Hello, My wife is homozygous for vdr bsm, and has normal vdr taq. She has been taking 50,000 iu/wk. She has raised her vitamin d level to 35. She is now taking that amt every 4 days. Can someone with that SNP ever hope to achieve a level of 50? Or is it pointless to supplement? One more question, one of the headlines of your articles says resistance training increases vitamin d receptors. Is that true for someone with this defective vitamin d receptor SNP? Thanks, Bill A

    I do not think I can answer your questions but would like to ask….
    How low was her level to begin with before supplementing? How long did it take her to reach the 35ng/ml taking 50,000 iu per week?

    I should have asked the first time around did she have any health issues before starting the Vitamin D and have they gotten better even if her level is not 50ng/ml?
