Many doctors prescribe Vitamin D supplementation and in today's world Vitamin D deficiency is common. My doctor told me to take 2000 IU of D "indefinitely" based on recent bloodwork.

But is D dangerous? Some studies suggest it "inhibits the de-activation of androgens" which means it's pro-androgenic. On bodybuilding and TRT forums Vit. D is all the rage along with zinc, which means it's the opposite for those of us worried about hair.

Is it wrong to object to the doctor's instruction -- a Vit. D level of, say, 25 or 30 may be low for the average Joe, but it's not so low as to risk an increase in androgens for someone obsessed with hair? Are doctors operating from a faulty premise they apply to everybody?
