So 112 nmol/l is equal to 44 ng/ml. At the Vitamin D Council we promote a level of 50ng/ml (125nmol/l). Most people can obtain that level by taking 5000 iu a day.
If you did not have a disease already, I would say take a little more Vitamin D to get your level a little higher but it is really good compared to what it was when you started. Since you do have MS you may want to aim higher in the range. The upper end of the range is 100ng/ml or 250 nmol/l. It is safe to take an upper level of 10,000iu a day. There is a doctor in South America that is having success with high amounts of Vitamin D and MS patients.
I am not a doctor or scientist, just a member of the VDC. If it was me though, I would take a higher amount and see if it changes any of my symptoms. Hope this helps! More questions just ask! Make sure you keep up the walks outside. Sunshine may also have benefits beyond Vitamin D!
Hi IAW I shall do that. Thank you so much. Kind regards.

Try 7500iu over the next 8 weeks. If your progression does not decrease, then go to 6000iu after that. By all means, if you start feeling worse at any point, then go back to a higher amount of D. I t…

We at the VDC promote taking a minimum of 5000 iu a day. That will get most people to a blood level of 50 ng/ml. But you will not know if that is the case unless you test your levels. So no 2000 iu i…

With a level of 31 and those symptoms, I have to assume, at the moment, that your level is being measured as nmol/l and not ng/ml. Country in which you live would also tell me how it was measured. It…
