In 13 of 17 infants (aged 10.5 +/- 4.3; mean +/- SD mo) with iron-deficiency anemia, the serum 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D concentration was below the normal range and in 9 of these 13 the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration was below the normal range despite the fact that these infants received 10 micrograms vitamin D/d from the age of 1 mo. The infants were treated with intramuscular iron dextran (Imferon). The iron-dextran treatment increased the hemoglobin and serum iron concentrations as well as 25-hydroxyvitamin D and 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D concentrations. It is known that iron deficiency impairs fat and vitamin A intestinal absorption. Therefore, it is suggested that absorption of vitamin D may also be impaired. This may contribute to the development of vitamin D deficiency. Iron supplementation may have improved the absorption of vitamin D in the small intestine and hence increased the vitamin D concentration in the plasma.

I think that I need to make calcium test, I mean try to take calcium supplement to see if it causes any trouble.
I had calcium below the low limit before I ever started vit D.
that fits with what I felt about the cal mag ratio in that bone maker. right on the money. glad mag is helping symptom-wise. since the zinc is in a good place, it will be interesting work to tease out the d3 absorption situation (by the way when you said 5000mg per day ... you did mean IU right??)I'm back to good again today after going down to a 1/3 dose of the bone maker. I popped a magnesium and that wiped out all the weird within an hour. So I think I need to hit the mag harder before I amp up the bone maker again.
