Reply To: HI, My wife recently had surgery for primary hyperparathyroidism. A horrible disease that went undiagnosed for what I am guessing a minimum or 3 years. Surgery was successful but she install recovering. she is having to deal with a vitamin D deficiency. she has suffered some mental fog and mental function from this disease and she is 2 months post op. My question is this:
As a supplement by prescription, should she be getting Vitamin D2 or Vitamin D3? I am having troubling finding the correct answer as to what the difference and as to which is best for her health and recovery. She is taking vitamin D3 on her own over the counter brand, but when she gets a prescription it's D2. Baffled.
