Lack of sun exposure: Lack of sun exposure is a major cause of low vitamin d level especially if you live in the northern us. Less likely would be lack of vitamin d in food, but also a possibility if you are on a very restrictive diet.

Poor intake: 1.nutritional deficiencies can be a cause because not a lot of food contains vitamin D. 2. Malabsorption disorders like celiac disease, small bowel overgrowth syndromeis a possibility 3, low sun exposure

How much are you: taking? You may not be taking enough vitamin D or you may have malabsorption. Try taking 5000 units of vitamin D3 daily for three months before repeating the test for vitamin D level. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
