    Good idea to get your level checked and then start the D3.... get it checked again at a later date to see if it is making a difference depending on what your original level was.

    On the assumption that I am deficient since I do not live in California I take 1 x high strength D3/ K2 (reputed to help to carry calcium into the bones)
    I have no idea whether it has upped my levels nor do I feel any different but will carry on in good faith!

    I was going to ask about this too. I have just got the results of my Vitamin D levels test back. Its 23.4 with me having been taking 1000iu a day for nearly a year. So the dr has told me to take another 600iu a day, and get re-tested in two months.

    she didnt mention Vitamin K2. How much shoud I take?
