Yesterday you advised me on one of the posts to check how much vitamin D was in my multi and calcium tablets.  Well, today when I was taking my multi I put my glasses on and guess what.  The multi had been "improved" by increasing the vitamin D to 1000IU.  I think it was 400 before.  So, I've stopped taking an additional 1000IU tablet of D until my doctor checks my level.
Thanks a lot for the advice.  Checking the labels is something we should all do.  I use to, then my vision got so bad I don't read labels as much.

Thank you for the thank you!  LOL  You really have to check frequently.  You see, they are discoverying that the daily requirement of vitamin D is actually low.  I read an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) about two years ago and they were suggesting that people need 1,000 IU a day.  I talked to my doctor about it and he checked my vitamin level and it was low!  So I've been taking a lot of D.

I also take calcium supplements with D.  I checked them last month and they raised the amount of vitamin D, also!  So, I added what I was getting in my multiple vitamin and in my calcium and then added the vitamin D supplement to reach the amount he wants me to take.  Read labels occasionally.  They can sneak this stuff up on you!  LOL
