My vitamin D level has been low for a long time at below 50. I have recently raised it to 96 nmol/L and am beginning to feel better in many ways. My question is will increased D3 levels help with Non alcoholic fatty liver?

    Increased D3 levels should help with non-alcoholic fatty liver because there is a connection between low levels and severity.
    A level of 50nmol/l equals 20ng/ml and 96nmol/l equals 38ng/ml. We here at the Vitamin D Council recommend a minimum level of 50ng/ml (125nmol/l). The upper end of the range is 100ng/ml (250nmol/l). Since you already have a medical issue you may want to keep your level in the upper part of the range.
    Most average weight people of 150lbs, have to take 5000iu a day to reach a level of 50ng/ml.
