    I can't give any advice, but I did just see something like on GMA about how so many peeps are getting this. They recommmend vitamins. I would contact her doc. to see how much she would need.

      I don't have experience with this, but looking in our treatment guide, and I asked our PA. it says for vitamin D Deficiencey:
      Activity: Weightbearing exercise
      Diet: fatty fish (tuna, salmon), fortified milk, cerial and foods

      there is a vit d supplement that's rx, I'm going to presume since doc didn't order it, it may not be that severe.

      get over the counter Calcium + D. my doc recommends Calcium Citrate, generic for Citracal, 2 daily.
      Get plenty of sun light, not tanning bed, sunlight.

      good luck.

        food allergies, especially celiac disease cause vitamin deficiencies even if you eat...

          When I had my blood work done in May it showed that my vitamin D was low and my doctor gave me a prescription. I take one 50000 IU capsule weekly.
