Advice & Tips: Initially took cod liver oil to obtain more vitamin D in my body, to increase effectiveness of prolotherapy injections I was receiving at the time. After injection treatment ended, took for muscle & joint pain. Intermittently stopped taking cod liver oil from time to time, due to IBS flare-ups.

Advice & Tips: Had a blood test on 12/16/2010 that showed my Vit D levels were too low (doc told me this on 1/5/2011) so I decided to start taking it again. I use Vit D in drop form; it's mixed with an oil, so I put 5 drops (10,000 IU) on top of my peanut butter toast in the morning that I eat for breakfast. I don't even taste it.
