I was very bad in going back to have my blood drawn to have my vitamin D level checked. I was supposed to go back in mid-December, but didn’t go until last week. The good news is, my levels are much improved. So vegans, it can absolutely work to do high-dose liquid vitamin-D2 supplementation for a low level and have it come up to normal. No need to take sheep secretions (or D2 that’s in a gelatin capsule)! My doctor did recommend that I continue with the daily type of supplement that I’m on, which for me is a total of about 2000 IU/day of D2 (my compliance is not as good as it should be, so I err on the side of taking a bit more than I might otherwise need to, since I don’t end up taking it every day). Here’s to preventing osteoperosis!
