Oops, was filled with surprise about your doctor's explanation that I forgot to comment on this too...

What kind did she take and how much? Does she get lots of sun? The interesting thing about vitamins A and D is that an increase in one demands more of the other.

Hope her little bunnies are doing well!

The entire argument for the superiority of whole foods providing your vitamins is that they contain BOTH the right and the left hand ... and synthetic only has ONE.

I think he is a wee bit fuddled.
I think you might be right!! I actually spoke with my ND (a different person) about this just last night. He said that some time ago, he actually called SP to get clarification on this. He said that yes, they do add a "miniscule amount" of the synthetic A, and it has to do with some labeling thing. In order for them to be able to label it as a "vitamin," it had to have it in there - something to that effect.

And I actually did try switching to New Chapter's Perfect Prenatal just because of it, and I felt pretty bad during the week that I took it, so I switched back to the Catalyn and decided not to worry about it.
