Welcome to healthcare magic forum
For what symptoms did you get this test done?

Vit D3 is synthesized by the body on exposure to sunlight. Only supplements will not be helpful here. Please let him be in sunlight in the early morning.

Egg , fish , cod liver oil are good sources for Vit D. Calcium is also needed here, so milk, milk products are to be given.
