Hi, My husband who had to have his lungs washed out due to a bad bronchitis infection that was not shifting and that lasted 2 years, was recommended by the Respiratory specialist to take Vit D. She said there is increasing evidence that it's helpful for your immunity. (Not just good for your bones). For 3 years he has not even had a cold.In the UK press today articles reporting that Public Health England (PHE) is recommending people take a supplement of vitamin D. As usual it is completely carp advice. PHE says people should take 10mcg, that’s just 400IU of vitamin D3 per day. That amount of D will take no one out of deficiency and not keep anyone in sufficiency even if they are at sufficient levels to begin with. In addition PHE say if people go out in the sun they should cover up or put on sunscreen - those both stop the skin making vitamin D. PHE also say that vitamin D has nothing to do with immunity. Huge sigh of frustration here.
But does anyone know if there is issue with Vitamin D + Warfarin?
