Sometimes you have to doubt the intentions of the medical profession. I only take 2000 IU of D and often have to wonder if that is enough.

Once they get past the levels of calcium to take with D they switch units to NG from IU which also leads to confusion. Not the most informative of articles.

Thanks of the heads up on this misleading article.

Hm... I'd place my vitamin D at arround 100 I guess... I don't eat any fish (due to my alergies) or any products related to it and to my knowledge that leaves only eggs as my main intake of these... So about 2 times a week I eat 5 eggs for dinner (they say 1 egg contais 20 IU)

It's said that it helps the sceletal structure... Don't know, my bones are tough enough. I play basketball with my friends. Though it's a rough sport when it comes to us. I even had my legs kicked at full power while playing football (to some it might be known by a strange word of soccer).

Actually compared to my friends I get up from these injuries a whole lot faster...

Vytautus, the whole story with Vit D is, there were recent (AND EARLIER) findings implicating it in both Type 1 AND Type 2 Diabetes ...

And recent studies also indicated it was important in immune function and various other things.

A year ago, my BG had been < 6.0 for over 6 months, I got a milder case of H1N1 flu, followed by a sinusitis that just would not quit! This year, so far so good. Since that flu/sinusitis, I increased my Vit D and have not had any infectious diseases, and my teeth and gums are also much, much healthier (per dentist!).
