Ok I’ve experimentally consumed approx 10million IUs of retinyl palmitate (vitamin A) over about 8 months and my retinol blood work is still in the normal range only a slight increase. It was initially low normal. Thought I’d move it up a bit but as described took alot of pills to do it.
Is this medically possible? Shouldn’t I be well above normal range, or a least top of range with the huge dosage?
I get retinol is tightly regulated but I must have maxed out my liver stores now, right ? Have been sure to take it with fat, etc.
Also I know it’s toxic, my liver is fine but my kidney function has dropped a little. So I’m not recommending anyone do this, but I’m under doc supervision.
Curious if anyone here has a idea why retinol levels in previously used accutane user is so hard to move or is this normal for all mankind?
