Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern with very low levels of Vitamin D3
, but I would not advise you to not take any cod liver
oil as it has many side effects like Hypervitaminosis A which might effect your eyes.
Continue using ADTROL-D as advised by your doctor and go for regular follow ups with him to know the improvements in the vitamin D3 levels.
You can follow these instructions which will help in improving your Vitamin D levels naturally:
1. Regular morning walk - Regular exposure to sun light every morning for 20 to 25 mins will help in production of vitamin D.
2. Diet rich in calcium like ragi, milk and its milk products, egg yolk, non veg food items like fish.
3. Fortified milk and fruit juices will also help. Please check for the contents on the pack as not all are fortified.
4. Fortified cereals will also help.
Cod liver oil can have some side effects. Please discuss regarding Cod liver oil with your treating doctor and follow up with him regularly.
Hope this answers your query. If any further questions, will be happy to help you.
