Reply To: How fast can D drops raise blood level? My daughter was hospitalised at 4 months old, and had her vitamin D tested after 5 days of supplementation with 400iui of vitamin D. We had just started giving her D drops at home sporadically over the few weeks prior to her hospitalization.
Her level when tested was 53 ng/ml (132.5 nmol)
My own vitamin D level is 5.6 ng/ml (14.0 nmol).
I feel like they held off on testing her for as long as they could (5 whole days), so her level would be within normal range.
They claimed she had a buckle fracture in her tibia (completely asymptomatic). We have hired our own medical experts and they're telling us it was likely physiologic and not fracture related at all. I call bullshit on the hospital and believe she WAS vitamin D deficient before her hospitalization.
Her calcium level was 2.64 nmol
Her Alakaline Phos was 328 U/L
Her Parathyroid Hormone was 15 ng/L
