The normal level of vitamin D in blood ranges from 25-50 ng/ml. Deficiency occurs when this level decreases to about 12 ng/ml or less. In adults deficiency of vit D causes osteomalacia in which softening of bones occurs. Take abundant amount of sunshine(approx 5-10 min of sunshine)everyday for replenishing the vit D deficiency. Osteomalacia is treated by eating 2,500 IU per day of vitamin D for about three months.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
