I was tested for D and found to be VERY low - at 12, this was about
two years ago and I went on prescript
ion strength D, started at 50,000 a week and ended up at 150,000 a week because I just couldn't get my D up to normal. Even had a colonoscopy and endoscopy to see if I had celiac disease which would cause malabsorption and that was normal. Finally, D normalized and now I'm on OTC D, 2,000 a day and will be rechecked tomorrow. Honestly, I cannot say that I feel better since the D is at normal levels, I wish I could say it! But, I know that it is better for me overall to be taking the D. It can have negative effects on your bones, among other things...I think there have also been studies on cancer and low D....anyway, always check with your doctor and have your D level checked before taking it on a daily basis.
