Such Thing As To Many Vitamins?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My Dietitian told me to get on Vitamin D3, Calcium and a Multivitamin. She never told me what amount. I was unaware of all the different amounts that were available at the time. Right now im taking 500mg of calcium and magnesium with 200 UI vid D. 2000 UI of D3 and 1 multivitamin.

Would it be safe to bump up my D3 dosage to 5000 UI along with the 200 UI thats in the calcium and magnesium? Im also looking into Vitamin K2, any thoughts on if all this is safe or not?

Can you call your doctor or the dietian to ask how much? Levels for one person may be different than for someone else as it depends on how low your levels are to start.

Can you spend some time outside to get some vitamin D?

Do you know if 5000 UI is an huge number? I know they come in 1000, 5000 and 10000 so I would think anybody would be fine with 5000 UI a day

It really depends on what your levels were before starting supplements. If you had blood tests, you should be able to get a copy of the results?

If they're just recommending you take supplements for the vitamins/minerals that most Celiacs are low in, I'd say 5000 might be a bit high? The high doses are for people with very low levels, and who are not absorbing what they take very well.

It is possible to take too many supplements, or at too high of a dose.

I would suggest a fish oil, or krill oil, maybe even flaxseed oil supplements. Those are anti-inflamatory and very good for your brain and cardio system. There are many benefits you can get from the Omega3 oils.

Megadoses should be done under medical supervision. I think that I might stick with the lower intake of D3 unless I had blood tests showing a deficiency.

Vitamin D can be very toxic at high levels though I have read that toxicity is much less likely at doses under 5,000 units. Lots of in-depth info HERE.
