Are Current Vitamin D Recommendations Outrageously Low?

At MenopauseRx we do a lot of groundwork to review thousands of research studies. We bring you the newest and most pertinent information for your menopausal health. We know you will find this information enlightening, so much so that it may change the way you think about Vitamin D supplementation.

Numerous studies have linked low vitamin D levels with: Cancer, Depression, Osteoporosis, Heart Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 Diabetes, Rhuematoid Arthritis, Seasonal Affective Disease

With all this research… why are the government recommendations outrageously low at 200 – 400 IU. Studies suggest that blood levels associated with disease prevention may be 5X to 10X the current recommendations.

    I’m 48 and my Dr. recently put me on 2K Vitamin D daily. However, someone I know who is into supplements suggests 4K a day. How do we know what is right, and how much would a 4 yr old and 10 year old need?

    Often, measuring a vitamin D level can guide dosage requirements. Ask your doctor if a vitamin D test is appropriate. The actual test that you want is called a 25(OH) Vitamin D.
    Regarding children….the recommendations are very variable. I would talk to your pediatrician. Also, you may want to research recommendations from one of the world’s experts in vitamin D; Dr. Michael Holik.
