    Kerrilyn, based on our sensitivity to meds I don't think I'd take the 50,000 IU. I know many physicians prescribe the huge doses of Vitamin D, but my doc was leary of doing that with me and with the D3 specifically. She prescribed 5,000 IU every other day. My level was 7 and it came up to 23 within 6 weeks. I haven't had it rechecked even though I should have at 6 months. I did just recently reduce the dose on my own to 2,000 IU once a week (until I have it checked again) since I have been on it now 6 months Toxic level is supposedly 200.

    I purchased 5,000 IU capsules from ProHealth online at Amazon. 90 capsules were $11.95 (I think).

    I've taken a course of Vit D (D3) as my test results were low;

    12 nmol/L (50-150)

    I think the Vit D has increased my bile production. I haven't added anything else that could've caused it. Not something I want as I have a stomach ulcer and severe reflux. Has anyone else had this happen? Or can anyone suggest any links that might explain this? Thanks.

    could be.
    I also have problems with too much bile. Can also be caused by taurine, glycine, curcumin. coffee, ginger, dandelion, artichoke and some other supplements. If you know of something to REDUCE bile, let me know...
    taking calcium supplements or soluble fiber can help bind bile in the gut.

    I take Vit D3 drops. Mine was VERY LOW. Last blood test showed it was better but not good at all. My doctor upped the drops a bit. We will test again in Dec. I get blood tests every six months for a lot of things.
