No known connection: The institute of medicine recently lowered the threshold for a vitamin d deficiency from 30ng/ml to 20 ng/ml so the probability of you even having a vitamin d deficiency is very low. If you are concerned, have a doctor do a simple blood test to check your levels. Frequent urination, associated with increased thirst, may indicate elevated blood sugar. Again, if so, see a doctor to be tested.

Maybe: Vitamin d. Is metabolized into its active form in the kidneys. If the kidneys are damaged such as in chronic renal failure, vitamin d metabolism is impaired. Chronic renal failure can also lead to frequent urination because the body is unable to reabsorb water and electrolytes. However, there is little direct relationship between vitamin d deficiency and common causes of frequent urination.

No: Frequent urination suggests a bladder disturbance such as an infection. Drinking large amounts of fluids woulod also produce this symptom.
