Brief Answer:
Safe

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Vitamin D3 supplements are relatively safe. Both the values you had put up i,e 66ng and 59.6 ng/ml are safe values and would not cause kidney failure. Similarly osteomalacia is caused by brittling bones in adults because of vitamin Deficiency and not excess vitamin.
I would like to know why do you have this doubt and want to be more clear about this query.

Vitamin D3 supplements should be titrated agains the dose and time to the deficiency in the blood.
