    Mine is constantly low, but my doctor told me to start taking 1,000 i.u's a day. Suppose to re-check in about 4 months.

    I read in a magazine or heard it on tv about 2 weeks ago that in the summertime, outside with short sleeve shirt and shorts for 15 mins. your body, if healthy, creates 20,000 i.u.'s of Vit. D. I haen't looked to se if I could verify that anywhere, so I plan on confirming this unless someone else already knows for sure.

    UK
    10 minutes of daily sun exposure

    we can only dream of this in the north of the UK, we're lucky to get a few weeks a year of sunshine:(
    my doctor also told me that people who live on the line of the equator don't get osteoporosis regardless of diet.

    High 1,25 d can be a sign of inflammation, but it can also be a sign of low calcium. Ken Lassesen would be the person to 'talk' to, he's recovered 3 times (in 30+) years. He relapsed in 2012, but has been back at work for at least six months, and took 10,000iu's a day even with his 1,25 being high. It came down as he recovered.

    Here's his blog: http://cfsremission.wordpress.com

    "Doctor" Marshall has it backwards, in more ways than one. I personally know a half dozen people who got much worse on his protocol, 2 almost losing kidney function. This was back in 2005-2006, when Marshall was claiming his protocol was a cure for everything under the…sun.

    @dannybex
    thanks for the info danny
    I sort of got what he was saying - that you have to have 1.25 d levels tested regularly when on any sort of meds and supplements to make sure the level is coming down from higher damaging levels.
    difficult to find a lab in the uk but I will ask my doc.

    I find it hard to read long amounts of script so may have got it wrong.
    my problem now is whether to take my weekly vit d supplement 50000iu
    I am worried about my osteoporosis.....but after last weeks viral flare don't want to go back there either.....

    Is that number supposed to have 4 zeros? If so, did a health care practitioner recommend it?

    Your bones need a lot more than calcium and vitamin D. I was recently diagnosed with osteopenia/osteoporosis and my doctor recommended that I take a supplement that contains: Vitamin D3, Vitamin K1 & K2 (MK7), Folic Acid (should be methylfolate), Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Molybdenum, Ipriflavone, and Boron.
