Brief Answer:
Low Vitamin D

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

The reports shows that you have low vitamin D levels. Also get you rblood calcium levels checked. If calcium is also low then you will need supplements for both vitamin D and calcium.

You can take the following dose for vitamin D:
Vitamin D 60,000 IU once weekly for 1 month
Then continue vitamin D 1000 IU twice a week for 2 month.

Recheck after 3 months.

Vitamin D is available in many brands like Calcirol XXXXXXX D rise XXXXXXX etc.

Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
