Hello. This forum has been very helpful so what better place to ask this. I wanted to inquire on the D3 dosage for me and my brother.
I was found to be deficient a year ago and I have no doubt I've been deficient for many years, I wonder if my levels are good enough to resolve lingering symptoms that aren't linked to my hypothyroidism.
8 months ago after initial supplementation my levels were 130 nmol/L (75-150) or 52.1 ng/ml
Since then on maintenance dose of D3 10,000/week.
Recent lab: 84 nmol/L (75-150) or 33.7 ng/ml
In regards to my recently diagnosed 16 year old brother, after 2 months on 50,000/week D3 his level has only gone from <20 to 57 (75-150) or 22.8 ng/ml.
Now he has been prescribed 10,000/week for 3 months and will retest then. Is this an adequate dose for him or does he need a higher one? If needed he can self supplement from the shelf to complement this for a month or two.
Thanks in advance!
