Vitamin A units

Hi! I have a question about the Vitamin A units. I see they are IU. My understanding is the current units are mcg RAE, with 900 mcg RAE being the RDA for an adult male. Are there any plans to update the units and RDA in Cronometer?

Thanks for a wonderful, user-friendly tool!

    Hi Zak,

    We would like to update the vitamin A units to make mcg RAE the default target.
    You can view Vitamin A in mcg RAE already, if you like! Check out: Settings > Targets > Nutrient Targets > Vitamins to see the breakdown of vitamin A.
    Make Retinol Activity Equivalent visible, and you will also have to customize the daily target to 900 mcg for the time being.
