very confused about dosage, help!!
I had blood work a couple of weeks ago. My vitamin d level was 29, so my Dr said to take 2,000 iu of d3 twice a day.
I called back a few days later to ask if low d can cause fatigue, irritability, anxiety, depression and muscle aches. He then said to take 5,000 iu twice a easy instead.
I have one kidney, but he said he will recheck my d level and kidney function in June.
Is 5,000 iu twice a day a high dose?
I am so scared of toxicity.
I don't know if taking 5,000 in once a day will even help.
Also, is this the same as taking prescription d at 50,000 iu twice a week? I have been on that before.
This situation has caused me tremendous anxiety. I need advice!
