Re: Vitamin D deficiency is often misdiagnosed as FMS or CFS

Here's a recent study published on medscape that might be helpful:
http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/745868
(sorry, I think you have to register, but it's free)

from the article:
"In our study subjects, a daily dosage of up to 4,000 IU of vitamin D was required to sustain normal metabolism in pregnant women," Dr. Hollis concluded. "Furthermore, following decades of speculation into its safety our research has demonstrated vitamin D supplementation to be both safe and effective."
On the basis of their findings, the investigators suggest that "the current vitamin D EAR and RDA for pregnancy women issued in 2010 by the Institute of Medicine should be raised to 4,000 IU vitamin D per day so that all women regardless of race attain optimal nutritional and hormonal vitamin D status throughout pregnancy."
