Serious deficiency: The level that you're at is critically low. You need to start proper supplementation right away. It's also important to take vitamin K2 and vitamin A along with D3. Make sure you have your doctor follow your blood levels until you get to 50 ng/dl. Get more information here www.vitamindcouncil.org.
