Reply To: Hi Iaw,
I have been taking 60000 iu d3 per week since 9 months but still my upper back pain and neck stifness not cured.My level was 9 and has increased over 150 now.
Does it take so long to cure?
Sarth I am going to guess that they lost your original posting when they upgraded the website.
I would have to guess that with this length 9 months of time and your level, that your symptoms may be from something else and/or permanent. Without the original posting, in front of me, did you have other symptoms and if so I assume they are all better?
Another study just came out that shows taking a large amount on a “weekly” basis may not be the best thing. That smaller amounts each day are better. The researchers stated “These data imply that lower doses of vitamin D3 ingested frequently may be most appropriate and gradual withdrawal from supplementation as opposed to rapid withdrawal may be favorable.”
So I would cut back to 5000iu and take it everyday. If any symptoms that did go away, come back, then come back and tell me.
