Vitamin D deficiency is an epidemic and not just common for those who are ill. I was diagnosed this year with a deficiency and was put on an RX of 50,000IU, one pill per week for one month. My numbers came up to normal with that dose and I now just take the daily recommended dose. I also live in a very sunny part of the country and am outdoors a lot so I was stunned to get these results. Has your doctor treated you with the very high dose of D or are you taking the standard dose? I have not had UC for 9 years and have been totally healthy.
