more than a small amount of Vitamin B-12. More throws me for a complete  loop, and I have never seen anyone yet with the same problem. No one else in my family has it either. I wish I knew the answer to it because I feel that I need more B-12.

If it was based on my feeling I needed more, I would be happy. I feel sick when I try to cut down because my levels are so low. I am so sick of swallowing pills.

I have felt I needed more B-12, but couldn't live with more, and I was not happy about it! Just shows how we are all different to some degree or other! But since I have been taking Trehalose Complex, I don't actually feel that I need more B-12 so much. I think TC is helping my body utilize everything better!

I can't take a lot of B-12 either Spring. I was trying the Trivita 500 mcg of B-12 sublinguinal and it triggard migraines!  I was surprised. I  have to take under 500 mcg. I take about 200-350 a day. I sleep better when I take it. Weird. I should have ample stores of it. I must have some kind of genetic absorption issue because I have trouble absorbing iron and my B son has the same problem.

There's only one comment. I don't know who that person is but, I don't take my D with my morning coffee anyway. Odd, when I tried taking D in the morning because Dr. Oz said it gives energy, my D levels dropped.  I attributed it to not eating a large enough meal because I read that the body absorbs the D supplement better with a big meal.  I went back to taking the 5,000 ius at night. Dr. Oz said taking D at night would disrupt sleep. I take it with dinner and I don't have a problem falling asleep.

Spring, how interesting! It must be frustrating feeling like you need more of something because it is helpful but it makes you sick at the same time. I am glad you found TC, though. I have been reading great things about here!

The only thing I can say is that when we base information on facts and now hear that
Vitamin D blood tests are often inaccurate, all I can conclude is that there is more to learn.  Better testing is obviously required.  I'm also wondering if co-factors that are necessary for D absorption need to be measured as well.

I take 100,000 IU every four weeks and that seems to keep my vitamin D just within the normal range.
It's hard to find a way to manage this vitamin, it's such an important element yet quite difficult to stabilize in my food intake.

I usually need to take 10,000 in the morning and 10,000 in the afternoon to keep my levels stable. I have been taking 20,000 in the morning for the past two days. I feel run down by evening if I do not split my doses.

Does vitamin D formed by showering sunlight really is absorbed after 48 hour?

Is it a hoax?

Yes, three days ago. Got back home the day before yesterday.

I'm OK, still recuperating. Thanks for asking

Here's a link to an explanation. It figures because 'man' was not meant to wash with soap. Our anscestors didn't jump into the shower every day, so we evolved with the oils on the skin taking the time to be absorbed and plus the fact that 'man' was in the sun daily, not like we are now, indoors daily, that's the reason why it takes 48 hours.. but no need to worry right if we get sun exposure daily? I don't wear sunscreen. I only wear it if I'm at the beach for an extended time...like 6-8 hours in the sun.

And its base on a 25 year research.
And until now there is no one researching about it.

Seems vitamin D supplement is very important even if your in a sunny country.

Because when I sweat I really I have to clean my body.

Thank you mayflower.
