Dear janner, I was taking vitD 1000iu a day & my blood level came up 0. Dr told me maybe i dont absorb it. Dr put me on a RX of 50,000iu of vit D/week ◊4weeks then 2000iu vit D3/day & i have to repeat the labs. I havent finished the 50,000iu yet. I bought dried plums, boiled 4 ◊1 minute, left in hot water for 2-3 minutes,eat twice a week & having no gi problems with the D now.
