  • I noticed a clinical trial at Mayo Clinic re:  Vitamin D deficiency and CLL progression.  Had my D3 checked, and yes, I was deficient.  It was already too late for me to join the trial, (for newly diagnosed CLL) but I've been "self medicating" for the past 3 years with 8,000 to 10,000 IU daily, bringing my level from 23 to 57.  (normal range 30 - 100)  Sadly, it has not slowed my CLL progression, after 8 yrs of WW, it is now time treat, but I've been much better at fighting off colds and bronchitis.  One - 20,000 IU sub-lingual spray dose nips it in the bud!
