QUESTION: As the information required by you are
Age 27yrs,Weight 64kg and height 5'11" don't have any disorder or medical history for any illness.Facing this problem from last 7 months as was getting paining in the bones while running walking and other parts of the body .That's were was advised by the doctor to test for Vitamin D and other Vitamins.Test report showed everything else fine but Vitamin D at 13.
Indians, probably because of darker skin colour are showing vitamin D deficinecy of late and a number of reports are calling it an epidemic. The deficinecy leads to Osteomalacia, a bone-thinning disorder that occurs exclusively in adults and is characterized by proximal muscle weakness and bone fragility. You seem to be showing symptoms of this.
Firstly you should build vit D levels in your body. For this both injections and oral formulations are available. If there is a doctor ready to administer the injections, I would recommend that you talk to your doctor and if he/she is unsure about the dosage to use, please refer to the review at the following url:
After your levels are normalwe canthink whether you need any other intervention.
