Vitamin D deficiency

I tested vitamin D in January 2020 and it came out to be 15 (anything less than 50 is deficient and 100-250 is OK).

I started a course of D Pura 60k for 3 months and then stopped. (Ideally it should be repeated after some gap).

Now i don’t want to do vitamin D test again (costly) so want to know if I can start some less-strong course again (maybe some 10k or even lower) – IF NOT D PURA AGAIN?

This is assuming 60k D Pura 3 month course ofcourse would not have increased my vitamin D from 15 to 250 so there should be sufficient buffer to take vitamin D safely.

I don’t take milk, non-veg, eggs so i cannot get vitamin D naturally. Sitting in Sun is also not an option.

Suggestions friends?

Course can be repeated every six months. Btw, what is your age ? My vitamin d level was 13 when last tested, nothing to worry, more than 50% of world population is vitamin d deficient, so don’t worry and keep enjoying

1st suggestion would be to go again take a teat to know where your levels stand now; Finance can surely be an issue as you said.
2ndly, since you are vegetarian with no milk intake, it’s really difficult to get Vitamin D rich food. 2 options: Wild Mushrooms contain a decent amount of D2 (commercially grown ones might not since there are generally grown in shed, so no sunlight); Try getting some Vit D fortified foods, for this you need to read the label while buying.

5 stages

SEVERE DEFICIENCY : <12 ng/ml

DEFICIENCY : <20 ng/ml

INSUFFICIENCY : 20-<30 ng/ml

SUFFICIENCY : 30-100 ng/ml

TOXICITY : >100 ng/ml

Min needed for healthy person :- 30 ng/ml

Don’t Aim for more than 60-80 ng/ml as it will start to become toxic

GET TESTED for 25-OH VITAMIN D (TOTAL) test evey 6 Months …

If you’re Non vegetarian then You’re left with 2 options
1) Sunlight ( Morning 9AM – 10 AM)
2) Cholecalciferol Vit D3 60k ( Once/wk for 2-3 months)

Don’t worry Budhhe baba ji You will soon get back to 30 ng/ml it wouldn’t take much time to reach 30 from 15.

more Vitamin D can lead to toxicity in body. It’s not like other vitamins where you can have exceeded levels of value and can still be normal.
Vit D will cost around 700 which is not huge value, else if you haven’t done ur yearly routine test then go for aarogyam pack which you will get for around 1100 for 80-90 tests.
Do not self prescribe.
Worst case scenario, if some other things happen to you, instead of spending 700 for the test you will have to spend 70k. This is what our frugal minds would think. Do not fall for that trap. You are spending for your well being, so dont worry and take a chill pill sunglasses

Are you sure you’re not confusing ng/ml and nmol/L? Vitamin 25 OH levels in India are usually in ng/ml rather than nmol/L. So when you say anything less than 50 is deficient and 100-250 is OK – that is for nmol/L and not ng/ml.

60000iu per week is the recommended dose for severe deficiency and after a retest, a dose per month to maintain the levels.

Take a test & try to sit in sun when you have a off day for 30-45 minutes.
Vit. D toxicity is serious but once a week dosage for a month or two should be fine for those with prolonged Vitamin D deficiency. Talk with a qualified doctor don’t be scared with hyped up toxicity news on forums.

I was talking about nmol/L only. I didnt mention ng/ml.

FYI for all.. Daily vitamin D requirement for body is 1k IU.. In developed countries, they don’t even make or sell 60k IU dosage medicines.. And chewable tabs are 1k IU each.. There are 1k IU tabs available in India also, which u can safely take daily and not worry about toxicity.

Never take Vit D without doctor’s consultation.
But, given your condition, and since you have already taken for 3 months, 5K (5000 IU) once a week may be required.
