Low vitamin d and nausea

So I was diagnosed with low vitamin d. Pretty low actually, 15 when the lowest normal range is 35, my doctor told me I was lower the the low range, so I was out of range. I've been having horrible nausea and no appetite, and some gas and gas pains for awhile. Can this cause be caused by vitamin d? I also have daily headaches and dizziness with hot flashes weakness and fatigue. What symptoms did you expircine and how low were you

I was at 19ng/mL in September. Will retest my blood in a few weeks. Had your symptoms and more.

Low D and magnesium. You can buy D3 and magnesium and start supplementing. US range shows 30-100ng/mL as normal. Anything below 50ng/mL is deficient.

You need to take supplements daily. 5,000iu of D3 is more of a maintenance dose. Try to work up to 10,000iu daily, along with magnesium and vitamin K2 (if you don't take medications that would be an issue with K2).

Retest blood in 3 months.
The only blood test that can diagnose vitamin D deficiency is a 25-hydroxy-vitamin D (25 OH vitamin D). Unfortunately, some doctors are still ordering the wrong test, 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D.
