  • An injection lasts longer than a loading dose ( ~3 month vs ~2 month)

Overview Loading of vitamin D contains the following

If a person is, or is suspected to be, very vitamin D deficient a loading dose is typically given

  • Loading = repletion = quick replacement (previously known as Stoss)
  • Loading doses range in size from 100,000 IU to 1,000,000 IU of Vitamin D3
  • The size of the loading dose is a function of body weight - see below
    Unfortunately, some doctors persist in using Vitamin D2 instead of D3
  • Loading may be done as quickly as a single day, to as slowly as 3 months.
    It appears that spreading the loading dose over 4-20 days is a good compromise
  • Loading is typically oral, but sometimes by injection (I.M,)
  • The loading dose persists in the body for about 3 months
    The loading dose should be followed up with continuing maintenance
    Unfortunately, many doctors fail to follow-up with the maintenance dosing.
  • As about 1 in 300 people have some form of mild allergic reaction to vitamin D supplements,
    it appears prudent to test with a small amount of vitamin D before giving a loading dose
  • The causes of a mild allergic reaction appear to be: (in order of occurance)
    1) lack of magnesium - which can be easily added
    2) allergy to capsule contents - oil, additives (powder does not appear to cause any reaction)
    3) allergy to the tiny amount of D3 itself (allergy to wool) ( alternate: D3 made from plants )

Suspect in the future that some people will
inject Vitamin D every 90 days just as diabetics now inject Insulin daily
