Effects Of Wrong Dose In Vitamin D Consumption?
Excuse me, I want to ask, yesterday after surgery I broke my leg, then I took vitamin D, but I misread the dose that should be taken 2×2 but I take 1×4 tablets a day, is it dangerous? and what action should be taken? thanks
One of the benefits of vitamin D is that it helps the absorption of calcium and phosphate, which are needed in the formation of bones and teeth. Naturally, vitamin D is formed by the body with the help of sunlight and can be found in a number of foods such as milk, egg yolks, red meat, and fish.
The existence of supplements containing large doses of vitamin D is very helpful in meeting the needs of children, pregnant women and adults who are recovering from bone injuries. Under normal conditions, vitamin D is needed as much as 1,000 IU or 25 micrograms per day. However, the number of needs can be higher depending on one's health condition, level of deficiency and one's age, with a maximum limit of 4,000 IU per day.
In your case it is necessary to pay attention to how many doses are in each tablet. So the doctor can estimate whether when you accidentally take the supplement 4 tablets at once whether it has been an overdose or not.
Excess consumption of vitamin D in large quantities is known as hypervitaminosis D which will affect the increase in calcium levels in the blood, which is characterized by the following symptoms:
easy fatigue constipation muscle cramps headache dehydration increased blood pressure arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) To reduce the risk of hypervitaminosis D, what you can do after consuming large amounts of supplements is to limit the consumption of foods that contain high vitamin D and increase consumption of water, however If you feel any signs of the above-mentioned complaints, visit your doctor immediately.
I hope this information is helpful
