How does Replesta manage my vitamin D deficiency?

Chronic vitamin D deficiency has been shown to have serious consequences. Therefore vitamin D deficiency should be rapidly corrected.

In order to manage vitamin D deficiency in some people, it is necessary to give large doses of vitamin D within a relatively short period of time. Replesta contains 50,000 IU vitamin D3 to help raise your calcidiol levels above 30 ng/mL.

How do I take Replesta?

Replesta can be prescribed in a variety of ways allowing your doctor to tailor a treatment strategy that will work best for you. Use under medical supervision and follow your doctor’s instructions. 

Can I take Replesta with my multivitamin?

Yes, you can take Replesta in conjunction with your multivitamin or calcium supplement. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you are taking any dietary supplements or medications. 

Can I correct vitamin D deficiency with my diet?

Vitamin D deficiency is common in medical patients, including those who take vitamin D supplements. Despite lifestyle and dietary changes, vitamin D concentrations often fail to reach normality in a significant number of patients.

In order to achieve adequate levels of vitamin D, measurement of calcidiol levels and replacement with a medical food such as Replesta may be necessary as part of the overall management of your condition.
