|Comment||Hello again Dr Jacques: I don't suffer from vit D deficiency, as of yet anyway, as my pre-op Vit D was 135 which they had thought was too high so I cut back my intake from 5000 units to 2000 but haven't had a subsequent test yet. I had also been told for years that My bone density was that of an 18 yr old. LOL helps to carry all that xtra weight ! I am also on prevised ac breakfast as well as pre-natal vitamin Tx for your answer and your recommendations I will be following up with my dentist and surgeon very soon sincerely Denise|
