Is 800 iu vitamin d3 too much? I'm 41 years old and my dr says take a 1,000 but I saw that its for people nearly double my age. Will it hurt?

me if it's a little too much?

    no 800 I.U. is the standard dose

    did you have the serum Vit D (rapid)

    blood test? what is the reading?

    normal level is 30-100 ng/ml

    best is to walk in the sunshine a lot

    then you wont have Vit D deficiency

    what are your symptoms anyway?

    That is funny. I usually take 30000-50000 i.u. daily but you need to add 1000mcg vitamin K2 and 500-1000mg magnesium - these components work together; only to use D3 is not effective.

    If someone is really deep in vitamin D, you get a syringe with a shot of 300000 i.u. like a friends son (15years old) got.

    I buy my D3 and K2 as a fluid at eBay...easy to swallow.

    Of course it won't hurt. Have you told your Doctor he is wrong?
