How does Vitamin D 1000 IU work?

Vitamin D controls the amount of two nutrients in your body. These nutrients are calcium and phosphate. They are needed to help your bones, muscles and teeth stay healthy. Low vitamin D levels can cause problems with bones, including rickets and conditions which cause bone pain.

Vitamin D is suitable and safe for most people. The Department of Health and Social Care recommends vitamin D for all children and adults in the UK.

Some people might not be able to take vitamin D supplements.

You should check with a doctor if:

  • you are taking medication that has vitamin D in it
  • you are under 18
  • you have a condition that means you cannot take vitamin D in normal amounts

You should speak to your doctor before taking vitamin D if you have:

Side effects

For most people it is safe to take vitamin D. How much vitamin D is safe depends on your age.

  • Babies under 12 months old should not be given more than 1000 IU a day.
  • Children aged 1 to 10 should not take more than 2000iu a day.
  • Adults and children between the age of 11 and 17 should not take more than 4000iu a day.

Taking too much vitamin D over a long time can cause too much calcium to build up in your body. This can cause damage to your bones, kidneys, or heart. Side effects from taking normal amounts of vitamin D are very rare but may still occur.

Uncommon Side effects include:

  • feeling sick
  • losing your appetite
  • constipation
  • a sore stomach
  • feeling weak
  • feeling thirsty
  • feeling sleepy

Rare side effects include:

  • rashes
  • itching

Some medicines might affect how well vitamin D 1000 IU works. A full list can be found on the patient information leaflet. Once you have registered for an account you can also message one of our doctors for advice on how much vitamin D you should take.
