Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 is important in many organ functions. Normal blood levels are 60-100 ng/ml, measured as 25-hydroxy vitamin D. Some institutions consider levels above 30 ng/ml as normal.

After treatment of deficiencies, it usually takes six months to a year to replenish levels to normal.

Initial treatment consists of vitamin D3 supplementation at a dose of 5000 IU per day. Vitamin D2, a plant derived supplement is not recommended due to its weaker effect.

After blood levels have become normal, decrease the daily dose to 2000 I.U. daily and re test in six months.
