    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    The research on vit D is not rock solid,there is some basis for challenging the "new" standards.It MAY just be that levels of 10-15 are OK.

    I doubt it. There is such a strong correlation between low D3 and heart disease, cancer, auto-immune and some neurological diseases that make me believe that most people are on the lower end of D3 level, that's why the effect is so strong! The same applies to K2. At the same time it is not quite clear whether the effect is coincidental or direct causual.
