Possibly: A vitamin d deficiency is associated with a disease called osteomalacia which involves softening of bones. A level of 14 is absolutely in the inadequate range and below the 20 ng/ml level recommended by the institute of medicine. Sunlight, wild salmon, fortified almond milk, and vitamin d supplements can increase your levels above 20. Try 1000 iu per day to get started.
