Thank you. Do we know how much D3 he should take to start with to get his levels back up?

There is a new piece out on how unreliable OTC vit D labels are. They can vary dramatically from the listed dose. We got the best results from the D2 script.

The dr rx'd the dosage for D2, but the pharmacist said the 50,000iu of D2 would not equate to the same dosage of D3.

I saw it on the news. All I can find online is this:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...eling/1909603/

It says it was a JAMA Internal Medicine article. But I can't find it on their website.

In the news piece they identified companies who had certain inspections done were found to have the amounts listed most of the time.

I hunted it down, it's on their "online first" page so it hasn't been published in the print journal yet (at least that's how I understood it).

Default Re: Vitamin D FAQ :)

some of this is just supplement 101: the amount of active ingredient *always* varies, that is normal. there are acceptable degrees of variability however, it is of concern, when we find only half the amount, or worse, twice the expected amount!

a few problems with their article: who are the manufacturers? i understand they don't want to tell. but you know, Dollar Tree makes vitmin D now. and so does walgreens. and so does vitacost. and so does carlon's. this is a great reminder to know your manufacturer

and finally, I highly recommend skipping pills altogether and getting oil-based vit D3.
