Prescribed with arachitol for low vitamin D levels. Is it a safe medication?


My vitamin D levels stand at 10. As for the history of my levels I've no clue. This was the firs time I got it done, jus randomly. M 28 years. Upon visiting a rheumatologist, he has prescribed a single dose of arachitol, along with a test - ANA. My questions to you are:-
1. Is my Vitamin D level drastically low?
2. How difficult is it to push the levels higher?
3. How safe and effective is Arachitol?
4. If you could give me an overview on implication of Vitamin D level.
5. Anything else that you think I should know.

Appreciate your help much in advance

Thanking you
