Brief Answer:
Vitamin D supplement is required.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.
After reading your post, it seems that the values you have provided are of Vitamin D levels. They are in lower range.
I would advise that Vitamin D 60K supplement can be taken once a week for four weeks.
Get the investigation repeated after four weeks of medication.
Further medical management can be planned after a clinical evaluation by your doctor.
I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Regards. Thanks.
