Today I got my vitamin D results back after 3+ months of supplementing with D2. My level was initially in the 20s, and now it's 82. So my body definitely absorbed the D2, and now I'm on maintenance but I asked the dr to give me another D2 prescription (50,000IU, which is a lot so she told me that now I only need to take that much every 5 weeks). I can't tolerate any D3 supplements, I believe due to the lanolin, oil, or yeast...but since D2 also has oil I think it must be the lanolin.
My D2 level is 82, but my D3 level is <4. What does that mean? The dr said the total is what matters the most, but if my D3 is that low, shouldn't I also be supplementing with that?
Also, most people who clear their skin are on D3, so I'm thinking the D2 isn't really doing that much for the skin unless it's combined with D3. What do you think? Is it normal to have a <4 on the test for D3, while D2 is higher?
The range is between 30-100 ng/mL
PS. I know that D2 supplementation is not the best. But it's the only form of D I can take unfortunately, besides sunlight.
