Vitamin D Loading Regimens

Up to Vitamin D

Hi all, I was wondering how other trusts load vit D in deficient patients. We currently load 20,000 units three times a week for 5 weeks in deficiency. However, my consultant orthogeriatrician is interested in finding out if we can load quicker to allow us to administer IV bisphosphonates before patients go home. I have found some guidance from Gloucester that advises to load over 5 days which I have attached, but, it is now out of date. Has anyone else got any experience loading vit D rapidly? I look forward to hearing your responses. Kind regards, Matt
