Welcome to Health Care Magic,
Vit D2 is given for treating rickets in children and osteomalacia in adultswhich leads to weakning and softening of bones.It may be due to low sun exposure.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
The Vitamin D could be due to the fact that the Doctor suspected less Vitamin D or calcium level in the body. Do you have upper body pain, muscle weakness. The Diovan is mainly given in reducing blood pressure and for certain heart conditions, which can promote diuresis.

Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. The prescription of Vitamin D2 by your doctor is supposedly meant to cure low vitamin D levels or derranged calcium or phosphorus levels in body. Diovan is used for controlling hypertention. You must have a word with your doctor regarding the prescription of drugs and the need for it. Wish you good health.
