> saw my GP yesterday. My vitamin D was 5. the lowest his nurse had ever seen.

2000 units per day will take rather a long time to get you back into the reference range. Maybe about a year.

Recently, in the UK, we are using large weekly doses to speed up the process, followed by a maintenance dose. For example, with your very low level you might be prescribed 2 x 20 000 unit capsules once weekly for 3 months then retest. If normal, a maintenance dose of 800-2000 units per day might be prescribed. If still low, the high dose would be continued for a few more months. You can buy the high doses from a pharmacy here, I assume you can too.
