Vitamin D: Why You Are Probably NOT Getting Enough and How That Makes You Sick


Sounds like you are taking either a cod liver oil supplement or a Vitamin A/D combo. Please be aware that in January 2001, the Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) of the Institute of Medicine set the tolerable upper level (UL) of vitamin A intake for adults at 3,000 mcg (10,000 IU)/day of preformed vitamin A (oil soluble-retinol /not caroteniods.)
Also retinol intakes of 5,000 IU/day may be associated with an increased risk of osteoporosis in older adults.
