Reply To: My husband who is 43 has been taking 100,00 IU of d for a year and his levels have not risen. He works outside for a living so he gets plenty of sunshine. Any suggestions or reasons why someone would not absorb vitamin d?
He was taking 100,000iu a day For a year and still could not get it to raise above 7. When he changed drs and the new dr saw the dosage he was taking and after looking over his charts he immediately told him to quit taking the vitamin d bc it was not working and could be very dangerous bc vitamin d is fat soluable and is stored in the body.
He is having issues w joint inflammation and pain, skin problems, and has a hard time getting up and staying awake. Basically everything hurts. We feel if he could get this vitamin d situated that it is the root of most of his issues.
