Hi, My Vitamin D 25,Hydroxy came back at 6.7 ng/ml. Two years ago it 17, last year it was 10, and now it's 6.7 ng/ml. I work from home so I'm thinking that could be why, I don't get out all that much. Doctor wants me to take 50,000 IU every week, but I don't like supplements and am wondering if I can just eat food and forfeited juices/milk to get the levels up. I'm been oversleeping like 9-10 hours a day.. Could this level cause that? Thanks

    It’s not the working “at home”, it’s the working “indoors”. Even those that work outside can be deficient.
    Anything at about 10ng/ml or below is the Osteomalacia range ie: adult rickets. At levels below 40ng/ml, your chance for cancer and autoimmune disease increases “dramatically”!
    If you do not like supplements, then why is fortified food OK, it is the same thing? No, foods do not contain enough to keep an adult human healthy. When not deficient, it takes about 5000iu a day to keep an adult weighing 150lbs “healthy”.
    Yes, oversleeping can be caused by low levels.
    You should only take D3 and NOT D2. You should only take Vitamin D on a daily basis and not weekly. It is better for you that way and not a lot of doctors know this. So to improve your levels you should take 8-10,000iu a day for eight weeks. You should then retest to make sure your levels have made it to 50ng/ml or higher. If that has happened then you can probably go to a maintenance dosage of 5000iu a day.
    It is very important to read http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/.
