I suffer from Pemphigus Vulgaris> Does anyone suffer with this condition? I have been suffering for just over 2 years and am currently on heavy medication. I tried taking high does of Vitamin D recently and started off with 30,000ius and then gradually went up to 70,000ius daily for approx. 2 months and have since found out that my blood levels are off the chart(536nmo/l ) so I stopped taking it until it comes down. Could anyone advise on the right dose as I have read that Vitamin D helps the immune system, or could even cure such conditions. I'm so desperate to come off the medication as it is affecting my health . It's bad enough with the condition. The Consultant wants me to go on Rituximab as it's the last resort as the other meds didn't work, but I am reluctant to try the new drug . I have started slowly weaning off the steroids under my Consultant's care but am afraid that the symptoms will get worse like they did before when I reduced the dose. I just want to take a healthier approach rather than stay on these awful drugs. So Please I would appreciate anyone who has the same condition, or is aware of to give me some sound advise. Look forward to your reply.. Many thanks.
