What is the ideal timing for getting exposed to sun for vitamin D benefit and how far long exposure especially for those with Osteoporosis ?

nobody57 Monday, May 7, 2012

I'm not a doctor. I'd say long enough to maintain a healthy full-body tan. Skin tone is a mechanism that the body uses to prevent excess D production. Now it's likely that nobody is going to do this [I won't], which means we all need some degree of supplement in or with our diets. For osteoporosis? Remember that D pulls calcium into the blood, but it also pulls it out of the bone. You want both D and something to put that calcium where you want it (vit K2?).

I have had kidney stones since I was 14 years old. Now the doctor tells me that my body is making to much calcium and that is the reason I am getting kidney stones. Is there a doctor who I can see that can fix this problem? I am wanting someone who can treat the calcium problem not my kidney stone problem.
