    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out! Was your level 81.6 ng/ml or nmol/l? Also, are your currently supplementing with vitamin D?

    If your level is 81.6 ng/ml, that is just above the recommended range of 40-80 ng/ml. This level will not increase your risk of vitamin D toxicity (which occurs when levels reach over 150 ng/ml), but research hasn’t shown that maintaining levels this high will provide an added health benefit.

    Here is a link to more information regarding vitamin D and Hashimoto’s that I think you will find helpful:

    I hope this helps!
