I have been told to start Vitamin D supplements as my level is 29 something or other, and they want me to get up to over 75 something or other (wasn’t really taking it all in!). I have to take 3000 iu, which I think I have worked out is 75ug, a day (please correct me if wrong, I do wish they could stick to one flipping unit!).
I have also been recommended to get my children to take a supplement too as something of a precaution, but I don’t know how much they should have (internet is not clear, at least to me!). One is 10, and the nurse did say she could take an adult does (although they said maintenance for me is 1000iu, which exceeds anything online for that age), and my other is 8 (and I didn’t really ask about dose for her!). Does anyone know what they should have?
And finally, there are lots that are dead cheap on eBay, just how dodgy is this or are they just good savings?
