Reply To: Hi , I am suffering from very severe crohn's disease and saw some good results when supplementing 20000 I.U daily, very much magnesium (i.v.), vitamin K2, zink and boron. I've been doing this for 6 weeks.
However I still have to take prednisone 10 mg and other immunesuppressive medications because otherwise I would get very high fever (Before starting supplementation I had to take 20 mg prednisone not to get high fever and then I noticed that magnesium in combination with D and K2 dramatically reduced this overshooting reaktion).
I would like to know if there is any correlation between prednisone intake an vitamin D-25 metabolism?
What I've also have found is that there are controversal facts about vitamin A interaction with vitamin D. Some studies have found synnergetically positive action of both on overactive immunity. Other say that vitamin A is contraproductive and that Vitamin A blocks the action of vitamin D on vitamin D receptor. What is your opinion in this question?
