Not associated: This level is associated with increased risk of osteoporosis or osteomalacia (bone softening). Dry eyes and skin are not recognized as official symptoms of vitamin d deficiency (although supplement and popular health sites may promote other opinions).

Not likely.: Dry eyes and dry skin are not typical of vitamin d deficiency. Nevertheless vitamin d should be taken to produce a normal level.
