I’m new here, I have a 9yrs old boy with high functioning autism, lately he’s doing very bad in many of the symptoms of autism so I start researching ways to help him and arrived to this question of the Vitamin D, I have read a lot of this in the last week, so to make a long story short I decided to give my son 3000ui vit D in gummies until the D3plus arrives (I live in Canada) and then start 5000ui, I don’t have blood tests for him, here in Canada it’s impossible to get them without a doctor’s prescription and his pediatrician says that I’m going to hurt him with that dose but accepted to ask for a test in a couple of months, in the meantime I will do this even if she doesn’t want. I hope 2 capsules of D3Plus it’s ok to start until his blood test in 2 or 3 months(He’s 51 pounds).
I will tell you what happens.
