Find out more information on deficiency, supplementation, sun exposure, and how vitamin D relates to your health.
diagnosed with TNBC, I was recommended a dosage of 50,000 vitamin D3 once a week. Feel uncomfortable taking that high of a dosage. Is it ok to take 10,000 and 100mg of K2 each day? Just need advise as to when I should take vitamin D3 and with what for better absorbption and for directing where the calcium goes. Should it be with food? Do I need a calcium too etc???? Also, what would the side effects be if my body couldn't handle the 10,000 D3??

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….
Since you did not answer some questions, I will have to guess or make suggestions on the information you gave me. Again I will ask are you sure that the tanning salon includes bulbs that contain the …

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…
