VDC test kit slider
HI! I am currently 22 weeks pregnant and found out I am very deficient in vit D -16.6nmol- I was recommended . Obviously I am very keen to correct the deficiency but would like to know if there is any information on safety of high dose vit D supplements in pregnancy . I was recommend to take the following 3 sprays of DLux3000 (9,000IU) per day for one month

    No, 9000iu a day is not too much! You are very deficient.
    It is very important to have adequate amounts and levels of Vitamin D while pregnant.
    I would hope that after 1 month, they will check your levels again but it usually takes two months on the same dosage. We recommend a “healthy” level of 50ng/ml (125nmol/l)as a minimum. If I were you I would seriously consider taking 9000iu your entire pregnancy OR go no lower than 6000iu a day.
    So you really need the 9000iu.
    You should read the following for more information https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/vitamin-d-during-pregnancy-and-breastfeeding/. I realize it says we recommend 4-6000iu a day but since it was written, some doctors and studies say more is needed.
