ho high is high Vit D?

The Dr wants me to start 10, 000 per day of vit d-3.   I am concerned that is too high.   Hasanyone been on this dose and for how long?  did it affect your liver?

 

 

Does it go through the liver p-45 pathways?

I've been on 6,000 for quite a while and that doesn't seem to be enough since I'm still struggling to keep my D levels in the 50's. I could probably safely go higher. I've read it's perfectly safe to take 10,000 for a while, until you get your levels up, then find a maintenance dose. What that maintenance dose would be would depend on how easily you got your levels up. Since it's taken me so long to get my levels up I'd imagine my maintenance dose will stay fairly high, 6,000-7,000.

And I take 10,000 a day.   It takes that much to maintain my level in the upper eighties.  Within three months of dropping to seven or eight thousand, my level drops to the sixties.

You asked in your other post about gum disease and root canals.  My husband had really bad gums and then did sixteen months on our protocol with about sixteen pulses of flagyli.  His gums are incredibly better, but he has had several root canals.  He is always on antibioticsi after.

I take 15,000iu daily. I remember reading something here on the site about 50,000iu or more being 'high'. I wouldn't worry about taking 10,000iu/daily, but I would ramp up, starting with a partial dose and easing upward.

But the 50,000 is, I believe, Vit D2, given by your doctor once a week.  It is a plant derivative, and the body has to convert it to D3.  D3 is much more straight-forward.  There are some truly wonderful articles on this site, thanks to Red.  You can find almost anything on the Vit D page.
