Picked this excellent read up today over on THISISMS.  G'day people. The results are in from Direct-MS's sponsored trial outlined here. 1: Am J Clin Nutr. 2007 Sep;86(3):645-51. Safety of vitamin D3 in adults with multiple sclerosis. Kimball SM, Ursell MR, O'Connor P, Vieth R.

Excellent find! Thank you for posting! I'll be bringing this along with me to doctor appointments from now on. They always flip when I tell them I take 4000 IU/day. 

 

Houston, TX. RRMS since 12/05. Started antibiotics 12/06.

Current Regimen: 100 mg 3x/day minocycline, 600 mg 1x/day Azithromycin, 500 mg 3x/day NAC, slowly pulsing with Flagyl

Houston, TX. RRMS since 12/05. Started antibiotics 12/06.Current Regimen: 100 mg 2x/day doxcycline, occasional Flagyl pulses

Well, I haven't backed down from my daily 8000iu and don't plan to anytime soon. Good catch, Daisy!

Indeed a good one, Daisy!

BTW, as I posted a little while back, Dr Vieth seems to believe so strongly in the importance (and safety) of Vit D3 that he mentioned in an article that he has been taking 8,000 IU per day himself for several years now...
