Not able to tolerate vitamin D2/3 orally. I believe I have a allergic reaction to taking pills or capsules because each time I try supplements my lips would swell and can't sleep at night with out interruptions . The adverse affects last for a week and a half and my dosages ranges from 5000iu to 200iu, no matter how low the effects are the same. I live in the north east of the states, tried to get more sun but I don't feel I get enough or stay out long enough to reap the benefits of the ray but I also don't want any chance of skin cancer. Interestingly I was on a trip over seas few years back and I was exposed to the sun all day till the point my skin got a good tan. This is possibly the most time I felt alive physically and mentally but of course when I got back to the states it all went down hill from there. I was wondering if vitamin d injections would be a alternative choice to supplement my low vitamin d levels. Thanks

    For some reason computer system will not let me answer your question. If this message appears you may want to “repost” your question and see if that changes anything.

    Since I am having problems posting, I am going to try splitting the answer. You will know that you have all the information I wrote if it ends with “If you have more questions, let me know.”
    “Lips swelling” sounds more like an allergic reaction. Therefore injections are probably not going to work either.
    There is a “vegan” D3 and there is an example at Nordic Naturals website. It may still cause a reaction, I do not know. Sorry did not include actual link because that may be the issue on why it will not post.

    I would consider getting a sunlamp. At the top of this page should be an ad for “Sperti”. They do have a lamp that will give you the light spectrum for “Vitamin D”. You could also go to a “tanning” parlor 2-3 times a week but you would need to make sure you are using the “right” tanning machine. Some of them just have UVA lights and others have UVB and UVA together. Unless “technology” has changed UVB light bulbs are long and skinny and UVA are “big and round”. A little UVA with your UVB, is not a bad thing.
    Studies show more and more that most skin cancer comes from a lack of sunshine not sunshine causing it.
    If you have more questions, let me know.
