You may get multiple answers to your question so you can keep checking back.
Since you just started taking the 10,000 iu a few weeks ago, how much Vitamin D and for how long were you taking it to get the blood level of 46.2 ng/ml? Do you have any health issues?Answered by IAW on January 16, 2015 at 7:43 am

I don’t have any health issues (thank god).
I’ve probably been taking 10,000 IU/day for a month, before that I wasn’t taking anything and I spent most of my time inside.
So I got the blood work done January 13th, and I’d been taking it for about 1 month at 5,000-10,000 IU daily.Answered by AlexanderDavid on January 16, 2015 at 9:03 pm

So if I have this correct, you were not taking anything before, and for about a month you have been taking anywhere from 5-10K and now your blood test after a month gives you a level of 46.2ng/ml!
So instead of adding anymore Vitamin D why don’t you for now stick with a steady 10,000 iu a day and retest in several months. You may be surprised that your level will be higher. If it is not then write back again. Remind us how much you have been taking a day and what blood levels you now have!Answered by IAW on January 17, 2015 at 6:01 am

Lol correct! I wasn’t taking anything for a while. However I had my levels tested maybe a year earlier (early 2013) and I was taking Vitamin D at the time, and my levels were 56 ng/ml. But then I discontinued it almost immediately after that test.
Sounds good! I’ll continue with 10k IU/day for the next 3 months, then retest and see how my levels are.
Thank you!Answered by AlexanderDavid on January 17, 2015 at 5:46 pm

If you are healthy, with no issues, than there is probably not a benefit to go beyond the 40-60ng/ml. For example if you have MS it might benefit you to be at a higher level. If you try a higher level and see no difference between for example 50 and 80, then you should go with the 50. No research done yet says anything higher than the 40-60 is better.Answered by IAW on November 15, 2015 at 5:51 pm
