Any Low On Vit D?

My vitamin D levels are very low again, in the single digits. I am on the 50,000 IU weekly treatment regimen. Does anyone else have trouble keeping their Vit D in the normal range?
I'm not as low as you, but I was down in the teens. I was put on 5,000 units, and after 6 weeks my level of D had DROPPED. I was on 10,000 for 3 months, and got my level up to the low normal range and was backed down to 5,000 units.
I'm hoping now that I'm eating a gluten-free diet I will do better, but I've been struggling with it for a year.

2) Try to get your vitamin D in the way nature intended: from the sun, this also bypasses the gut.
3) 15-20 minutes a day with ~ 20% of your skin exposed, you DO NOT want a tan! That actually lessens the
Vitamin D formed.

Then I backed down to between 5k-2k per day for maintenance. And within 6 months I was back down to 32. =( So I had to up my dose again. During the summer I usually feel pretty good.

too much sunscreen use, fear of the sun.
My mom's doctor (regular family doctor) told me that he has never tested anyone that came back in the normal range for Vit. D. All his patients show low. He wonders if the testing is even correct. Of course, that might just be his office/lab.
