I got the test results from doctor today and I have to take 50,000 units weekly for 16 weeks. I can't spend alot of time in the sun due to meds already taking. Is there some other way that I can treat this without taking more pills?
If you vitamin D is appreciably low then supplementation is the only alternative. Even getting more sun and eating foods fortified with D isn't going to be enough, can't hurt, but not enough if you are deficient. Be aware that calcium and Vit. D go hand in hand so if you are deficient in the one chances are you are deficient in the other. Is the doctor recommending a vitamin supplement with Vit. D and calcium?
