    My medico friends claim most people are low in D. I eat a ton of high D foods, and spend a lot of time in the sun, but my levels always test low. Maybe the metrics are wrong?

    Vitamin D is another popular supposed COVID cure, though many of its claims to reduce heart disease or cancer have not panned out. I was willing to entertain the possibility that it might work for COVID-19. But the only published trial about Vitamin D and COVID-19 shows that it does not. Researchers in Brazil randomized hospitalized COVID patients to get either a placebo or 200,000 units of Vitamin D. This is a massive dose and 20 times higher than what most people take per week. For those patients, their blood levels of Vitamin D went up. They just didnít get better any faster. Admission to the ICU, being put on a ventilator and mortality were the same in both groups.

    Qiky search here, it wouldn't be too hard to find the recommended dosage for D luvin whacko nut jobs so here is one ^^where they were doing 200, 000 units of D which as i understand it is calcium so what happens if you overdo the calcium ?

    To be clear - no one in their reasonable mind is promoting the idea that giving Vitamin D cures someone from a covid infection. Whether it is giving normal daily amounts or stupid high doses to a covid infected person.

    There is some evidence (Iím not the person to comment on the strength of that evidence) that having a normal level of Vitamin D stores in your body (instead of a low level) may offer you better protection from having a worse case of covid. That is to say that taking vitamin D - in advance of infection - in order to ensure your vitamin D stores are in the normal range - may help support your body in some fashion that helps it in fighting back against the virus if you later get infected.

    I hope you can see the difference cause I think this is the third time Iíve tried to explain this to you.

    I took zinc, and vitamin D when I had covid last year. Turned out that some of the symptoms I was experiencing were from taking too much vitamin D and zinc, and not from Covid, haha.

    I am the most recent entrant to the covid thunderdome!

    On the bright side, I am triple vaxxed, never go to bars/restaurants or do anything inside without a mask, and haven't had a lick of fun in about a month. So I got that going for me!

    Also, my symptoms are like a medium-ish cold and I would 100% feel fine to be at work right. But since I'm not, I am going to keep testing the new theory that THC prevents covid.

    Are you so simple that the fact that antivaxx nut jobs take stupid high doses of vitamin d makes you completely discount any potential benefit of taking a normal dose?

    I love getting that D. I try to get it naturally outdoors but sometimes I feel like I need a little extra D so I take it inside too.

    “Sola dosis facit venenum” - Paracelsus = “The dose makes the poison”

    I don't really know why you are always wrong but condolences eh

    the point IS the whacko nutjobs sign on TO the fake science for whatever reason, they take way too much D instead of a normal dose, or they take Invermectin or aquarium cleaner or probably some others, everything but the vax a scientists tells them to take

    i'm sure vitamin D supplements have a use taken under the supervison of a medical pro prescribing whatever suppement acording to a lab test but that would not be what the whacko nut jobs are doing

    YMMV but I get blood drawn/ piss in jars on a fairly regular basis and the pro's have not suggested i need any supplements

    So anyone taking vitamin D needs to do so under the supervision of a doctor who is prescribing it? Are you insane?

    You should probably stop drinking water. Or beer. Because - Iím going to blow your mind here - you can overdose on those with very negative consequences.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1770067/

    Perhaps consult a medical professional to have your water consumption monitored. Get you electrolyte levels checked regularly to make sure you are dosing that water correctly. Just like vitamin D if you take stupid amounts stupid things will happen. Vibes youíre just learning concepts like this now.

    Just cause the grey bush doctor you drink beer with hasnít mentioned vitamin D to you doesnít mean it canít be beneficial. If you think your GP has tons of time to be delving into preventative medicine for their patients youíre deluded.

    Oh so now you identify as a female in the Yukon, which one are you the indigenous or the white, the Yukon where there is no sunlight this time of year ?

    I actualy know a guy who was messing with the hyponatraemia and he IS an MD so I'm not sure that is necessary either

    one or both my sisters were overdoing the D ( i think the non-whacko was listening to the whacko) and a lab test picked it up, I on the other hand have not experanced this

    the point of all this might be that moderation is the key in all things


    including moderation

    Whitehorse day length today is 6 hours 30 minutes

    Terrace is 7 hours and 45 minutes.

    Your sisters sound crazy. So do you if you think adults canít be trusted to take a vitamin D pill without a doctorís prescription and supervision and lab tests.

    Its not expensive and there is no prescription so they can definalty be trusted to take TOO much D,

    D is not the only non prescription med people over do

    everybody has weird family and at least one of them did her own research and was overdoing the D and i am willing to bet many other Anti Vaxxers read the same thing and are doing the same thing which was the whole point I was making

    not that there is no use for D supplements

    Most other symptoms are starting to fade......but the heart pressure/pain is still lingering. I'm not real stoked about this.
