  • Thanks for that article link Edward ! I love the work Dr Hollis and colleagues are doing to get pregnant and nursing women on more vitamin D

    I have read the Vitamin D deficiency is common in Crohn's disease, and even more recently that it may be implicated as a possible cause of Crohn's. Do you have any more information on this? How much Vit. D should a person with Crohn's Disease take daily?

    it is best to get a blood test and follow directions in chapter 5 of my book after you review with a doctor. Try to get your blood levels between 40-70 ng/ml which is what I advise all my patients

  • Great reference Edward! Thanks!

    What is a good dosage for a person who has a Vitamin D level of 30 and just finished chemotherapy for colon cancer? Is it ok to take 10,000 IU's per day?

  • Bobbie I am glad you are interested in Vitamin D since some studies have shown a deficiency in D is related to colon cancer. I cannot tell you what dose to take as I do not know your current blood level ! But I can tell you that 10,000 IU per day for a long time will probably be too much.

    Ask your oncologist to do a vitamin D level on you and then show him/her chapter 5 in my book for what I do with my patients. Then the 2 of you can decide what is best for you.
