  • I take 5,000 IU a day, which keeps my levels right where my neuro likes them to be. I live in the Pacific Northwest which is not known for abundant sunshine! I can see where there could be a link.

    My neuro advised me that MS patients can't synthesize vitamin D from the sun, which may be why we have low levels, I don't know. I just know that with the amount of California sun that I get, my levels are too low and I take a daily supplement of 8,000 IU's.
  • I started with 10,000 units per day and now maintain my level of Vitamin D on 5000 per day. Since I started taking D3 I have not developed any new leisions. I'm also on Copaxone 40mg 3x per week, daily B-12, Fish Oil and Estradiol. MS is unique to each person affected as no single treatment works for everyone. I feel lucky to have found what works for me. Diagnosed in 2007 after 13 years of missed diagnosis.
