I am not a doctor nor a nutritionist and warn you not to do any suggestions contained within this blog site without consulting your primary care physician. You should have a serum vitamin D, 25(OH)D, test as everyone seems to use vitamin D at a different rate depending on active disease and body mass. Most of the vitamin D researchers agree that a level below 40 ng/ml is deficient. The Dietary Supplement Fact Sheet: Vitamin D from the NIH says that below 200 ng/ml is safe. You may have to help educate your doctor because there is no profit in selling sunshine. What doctors learned in medical school about the levels of D are significantly different from the new research.

When the entire population of the world starts practicing serum vitamin D3 levels high enough to significantly affect disease, the entire face of medicine and the medical economy will change. – Mark Pegram
