Question Re: Vitamin D Dihydroxy Lab results are really high

Are you sure those labs are correct?

I was deficient due to malabsorption, my Vit D level was 10. I took a prescription Vit D (50,000 IU) twice a week and after four months my level was 50.

You say you're taking just (one thousand IU) every other day?

Now, if you're taking a prescription (one hundred thousand IU) every other day - wow, that could cause Hypervitaminosis D. It can damage your bones and kidneys.
