I've been doing indoor tanning & taking 2000 ius of vitamin d for the last year since my blood work showed I'm vitamin d deficient. I just had blood work done again, & my levels are even lower. I'm also more anemic, so my red blood cells are even lower. Why? Very frustrating….

Hello I am 18 weeks pregnant and my current vitamin d level is only 27ng! The nurse stated that I can safely take 4,000 IU daily but I know having vitamin d deficiency in the past that is not enough. How much can I take to raise my levels to a safe amount to prevent autism/delays in my unborn baby? Is the dosage I took of 10,000 IU daily pre-pregnancy safe?
If you only have supplements to rely on (no sunshine or it’s winter time) than anywhere from 6000-10,000iu is recommended by us and several other organizations. Minimum 6000iu. Since you have d…

I've began to supplement Vitamin d3&k2 combo. D3:3000IE / K2: 45ug. I felt great the first month, my sleep decreased like 2 hours in total by first day and i still felt energized, it further decreased 2 hours after a month and i felt tired, got insomnia for a while so i started use even more magnesium. 1600mg of magnesium citrate&lysin chelate= 486mg elemental, wasn't enough. So i used chloride magnesium and that saved my insomnia so i can fall asleep, that gives probably atleast 2000 elemental with my rub, an ounce gives 3262mg elemental magnesium!. I still have problems sleeping a whole night. I go to bed at 9 and waking up at 3 and are tired, thirsty and having a headache usually. I thought to myself that i got hypercalcemia due to my symptoms. I did use alot of calcium as supplement because i couldn't fall asleep without it either, so i guess my whole mineral supplies are unbalanced to say the least. I did however had no issues with supplements before i introduced vitamin d3 to my diet. Am i sensitive to the type of vitamin d3 in my supplement? Are there different vitamin d3 sources? Should i stick to a lower dose?
I do not know if you will come back to read this. If you figure this all out at some point, I would appreciate if you came back and told me what happened. For example if you use a lower amount of Vit…
