All gradual: The symptoms tend to be gradual as in the case of osteoporosis. In my experience, some patients may develop an itchy skin rash from vitamin d deficiency (no published report ) as vit d3 is considered an immune regulator, some have considered its deficiency to play a role in multiple sclerosis. Another reported noted reduced response to inhaled steroid in children with asthma when vit d3 is low.
