fyi, interesting free full text to help when doing the math on dietary d3:
An Evaluation of the Vitamin D3 Content in Fish: Is the Vitamin D Content Adequate to Satisfy the Dietary Requirement for Vitamin D? (2007)http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2698592/
"Based on the dietary tables, it is suggested that salmon contains approximately 400 IU of vitamin D3/3.5 oz."
Table 1 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/article ... /table/T1/
vit d3, IU/oz
Salmon, Farm 240 ±108 (9)
Salmon, Wild 988 ±524 (9)
"However, most experts agree that 1,000 IU of vitamin D3 is required if there is no exposure to sunlight (1–3, 6,7)."
Type of dietary fat is associated with the 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 increment in response to vitamin D supplementation (2011)http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21816779
"The change in plasma 25OHD (nanograms per milliliter) during vitamin D supplementation was positively associated with MUFA, (β = 0.94; P = 0.016), negatively associated with PUFA, (β = -0.93; P = 0.038), and positively associated with the MUFA/PUFA ratio (β = 6.46; P = 0.014)."
presumably dietary fat ratios would have the same effect on plasma response to dietary d3..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monounsatu ... al_sources
"...Monounsaturated fats are found in natural foods such as red meat, whole milk products, nuts and high fat fruits such as olives and avocados. Olive oil is about 75% monounsaturated fat...."
foods highest in monounsaturated fats:http://nutritiondata.self.com/foods-000 ... 00000.html
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
