Is too much vitamin D a problem?

My wife has to stay out of the sun because of medications that she takes and has been warned to not take too much vitamin D-- she has sarcoidosis, an immune problem What about people who have immune issues? Answer Sarcodiosis is an autoimmune disease that involves high levels of production of 1,5-dihydroxy vitamin D. I would closely follow your doctor's advice here and not take "too much" vitamin D. I would actually ask your doctor for a specific recommendation for how much to supplement-- especially considering that any time you drink milk you're already taking supplemental vitamin D.

As for people with other immune diseases, you may not have this specific problem, so vitamin D supplements are not necessarily a problem.
