    RE: VIT D at least 800 IU daily: Please read this article from the New England Journal of Medicine. The article does a wonderful job pulling together and summarizing the numerous studies that have been done on the subject. I really think you must read this article, especially pages 273-274. "Above about 35 degrees north latitude (think Atlanta to LA), little or no vitamin D3 can be produced from November to February." Most tissues and cells in the body have a Vit D receptor. Many physical maladies are linked to Vit D deficiency. The studies saw no change in conditions until patients took 800 IU or more daily. I'm taking 5000-6000 IU of D3 a day. When my D3 ran out I tried the D2 the boys were taking and it really was ineffective. They are now on my D3, and I'm back to it. I really think they were seriously under supplemented.

    Hi I am 49 years old and have been very active in my live, even though I am overweight. I developed osteoarthris a few years ago and I think its mainly hereditry. Recently I have been feeling alot of pain in my entire body and I just dont feel like getting up in the morning. I really need to be inspired to loose some weight. I feel a little better knowing I am not the only one in this condition and I wanted to share this with you. - 7/27/2009 12:34:42 PM
  • At 57 Arthritis in my feet and back are limiting my exercise and weight loss.
    I too am looking for some suggestions for exercise. I sometimes get to the pool but even that can hurt me. I do best with 10 mins. of different types: bike, walk, weights, swiss ball, etc. Mix it up. Hope that helps some. LOL. - 5/19/2009 10:07:20 PM

    I am a 58 yr. old female and feel osteoarthritis is overtaking my body. I was very interested in this article, as it was easy to understand and follow and encouraged me to start eating better and take my suppliments. Very helpful! - 12/1/2007 4:55:48 PM
