About a year and a half ago I was completely bed bound, exhausted, prone to illness and joint pain and had blood tests to reveal I had vitamin D deficiency, I ended up taking supplements for a few weeks at a high dosage and then went down to the recommended daily dosage for every adult which was up until about 6 months ago when I just stopped taking them because I'd forget, recently I've been experiencing the same symptoms so I went to see my doctor to request a blood test, at which point he said I needn't bother with a test and he just prescribed me with a continuous prescription of supplements , I just assumed that it was good news and he could tell I was clearly unwell again…however I've looked into this evening and I feel like I should be concerned because I feel as though it should at least be tested first and because my dosage is only 800iu (d3) daily, and it is my understanding that this is the recommended dose for all adults…I feel like my symptoms may have been brushed to one side and I should've had a blood test and perhaps been given a higher dose…should I go back and request a blood test to be sure my levels aren't too low?

    You said “I ended up taking supplements for a few weeks at a high dosage and then went down to the recommended daily dosage for every adult”. What recommended daily dose did you take, the one we recommend 5000IU? That is the one you should take.
    I would not bother with a test. Since you stopped taking the Vitamin D, that was the problem so you are definitely deficient again. So I would just go back and do the same thing you did the first time. Take a higher amount for a week or two and then drop down and take NO less than 5000iu a day.
