1. Your vitamin d level is very low. Follow the advice given below 2. Take milk, cheese, egg yolk, fish (salmon/mackerel/ trout/sardines/tuna) cod liver oil, mushroom, cereals, orange juice. They are good source of vitamin d. 3.15-20 minute exposure to sun light in morning 4. You have to take vitamin d supplement after consulting physician.
