Hi. I"m a 53 year old male. I've been taking Vitamin D3 5000mg/day for the past three and a half years. i've come up to 83ng/ml from below 30 when i started. What would be a reasonable amount of Vitamin D3 to take now, per day, to maintain this level? I weigh 190lbs. thank you

    Did you mean 5000 “IU”? If so you have taken that amount for 8 weeks or more (3 1/2 years), so to stay at that level you need to continue to take 5000iu a day.

    Yes – 5000 IU – sorry.
    I actually found my labs from 2014 ( i had none done in since fall of 2014). In the summer of 2014 i reached 83mg/nl also, and in the fall i dropped down to 72mg/nl. The entire time i was on 5,000IU/day. So, it looks like if i stay at this dose, i will stay where i am now (although it’s winter now and i’m at 83mg/nl). I will check again in the summer and if it gets higher i suppose i should drop the dosage a bit. Thanks for the feedback.

    It surprises me that you can be that weight and have a level of 83 on only 5000iu. I would suppose though if you had a higher level at the end of summer 2016 and continued with the 5000iu, that in a sense all of it combined, is “seeing you thru the winter”. So in fact would your level still be 83 by the end of February or would it drop some? (Do not test again,I am only thinking out loud.)
    As long as you do not have any symptoms of too much Vitamin D, then I would not worry about it and continue to do what you are doing!
