Re: the injections...are they administered in the docs office, once a month or are they something you do at home on a regular basis? Are there any side effects? I've heard something like 50,000. that sounds insane given the 4000 I've been taken by mouth.
If it turns out you've been taking the D2, and want to try D3, he very strongly states that only the GEL caps work, that VitD3 tablets do not work.

|OBJECTIVE: The aim was to document the 25(OH)D status of healthy individuals with habitually high sun exposure.
SETTING: This study was conducted in a convenience sample of adults in Honolulu, Hawaii
PARTICIPANTS: The study population consisted of 93 adults (30 women and 63 men) with a mean (sem) age and body mass index of 24.0 yr (0.7) and 23.6 kg/m(2) (0.4), respectively. Their self-reported sun exposure was 28.9 (1.5) h/wk
...51% of this population had low vitamin D status.
CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that variable responsiveness to UVB radiation is evident among individuals, causing some to have low vitamin D status despite abundant sun exposure.
Carlson makes a D3 from fish oil, which is the only form I would trust. Personally I do high vitamin cod liver oil. Vitamin A *from natural food forms* only approaches danger at 100,000IU/day over some time. Vitamin A is toxic and teratogenic at lower levels based on studies done with the synthetic form (such as retinyl palmitate) and caused modern medicine to tar all vitamin A with the same brush. It's a travesty. But I digress...
