Dear Dr. Price,

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask since it is not a mental health questions
but I got this new vitamin D liposomal with 5000 iU vitamin D and 1000 IU choline and some other minor ingredients
and basically I take for two reasons 1. low vitamin D and 2. stomach issues. I found out that taking liposomal vitamin D in the past made my stomach issues better and had them stop quicker. I have also found out based on personal experience that taking 10,000 IU of vitamin D daily helps improve stomach more than 5000 IU. I currently take 5000 and wanted to increase to 10000 for a couple of weeks until my stomach improves I am also a little worried that perhaps 10000 of the liposomal would end up too much but I don't have any evidence to support it
If vitamin D is a safe vitamin and rarely cause side effects I would seriously consider upping the doze
please let e know that you think

Can check Vitamin D blood levels to make sure you are not too high. Let me know how you make out. I often give 50,000U per week.
