My husband was diagnosed 6 months ago. In that time, I have been reading, asking questions and learning. One thing I have yet to resolve is a good answer on giving my daughter D3. Her pediatrician is clueless about MS, much less MS and vitamin D link. The pediatrician says ask the neuro. The neurologist is a terrific MS specialist, perfect for my grown husband, but he admits he knows little about pediatrics, and since technically the child is not his patient, he is a cautious to advise anything.
One thing the pediatrician and I did resolve and agree to was to change her multivitamin to something without iron! (The clueless pediatrician is onboard with CCSVI, lol.) However the vitamin D was left hanging out there.
I see 400 IU is the standard recommended for children. I will do that if nothing else... but should/could I do more?
So, are you giving your children D3? If so, how much?
It sounds like most of you are on D3 supplements yourselves... how much? Husband is on 2000 daily. That seems low for an MS patient compared to what I've read from you all here.
Thanks so much! (Sorry if this is a repeat discussion, I did search the site.)
