Low vitamins d level. How serious is this.

It's very common

Vitamin_d
Low Vit D is not life threatening or even a short term issue. The concern is long term - it can lead to worsening bone density (osteoporosis). More research has led to links with fatigue, muscle weakness, heart issues, etc. We aim for a blood level greater than 30 ng/ml. I often prescribe a high dose vitamin d protocol "boosting" for 2-3 months, then an OTC Vit D supplement of 2000 units daily.

Is it okay to take vitamins D with chemotherapy?

Not only OK but wise

Vitamin_d
It is a good idea to take Vit D with chemotherapy as it often depletes Vit D- see http://www.naturalnews.com/037663_chemotherapy_drugs_vitamin_d_deficiency.html Vit D is crucial for proper immune function. Also, there is evidence that Vit D improves the effectiveness of chemotherapy- see http://www.vitamindwiki.com/Chemotherapy+might+be+amplified+by+vitamin+D

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

what are the names of vitamins d im going to bay?

Vitamin D, D2, or D3

Open-uri20121014-21189-15hwods
It may be called Vitamin D2, D3, or cholecalciferol, but it should be fine if it just says Vitamin D. Normal adults can take 1000 units a day, but vitamin-deficient patients may need more.

Wat time is best for sunrays to have best of vitamins D.

Midday spring&summer

Sun_exposure
We can only make Vit D from UVB rays & the sun has to be at least 50 degrees above the horizon for these rays to reach us. It depends on where you live but in most of the US the sun is NEVER that high in fall and winter months. In spring and summer the sun is that high in midday- in late June it is that high from about 10-3, shorter times closer to equinoxes, See comment for more details:

Besides calcium and vitamin d, what vitamins help with weight loss?

No Evidence Any Do!

Open-uri20130520-2208-1dimmyr
No scientific evidence any vitamins good for weight loss. Severe deficiency, esp. malnutrition ↑ disease? Yes. Vitamins common in so many foods, humans have not maintained all genes/proteins required to make them; typically missing just 1 key biochemistry step. All discovered, 1 by 1, by association: historical observations/problems with severely limited & only processed food with ↓↓ed vitamins).

Is it safe to take biotin5000mcg vitamins with B12 vitamins and vitamin D?

Yes, but

Vitamin_d
Biotin deficiency is very rare and mild. B12 isn't absorbed. Vitamin D is safe in doses of 2000 units/day or less. Only the D (preferably D3) is liable to be of value to you.

Neuropathy

Muscle
Please explore causes of neuropathy through web MD or other educational web sides. In young age if these symptoms are occurring with muscle twitching then I would make sure no toxins, drugs or chemical exposure, causing these. If none of above then report to neurologist.
