Re: Vitimin D

Hi daffodil

 

You’ll have or have had countless blood tests. Ask about your vit D levels before you take a supplement. I don’t know if taking too much can be harmful (as with some vitamins) but it may just not be necessary. If you’re very low, your oncologist or GP can/may prescribe the vit D boost, which is 2 x 20,000 unit capsules to be taken once a month for 3 months (Colecalciferol). I was told that any over-the-counter vit D would be fine after this and no brand was better than any other. It depends whether the size of the capsule/tablet is important to you - smaller the better for me!

 

Good luck with your treatment. Sitting in the sun for a short time is a cheaper way of getting that boost but this is the UK so we can’t rely on it x
