as with calcium tabs....there is such a bewildering instructions when i first started taking them (not to be taken within 2 hours of certain foods) that was instructions in packet.....now i notice instructions have been changed... no mention of not taking with certain foods???????? reading on internet, its even more bewildering.......cal and vit d3 can interfere with other nutriants and medication.
something i cannot figure out is...i have always been very partial to milk and cheese etc.....so how do i end up with osteoporosis and frequent fractures of back.....doctors dont give much info either....so most info has to be searched for...then its contradictory....
however, i shall be asking doctor about higher doses of vit d3.........probaby they will say ,,,your blood levels are now in the normal range.........i wouldnt like to take a higher dose without their approval.........

My husband has suffered on and off with psoriasis over the years and managed to mostly keep it under control with moisturisers and the creams you have been prescribed. He did however find a miracle cure and it cleared up completely while he was undergoing chemotherapy, it has slowly come back since he finished treatment 3 years ago but he is controlling it and it is still not as bad as it has been at its worst. A fairly drastic way to cure psoriasis though.
It has recently been increase from a recommended 200 iu's to 600 ius for pregnant women when the latest dose should be 6000 minimum. That is to stop the mothers passing the deficiency to the baby, along with a possibility of rickets and brittle bones. A lot of current prosecutions for child abuse have been overturned when the blood lvels of both mum and baby were found to be woefully low. Calcium supplements MUST have an adequate D3 and K2 level otherwise the calcium is left in the blood to build up in the arteries and kidneys where it is a big problem. (My problem was too high calcium , Hypercalcaemia ,and causing arterial deposits which were blocking my heart arteries, much better after a year of diet and vitamin change)
Rest assured, I would not be taking the dose I do take, if it was going to harm me. I feel a need to get the deficiency information out to all those that are actually in need of it. NICE is not going to take a U turn anytime soon, as they do not want to look stupid having been too low by miles for all those years. Governments Departments have to keep face and do it slowly.
I didn't have enough time to take it slowly so I found out what was happening, and I certainly did not want the heart by pass I was being aimed at last year, Have no need for it now the symptoms are still going and I am a damn sight fitter than I was at 45, when it started, now I am 68 and a lot better now than then.
PS Those that take creams and paraffin based gels MUST NOT SMOKE in bed because it make the sheets into firelighters, and it is estimated by the fire brigades that a hundred or so people have died in fires when the sheets caught fire after a build up of creams made them very flammable.

Trouble is with a lot of skin problems GP's don't really seem to have a clue how to sort. Hubby got rosacea which they thought was psoriasis to start with, nothing worked they finally said it was rosacea and that there was nothing much they could do to treat it, (the creams etc they gave did no good), then after months and months of trawling the internet and trying various things someone said they had used surgical spirit and tea tree oil, so in desperation he tried it - it worked quite well, its much better now, and surprisingly its worse when he doesn't get any sun. Anything (within reason) is worth trying, but if putting it on the skin do just a small area to start with.
I also hear about the paraffin based creams, after being used for many years it soaks into material (clothing, bedding etc) and unless you do a 90 degree wash it will still be impregnated with it and highly flammable. Lots of deaths caused by this, horrific.
There is a relatively new treatment available on prescription called Enstilar . I used it for 6 weeks last year and ended my treatment at the end of September . I have had no need to treat my affected areas until now . I have just started treatment again and if it's anything like last time I hope to be relatively clear in the next 4 weeks. Although the scales have returned they haven't returned as bad as was previously.
My understanding when I first started using Enstilar is that not many GP's were prescribing it due to it being new on the market and therefore they possibly aren't all aware of it .
Ask your GP if it's suitable for yourself and if so can he/she prescribe you some , it has been the best treatment I have ever used
You surprise me about things like Diprobase and Epiderm they do wash out of my clothes on a 40 degree wash, agreed you don't want to set fire to yourself while you are plastered in the ointment.
As a test I just used a metal skewer with a lump of Epiderm and put it in the flames of the gas cooker and it just dripped off, no flames no burning no excitement.
