Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have seen the result attached. The Vit D level is very low and treatment should be started.
Usually the dose recommended is 50 000 UI ( VitD3) once weakly for 8 weaks and than 1000 UI daily for other 3 months.
You probably need to take calcium supplements too but calcium level should be checked before, if low calcium should be taken together with vit D.
Hope the information will help.
Kind regards,
