Vitamin D Recs
Posted Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 1:20 AM

What does Dr. Bernard suggest regarding taking Vitamin D supplements for those of us living in the northern part of the US?

Taking a vitamin D supplement should be based on need. The only way to know if you need it is to have your levels checked, regardless of where you live. It's not something you want to take upon assumption of need.

I live in Seattle land of the rain (lol)I did take a D supplement but my last blood work can back with my D levels elevated, so I stopped. I agree with Susan you need to know for sure, not just guess.

Hubby was tested and was low (we're in New England) so we both take a D supplement daily. He'll be tested again later this year when he has his annual physical so we'll see how that goes and whether it's good (keep doing what we're doing), high (stop), low (increase dosage).
