Converting IU to mg is very difficult. Mass equivalents are different for every vitamin, and this must be determined first. For example, vitamin A has the IU biological equivalent of 0.3 mcg retinol, or of 0.6 mcg beta-carotene.

How many mgs in 2000iu for vitamin d?

Keep in mind that conversions from IU to mg are specific for each vitamin, so this formula/answer is only applicable for Vitamin D. You first have to convert the 2,000 IU into mcg. Each IU of Vitamin D is equal to 40 mcg, so you divide 2,000 by 40 which equals 50. Then you have to convert the mcg amount into mg which you do by dividing the mcg amount by 100. In this case 50 divided by 100, which equals 0.5, which means that 2,000 IU of Vitamin D is 0.5 mg
