<<Dr Myer recommends D3, but don't ask me why>>
Dr. "Snuffy" Myers, in his book "Beating Prostate Cancer: Hormonal Therapy & Diet
(Quote) We live in an age when obesity and the diabetes that follows are increasing at stunning rates. Vitamin D Deficiency exacerbates both. Lack of adequate Vitamin D also increases the risk of hypertension. In turn, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity foster the development of heart disease; inadequate vitamin D levels increase the risk of heart attack and congestive heart failure (End Quote)
Dr. Myers goes on to say that he recommends 4000 - 5000 IU daily
even though the commonly recommended daily allowance is only 400 (multi-vitamin). Further, he recommends D levels be checked concurrent with other lipid panel reviews such as PSA, dihydrotestorone, etc. every 3 months. Reviews in the 50-100 ng/ml range
are the broad 25-hydroxy Vitamin D goals.
