Re: Vitamin D3 deficient.

Derek,

Yes, the D3 will help but you should also add a K-2 supplement to take at the same time you take the D-3. You will need to take D-3 until your values are to where they should be, but at some point you may be able to lower the dose to about 2000 IU. If I were you I would have the 25 hydroxy test done about every 6 months or so as some people do have difficulty maintaining proper levels. Getting at least 20 minutes of noon day sun on your skin would also be worthwhile.
