Vitamin D3 helps protect your bones, both by increasing calcium absorption and by supporting muscles needed to avoid falls.

Patient Concerns

Vitamin d3 deficiency Test- 25 OH Vitamin-D value is 7.2 ng/ml Normal range
Dr. Faran Siddiqui
Homeopathy
You have condition called osteoporosis. Take calcarea phos3X 4 tablets 4 times a day in 1/2 cup of warm water along with 1-2hours of direct sunlight exposure at your body. Vit D is processed by your body by sunlight only which helps in calcium binding there is no other way to get vit D absorbed in human body.
I am away from my hometown and currently at Pune. My Vit D deficiency test was done last year and it is time now to get it done again. When contacted Path Lab I was asked whether Vit D test or Vit D3 test and I am unable to reply. Please let me know which one I should go for. I suffer from early stage of Osteoporosis and feel pain in elbow or upper thigh at times. There is no other complication.
