Comment:
I have been treating patients with bone loss or concerns of bone loss for over 20 years and the only D I have found to work is vit. D3. This is a very misleading article. The true value of Vitamin D is in D3, not D. D has never been shown to have a positive effect in humans while D3 has. I would revise this article and this will add more creditability to your future articles.

I live in sunny SoCal so the sun or my body's processing of vit D wasn't doing such a good job. For approximately 2 years I had been experiencing general body aches and pains. It got to the point where I could barely walk at night due to excrutiating pain in both feet upon getting out of bed to use the bathroom. My doctor took blood tests (but not for vit D), sent me to a rheumatologist. ... Show Full Comment

Vitamin D deficiency, both my husband & I. I have lots of health issues that this could help with. Some are talking about taking 5000 wanted to see if there are side effects at high dosages.

Comment:
(PRE-TREATMENT POST) Just had my annual physical exam today. VIT D deficient: 9 ng/mL (very low!). Been feeling little depressed lately, little bit more irritable, can't sleep well, and feel muscle and joint pains. My doctor didn't want to prescribe Vit D2/50,000 IU since I had a kidney stone problem in the past & I'm still under a care of a urologist. She prescribed Vit D3/2,0 ... Show Full Comment
