I appear to have a level around 50ng/ml
25-Hydroxyvitamin D

123 (my result)
75-150
nmol/L
This is the test of choice to assess
Vitamin D status when indicated. Testing
asymptomatic patients at low risk of
deficiency is not usually required in
view of the safety and low cost of
supplementation.
<25: deficient
25-74: insufficient
>200: toxic
Total 25-OH Vitamin D represents the sum of
25-Hydroxylated Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3
species.

Any suggestions on how to navigate it from here? I’ve been supplementing Vitamin D probably for over 3 years now. I started deficient and outside of the lab reference range. I’ve been getting a few minutes of sun recently and will presumably be taking advantage of it throughout the summer. Should I still supplement or cut out the gel caps on days when I’m going out in the sun (20 minutes, shirt off, and in shorts without sunscreen). I’ve been taking 4,000 IU’s almost since day 1 of supplementing. Should I increase the dose? I am a heavier person and the fat could be hiding away Vitamin D.

I understand it’s best to get your Vitamin D from the sun because there’s other beneficial factors the sun generates that a vitamin d pill won’t. I believe nitric oxide is one of the benefits


I’m confused at the bottom bit: "Total 25-OH Vitamin D represents the sum of
25-Hydroxylated Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3
species"

I double checked the WB vitamin d posts and they said to be getting a 25-OH Vitamin D and not 1,25


I thought we only wanted a D3 reading and not D2
