From this study (5 years ago):
Anna Marie on Jun, 12, 2010:
I have been taking 50,000 units of Vitamin D once a week and my feet and ankles are swollen. I was concerned it was my heart, but once I saw that other people were having this problem, then I realized it could be the Vitamin D. I think Doctor's push too much medication on us. Going out in the sun, 20 minutes a day probably will take care of any Vitamin D deficiency.
