LOADING

The most common regime for loading and initial follow up with MAXIMUM D3®.

  • Serum 25(OH) D <18-20 ng/ml - 10,000 IU (1 cap) daily for 30 days, then 20,000 IU (2 caps) weekly

  • Serum 25(OH) D >20 ng/ml - 20,000 IU (2 caps) weekly;

  • And then reassess 25 (OH) D levels after 12 weeks.

  • These recommendations apply only to experience with MAXIMUM D3®.

DESIRABLE LEVELS

Good evidence exists for a risk of overt bone disease (osteomalacia, Rickets) with levels below 20 ng/ml; there is fair to good evidence for suboptimal calcium absorption below 32 ng/ml; primitive sun exposed populations have 25(OH)D levels predominantly in the 40-60 ng/ml range.

Toxicity from short term exposure requires levels near or above 150 ng/ml. Because of lack evidence for additional benefit, limited data for adverse effect and uncertainty over toxicity from chronic use - the Institute of Medicine recommends against doses above 4000 IU/day in unsupervised patients.
