Brief Answer:
Yes it is right dose

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have studied your case and I can assure you that your doctor is suggesting right doses.Keep this dose for six weeks. After 6 weeks get your D3 once again. If it is still low then 30 then you can take further doses.

Are you suggesting to take tab 60k daily for 6 weeks? My doctor has advised for only 10 days.
Also he has advised Shalcal 500 too daily 2 tabs.
Pls also note i have only one kidney since birth.
In view of above, pls advise dosage.

60000 unit per week for six weeks

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I would suggest you 60000 unit once in a week for six weeks.
Shelcal 1000 mg one daily.
Single kidney is not a problem if your blood urea nitrogen and creatinine are normal.

Dr - your 1st reply was thus not clear.
My query was that my doctor says 1 tab daily empty stomach for 10 days whereas NOW you are advising 1 tab per week for 6 weeks. This is contrary to my doctors advise.
Hence would like to have it once again confirmed from you.
You recommend dosage as under :
1 tab Uprise D3 60K per week for 6 weeks and to be taken empty stomach.
Pls confirm.

Brief Answer:
Not to be taken empty stomach

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
I think your doctor has made a mistake by suggesting it daily for ten days. There are chances of toxicity. I would recommend you uprise D3 once a week for sixs week , and not to be taken empty stomach. Also you should not take them with milk. You can have a light breakfast and then take it. I hope it is clear to you.
Thanks
