Brief Answer:
Vitamin D deficiency is very common

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Vitamin D deficiency is very common. It can be due to either deficiency in nutrition. If you are a vegetarian then chances are high. Vitamin D is present in milk and egg and dairy products. Also if you remain indoor most of the time then it can also cause vitamin D deficiency as it is formed in body with help of sunlight.I have following suggestions for improvements.
1.Take 60000 unit per week for six weeks.
2. Take plenty of milk, egg, chicken and sun exposure.
3. Fish is also good source.
I hope this answer will be useful for you. let me know if there is any other followup questions. thanks
