I Was told I was low in vitamin D and read that vitamin D3 is the vitamin to take. It's all confusing to me. I am a 69 year old female with severe Crohns Disease, anemia (just had two more blood transfusions) and arthritis. A combination of D3, Magnesium and Calcium made a huge difference with my arthritis pain, but I'm not really sure which D I should be taking or how much is safe. I don't want to cause another problem in my enthusiasm to help my arthritis
Yes, you are correct to take the Vitaman d3. You can take upwards to 3,000 iu'ssafely, & the calcium citrate with magnesium & D3 is also what you want, but I would increase the D3 with a separate Vit. D3/ 2 to 3000 IU's. & you can also take more magnesium,& you should takd a general good quality vitaman & mineral supplement. Fish oil also helps with the heart, breathing & other problems. I also take 1,000 IU's of vit. c for leg cramps at night. If I forget, I get the worse cramps ever. Hope this helps...
