Arnie, I agree with you 100%. Have been there and done that also under a doctors care, for a specific reason. D3, Calcium Citrate, along with a bisphosphonate are being used to correct for an ADT side effect of bone breakdown or resorption. I was taking 6000 iu a day for about
6 months until my D3 blood level reached mid range. I will continue with 2000 per day, plus the Ca and Fosamax in order to contain and possibly improve my bone density.
Purgatory, My Oncologist and I have a grip on my supplements.
