Hello and thanks for your question! You're speaking with Dr. Bridget. I appreciate your patience as I review your question and prepare my response.

Hi there...it is possible to have Vitamin D toxicity that presents with weight loss. The dose you took is much higher than the typical recommended dose, but you would not know if you have toxicity for sure unless you get your 25-OH Vitamin D level drawn. I recommend calling your physician to get an order for this lab. Toxicity is diagnosed with a level greater than 150 ng/ml.

Do you have any additional questions for me? I am happy to help:)

Hi! How is everything going with the Vitamin D? Have you had your level checked yet?

Regards,

Dr. Bridget
