Brief Answer:
Vitamin D supplement is needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.
After reading your post, I would suggest that you should take Vitamin D supplement 60 K units once a week for four weeks. Also add milk/curd products in your diet. Also do outdoor activities as sun is the natural source of Vitamin D.
Your Vitamin B12 levels, though on the lower side, are in normal range. You should eat green leafy vegetables. You can take Vitamin B12/Methylcobalamine supplement for fast improvement in the levels.
I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Regards. Thanks.
