Question on Goal for Vitamin D Level on tests
I just got blood work back that listed my Vit D level at 63. The nurse (primary general physician's nurse, not my CPni treating physician's nurse) said I could lower my dose to 2000 a day. I take 4000 now. I have the feeling I should not lower it. The recommended range was 32 to 100, I think, and the paper said optimal levels for health were good at 32 or above. Is 32 enough, or are we looking for much higher levels. Is 63 great, or should I try to get it higher??? It is not only critical for me for CPn, but evidently also to prevent recurrence of cancer, as even my primary physician (not CPn doc) pointed out that Vit D is an incredible cancer preventer.... with statistics pointing out that a person is something like 4 x more likely to get resurrance of ca if Vit D levels are low. That's why he tested for it.
Also, does it matter what form of D you take? Tablet vs capsule, brand, other??
Thanks for any info you might give me.
