vitamin d deficiency - amount of vitamin d in multivitamin?

After doing some reading, I'm starting to wonder if I'm among those who have low levels of vitamin D.

But, I'm not sure...I take a multivitamin every day (have been for a couple months now) that has 200% the DV of vitamin D3.

With vitamin D deficiency, I'm assuming what's contained in the multivitamin wouldn't be sufficient?

Re: vitamin d deficiency - amount of vitamin d in multivitamin?

First I would have your Dr. check your vitamin d to see if you are deficient. A normal level is 30 or above.

Many vitamins now are increasing the vitamin D, since there has been so many studies about how vitamin D is important for an adequate immune system. From the studies i have read, if you are deficent, most Dr.s will recommend 1,000IUs/day. Some will recommend higher doses than this.

I would check with your Dr. 1st, since vitamin d is a fat soluble vitamin and can accumulate in tissues and has an upper limit of normal, considered safe.
