Vitamin D is very important. why, I've yet to figure out. I have two different specialists telling me to make sure i take it. The Neurologist made me laugh, told me I need to go an sit i the sun more often. It's so easy to see that most Doctors have absolutely no idea as to what lupus is about.

I think that is common among us. My vitamin d was almost non existent. I am on 50000 as well. I agree with Nonna. The doctors have no clue. I too was told by a neuro that I needed to get in the sun more. I asked if he was gonna treat my rashes for free if I did :) (not to mention that I wouldn't be able to get out of bed the next day

It is a common problem. Mine goes up and down like a yo-yo. I've been on the mega-dose once. I'll be getting bloodwork next week, so we'll see what it is this time.
