More Vitamin D Information

While optimal Vitamin D levels are important, it is equally important that supplementation is monitored by your doctor.  This article reviews some of the benefits (which we are hearing about a lot lately) as well as potential risks.  PLEASE, be sure your doctor is monitoring your Vitamin D25OH levels if you are supplementing with Vitamin D.  In addition, I recommend checking Vitamin D-1,25-dihydroxy levels if you’ve been supplementing to ensure that this form isn’t elevated.  High levels of Vitamin D-1,25-dihydroxy can increase osteoclast activity and promote bone LOSS.  Unfortunately, insurance coverage is often limited for Vitamin D25OH and even poorer for Vitamin D-1,25-diOH.
