I recently found out that I have low Vitamin D (26) and have tried to take 5000 IU of Vitamin D and 2000 IU of Vitmanin D. After take big the supplements (each for 2 days ) and three weeks apart, my skin began to itch and I started to have a burning sensation. I meet with primary this week to discuss it. If I am having an allergic reaction to the Vitamin D what is the best way to get the necessary amount. I should not I live in the Pacific Northwest. I have been experimenting muscle pain and some spasms so would like to begin to raise the levels as soon as possible. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Well you might be allergic to the inactive ingredients in it. Biotech’s Vitamin D is “void of dyes, talc, binders, artificial colors and synthetic flavors.” So you could try that. Before you try that one though go to https://www.vitamindwiki.comOverview+Rare+Allergic+reaction+to+vitamin+D and read Harry’s list. The first one is lack of magnesium “might” be the issue. It is not one of the classical signs of not enough magnesium but stranger things have happened and most people are magnesium deficient. (You can still be deficient even if a blood test is within range.) Vitamin D uses a lot of magnesium. I have also seen people with low Vitamin D have low B12 and as I found out recently, it can also cause other B Vitamins to go low even years later after starting Vitamin D.
    There is also a “vegan D3” not D2 and maybe that might work but I really have nothing to back that up in respect to “allergy”.
    So if none of the above works and you are truly allergic but do not get these symptoms if you go out in the sun, then the answer is a sunlamp/tanning bed. (At the top of the page in the “banner” is Sperti.
    If you figure out what works, come back and let me know!

      Sorry I wanted to add that Harry also had this at his website https://www.vitamindwiki.com/Woman+with+rare+allergy+to+vitamin+D+was+desensitized+in+a+single+day+%E2%80%93+Dec+2016.

      Thanks so much for your response. I have had all blood work done and all my Vitamin Levels were good. The two different IUs were completely different brands with different ingredients. Your suggestions are incredibly helpful and that s for the link to Harry’s website. I am certain my primary (who is wonderful) may suggest a rx of high levels of IU and I fear the awful burning and how long it may last. Truly appreciate your time and suggestions.

    In the USA a prescription amount of 50,000iu of Vitamin D is usually D2 and not D3. This you should try and avoid.
    Vitamin D also has other “co-factors” which are listed here at http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/. Could be you are low in one of these.
