OTC D3

Here is a study that concluded some Vitamin D supplements you buy do not contain the amount listed on the label. It is the only study on this I have found so far.

  1. I buy my Vitamin D3 from Costco and found it raised my level quite well. I am currently at 75.

  2. I am curious what supplement you used when getting off your statin drugs. :) I came across your website after learning that my pregnant daughter has a level of 15. The Doc prescribed 50,000 once weekly and 1000 daily. I am concerned this may not be enough. Oddly enough, I tested around 20 last year. I say oddly because I am out in the sun alot and live in t he sunny south. I have had many symptoms all my life but did not know that was the cause. I mean some pretty serious diagnoses. I am still learning, especially after this recent finding with my daughter. Hubby is on statin drugs and has diabetes......time to be tested. Be blessed.

  3. I would bet that your daughter will see a nice increase in her level soon and I am thrilled to hear that her doctor diagnosed her!!! My FNP initially put me on 50,000 weekly as well and I am convinced that, because I was taking the statin, it was somehow blocking the vitamin D. I was only able to get up to the 40s on the prescription. Also, the prescription is D2 and not D3. I used Costco vitamin D3 2000IU and took 4 each day, with a meal for 3 months. Here is my story of how I got off the cholesterol meds. http://vitaminddeficiencysyndrome.blogspot.com/2010/08/i-got-off-of-cholesterol-meds.html
    I have also lost 35 lbs since I started all this and have read that the heavier a person is, the more vitamin D3 it takes to increase your level. Good luck to you and your family. I hope you will all feel better soon and let me know how you are doing!
