Recently news suggests low vitamin D levels have been associated with increased risk of COVID-related morbidity and mortality. We know that vitamin D is a safe fat soluable vitamin that is difficult to "overdose" on. What should the pharmacist know in terms of repletion dose and signs of toxicity?

This episode will focus not on the claims of efficacy of Vitamin D in COVID, but will instead discuss how your patients can replete vitamin D levels and the risks of toxicity in overrepletion.
