Too much Vitamin D?
I have been taking Tropinal XP (not too impressed) contains 5000IU per day
Added D-POL about two weeks in and it contains 4000IU per day
Lots of conflicting information out there....
Is 9000IU too much?
What is too much?
There is MS in my family so I take about 4000IU per day (total).

LEF has found an upper limit of 100 ng/dl to be the maximum desireable level of D. While I dont think most people would exceed this on 9000iu of additional D, I could see scenarious where someone might.

That daily is not only unhelpful, but harmful in a healthy individual. Actually, is a ridiculous amount for a healthy individual to take that has relatively normal ranges without supplementation.
My wife is a doc and this is her area. Unless you are elderly, postmenopausal and under a doctors supervision, you are only getting risk and no benefit at that amount. New studies are reflecting risk of hypertension and hardening of arteries for people ingesting large doses of supplemental D, and this is a very large dose for a healthy person with relatively normal ranges.

LEF states optimal blood Vit D levels are in the range of 50 to 100 ng/ml. At 100 ng/dl is when they feel there are some possibilities of adverse outcomes. Labcorp's "normal" range is 30 to 100. And it goes without saying that we all are different, but for me taking 50,000 iu a week my blood levels were 58.1 ng/ml.

Candidly, a lot of doctors don't understand D very well and new research isreflrcting too much is worse than too little. 10,000 ius prescribed by doctors should only being going to geriatrics, post menopausal or a series of bloods confirming need. You take what ever you want, but realize there us no benefit and you may be giving yourself hypertension and cardio vascular issues long term. Seriously, there are a lot of jacked people on here who take supps like this thinking it's good cause bro science says. Then you see some if these same guys asking got supps to help with libido while in there 20s because they are so jacked up.
I fortunate to have a combo endo dietician wife that works with professional athletes to rehab after Dr. andrews and his staff gets done with them and I was a professional athlete under Dr R. Morgans care for more years than I like to admit. She is one of the premier Eropean trained endos in the world who has worked with Russian and now US Olypmic teams since 1980s. Haha, the money I have spent to learn what I am passing on . . .
