Vitamin D

Just a quick question about vitamins. I give Kian an omega 3 with acde mulitvit every day but im thinking of just vitamin d on its own. I dont know if his level is down or not but it wouldnt do any harm just to give it him, would it? I read that vitamin D helps with growth?

As far as I know vitamin D3 supplements can't really do any harm even at twice, triple or more of the required daily supplemental amount.

I imagine if you live in Scotland, you probably aren't getting a huge amount of sun. Your son is likely low in vitamin D if he isn't getting a lot of sunlight. Anyway, I've heard that if you take less than 10,000 units daily, it is hard to OD on it... Ask David. He knows all about it.

Vit D isn't normally a routine test. When is he due to have bloods done again?
