My Vitamin D levels are only 13.3 L ng/mL what symptoms does this cause, can a long term illness result? I am currently taking 50,000IU twice weekly
Hi Kimmons, welcome and thanks for your question. Your vitamin D level is low, but the 50,000 twice weekly should raise it quite a bit. It does take time to raise your level, you just need to be patient and have your doctor re-check you level in a couple of months.
There are some illnesses that can get worse with low D, but I wouldn't worry about it as long as you are doing something to recitify it. Here's an article I wrote on vitamin D that will give you some ideas about illnesses treated with D and some things that are caused by low D. You may also want to read about things that can interfere with the absorption of D .
Good luck and have your 25 (OH) D level checked in a couple of months.
