I went to a nutritionist a few years ago who had me check my vit D and it was very low .... it's been good for a while now, but I always take 2000 iu a day. Didn't prevent me needing surgery and all.....

I wonder if vit D could be one of the reasons that IBD is more common in Northern climates .... makes sense.....

I looked up the author, boy he looks young.....

thanks for posting.

My vitamin d is also low. I read that vitamin d should be taken with magnesium and calcium. I have only been taking this combination for a couple of weeks, so, no blood work yet to see if it has come up. My vitamin d was 12.

I have had to experiment with what dissolves in my stomach and small intestine. I had a softgel magnesium and hours later or even the next morning, some of the pieces would come out in the bag. Weird!

I now have a chewable caltrate calcium with a small amount of vitamin d, and a powder magnesium that I mix with water. I am also taking a prescription vitamin d which is a capsule, but it seems to dissolve as I have never noticed it in the bag???

I wonder if it would be okay to take tablets with no enteric coating?
