    I am on 50,000 iu every 7 days. I keep losing it. Why? I am in UV all day. I drink milk and love cheese.

    not everyone has low levels of vitamin d.
    i have had mine checked several times. the last only a month or so ago.
    my levels are always good.

    at my worst, i had major organ involvement, and good vitamin d levels.

    please get your level checked by a doctor before taking supliments.

    For the record, it was my endocrinologist who discovered how low my D leveled were and keep getting lower. I take perception vit D .

    Does anyone else have this problemvor know why I need to increase AGAIN?

    Well when I was at my worst I had very low Vit d and was put on 50,000 units a week for 24 weeks. now I'm taking 1000 daily but I haven't had my levels checked. This is great information, thanks for sharing.

    I was put on 5000 i.u daily in March. I'll get my levels checked next month and find out what the status is.

    Mine fluctuates. It is usually fine, but when it dipped very low I was on the 50,000 IU for three months.

    This does seem to be an issue for those of us with AI issues, whether we get much outdoor time or not.
    Hugs,
