Course of 60,000iu vitamin D

Postby gibbo82 » Tue Feb 04, 2014 8:24 am

Ok so my vitamin d levels are still low after the specialist at the hospital tested my levels again & he has put me on a 8 week course of 60,000iu vitamin D once a week.

I'm just wondering taking this much in one go can it cause any side effects? I did not think to ask the specialist while I was there! Doh :/

Hi there :)
I've recently completed 8 weeks of high dose vitamin D with no side effects other than less pain! Has your doc checked your magnesium & calcium levels too as they are all interlinked?

Have been recommended to get my Vint D levels checked and if necessary to be put on high therapeutic dose. Would be interested to hear how you get on.
Great to hear that it seems to cut down pain.

I've just started the course an hour ago, will reply when I've completed the 8 weeks. Vitamin D level was 23. After I've completed the course I need to continue with Adcal d3

vitamin D also promotes calcium absorption so be a might great time to ensure (with GP approval obviously [and obviously assuming you don't already?) that you are on a nice multi-vitamin or somethin to ensure you are reaping all the lovely benefits of being depleted in vitamin D by feeding those bones, nice and strong and such :)
