    Vitamin D optimal range???


    Well I went to a endo and found out I was deficient in vitamin d level being Vitamin D (25-OH)TOT 21 ng/ml range 32-100 LOW.I was prescribed 50,000 iu vitamin d twice a week.How long do you think it will take for me to get in to optimal range.I've been taken them for 4 weeks already I'm on my second batch of vit d now.I want them optimal cause I hear men with high Vit d also have high Testosterone free and total.

    Time will tell I retest dr patient in 6 weeks to get levels of around 70 which is healthy levels. If Cfs then 90 since they are vitamin d receptors are down regulated usually

    I'm going a year and 1/2 and still don't have an optimal D level. I was prescribed the 50,000 iu as well, but once a week only. Along with that spend as much time as I can in the sun. With that, my levels still barely cross 20.

    Your in michagen. Above 40th parellel and little sun. You are not properly absorbing vitamin D because you are not absorbiong fats properly. Switch to emulsifed form and watch it sky rocket at 8,000-10000 ius a day retest in 6 weeks.

    The recommended levels have been constantly changing/rising for several years. 20 ng is terribly low, 50 is probably the best current miinimum and 70 some now even say 80 is a good target level. I took 10,000 IUs ED for two years and couldn't get past 50. At 15,000 IUs I quickly made it up there and I feel great. I'm assuming of course, that your 50,000 IUs are D3 and not synthetic D2.
