Does anyone know if long term exposure to mold can cause a Vitamin D deficiency? We are both extremely deficient in Vitamin D and the dr. just put us on a prescription of 50,000mg/week. Normal dosage of this vitamin 1,000mg/day (not prescription). It seems that a lot of the health problems we have been experiencing (since the mold exposure and beyond) can be attributed to the vitamin deficiency. Anyone have any information on this topic?

You are correct. According to Dr. Michael Stone, exposure to mycotoxin producing mold can definately cause severe vitamin D. defficiency.

Some physicians have prescribed almost toxic amounts of vitamin D to shock the body into producing this highly important vitamin. The reason milk is vitamin D enriched is because milk actually depletes this vitamin.

I personally recommend anyone who has been exposed to mold take 5,000 IU's per day of vitamin D3, not vitamin D. It has also been suggested that lack of vitamin D3 can also add to pain problems.

We are always happy to assist in diet and assistance and donations are highly appreciated.

Cheers,
Susan

Naturally you have a vitamin D deficiency. You live in Colorado and its winter. No sun=no vitamin D. The only reason that they add vitamin D to milk is because molk depletes vitamin D. But you don't want to purchase vitamin D, you need vitamin D 3. There is a difference.

Additionally, studies have shown that people who suffer from chronic pain have a vitamin D deficiency. I suggest you try 5,000 units a day of vitamin D 3.

Best of luck.

Cheers,
Susan
