How much vitamin D, calcium is right?

I was really hoping when this report from The Institute of Medicine came out today that it would recommend a higher intake of Vitamin D for everyone----but that is certainly not the case. Check out this article by CNN.com (my newsfeed is flooded with articles today)-----and please, please get your Vitamin D levels checked and talk to your doctor about this. I am now taking 10000 IUs (yes, that says ten thousand IUs) of Vitamin D3 daily, as my latest bloodwork shows I am still a little below the optimal range of 70-100 ng/mL (and that's with being out in the sun all summer!)
