I wanted to know approximately how long would it take a vitamin D3 level of 11g/mL to reach at least 50ng/mL if taking vegan vitamin D3 supplements of 5000IU. This is saying that I am a strict vegetarian so don't get any vitamin D3 from any other major source other than the sun. Thanks.

    Well it supposedly takes 8 weeks https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/i-tested-my-vitamin-d-level-what-do-my-results-mean/.
    Most doctors treat a deficiency with the equivalency of 7000-8000iu a day for 8 weeks. Then they should recheck your levels to make sure they did rise adequately. After that then probably a maintenance dosage of 5000iu a day can be used.
