My wife with Hashimoto and the initiall D3 level of 21 ng/ml after 4 months of vit D3 supplementation, 5000 IU, have only 31 ng/ml after the second blood test.
I have (her husband) initialii 23 ng/ml after 4 months with 5000 IU have 39 ng/ml.
Generally we have wanted to achieve the level about 60 – 70 as it is advisable on this site.
We are planing to but d3 10 000 IU however I wonder what could be the reason of such lower increase of d3 in my wife's blood ?
Could someone please explain that to me, Is taking d3 with hashimoto patients advisable at all?
