I was prescribed vitamin D supplements on my last visit to doctor's, (had a Medichecks result that was slightly low, 36 nmol/L (50 – 200)
I began taking a supplement (on advice from folks here about dosage) soon after.
Just had a look at the prescription and realised it was a combination with calcium. My last full blood count was in March and my calcium levels were higher than the previous test in December 2017, near top of range.
Should I take them when present ones finished (in just under 2 weeks), or get advice and probably a blood test first? Here are the details:
Dec 2017 2.36mmol/L (2.20-2.60) “adjusted level” 2.39
March 2018 2.50mmol/L (2.20-2.60) “adjusted level” 2.52
At the moment I'm taking Vit D 5,000 iu with magnesium and K2 (“Loading dose”)
Prescribed vitamin D with Calcium. Vit D 200 iu and Calcium 750mg x4 per day = 800 iu and 3,000 mg
