Ramo1, Fatigue and musculoskeletal pain are typical symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D blood results are usually expressed in ng/ml or nmol/L. My vitD was <10nmol/L and I was prescribed a loading dose of D3 40,000iu x 14 days followed by maintenance doses 2,000iu daily for 8 weeks. On retesting vitD was >100nmol/L which was in the optimal range 75-200nmol/L

The link below has a graph to indicate dosing requirements. 50ng/ml is considered optimal. If your result is nmol/L divide by 2.5 to convert to ng/ml to use the conversion chart.
