NASA advising trapped Chilean miners should take Vitamin D

Fantastic! Great to see a government agency recommending higher Vitamin D intake. I wonder what dosage was recommended?  Read article courtesy of Americas on MSNBC.

Upwards of 70 percent of American adults are vitamin D deficient or insufficient

More doctors are testing patients for vitamin D deficiency. I like this article linked here. My level is currently 75 and I would like to get above 80. Nice to be off of all medication and maybe I can stay off. Read how I did it in my previous posts.

FNP

I have been referring to my Family Nurse Practitioner as my "Doc" but I want everyone to know that she is a Family Nurse Practitioner. She has helped me more than any Doctor has in the last 25 years so I think she will always be "Doc" to me. It amazes me to no end, how much she has changed my life in such a short time. I struggled with getting doctors, any doctor to listen to me and do something, ANYTHING! My FNP did listen and I believe she saved my life.
