Reply To: What is the safest way to quickly increase a low vitamin D level more quickly? I've heard about doing 50,000 units once a week followed by a maintenance dose.
Any information on vitamin D and brain tumors?
Thanks for any insight.
There would be some information that would make it easier for me to try and give you a direction to go in.
If you know your actual Vitamin D level that would help. Knowing your weight or if you weigh a lot more than 150lbs. (If you weigh more, you have to take more.)
Never take Vitamin D once a week, rather just take a higher daily amount when you are correcting a deficiency and then go to a lower maintenance dosage once you know the deficiency has been corrected.
So doctors usually prescribe 50,000iu once a week which is about 8000iu a day. Using 10,000iu a day is perfectly fine. Only take D3 and NOT D2. (Again weight is a factor.) This should be done for a minimum of 8 weeks before retesting. It takes 8 weeks on any given amount of Vitamin D to know what your level will be on that given amount.
I encourage everyone to read http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/.
Sorry do you mean benign or cancer on the brain tumor? There is no specifics on cancerous brain tumors but a lot of information on low Vitamin D levels and cancers in general.
More questions, just ask.
