Keratosis Pilaris Vitamin A absorption?

Do you think it's possible that I have way too much Vitamin D in my body? I thought KP was because of a Vitamin A and D deficiency, so I had been taking 50,000 units of Vit. D once per week, and 25,000 Vitamin A a day, and eating a ton of Vitamin A rich foods, but I just keep pooping out orange (LOLZ!), and I feel like my skin got a bit worse!

I was reading this and she said she was getting TOO much Vitamin D, which makes me think.

I eat so many vitamin A rich things that my poo is orange! But still, the bumps are still there.

then this woman said she cured her KP by eating LIVER, and that her body only absorbs animal and already formed vitamin A sources more than plant sources because of some gene or something. If that was the case, then why didn't she have it when younger? How did her body change to need more Vitamin A and more Vitamin A in only animal sources?

I am going to be eating a whole beef liver once a week, starting today, but I will moss two weeks because I will be in the Caribbean. I just don't get why and how I am supposed to fix these bumps and get by body to absorb the Vitamins it needs. I don't get how i could be zinc deficient either (zinc helps with Vit A absorption) if I eat meat everyday . Sigh. Back to the drawing bored and time to eat some liver -__-
