If my vitamin d is low- 25, how long per day or week should i go in sun during summer to build it up?
Low Vitamin D: About 15-20 minutes in the sun daily w/as little clothing on as possible will help. It depends on where you live. In NE USA during the summer is ok but beyond that it won't do much.

Low vitamin D3: There may be a group of patients who do not absorb vitamin d3 efficiently.

Your gallbladder surgery is likely unrelated. ...Read more

I had my vitamin d tested for the 1st time. Turns out I have deficiency. Can one estimate how long ago the deficiency started? Weeks, months, years?
Can guess based on:: It's possible to get adequate vitamin d from sun exposure in spring ; summer- about 15 minutes of sun between 10-3 gives most people enough d if you don't use sunscreen. So if you get sun you have probably been deficient since the fall; if you avoid sun or use sunscreen it's possible you have been deficient for years.

My vitamin d level is 9, I am in the middle east and wear head scarf, for how long do I need to sit under the sun and what is the time?
Long time: We figure 20-30 minutes of "full body" - read bikini or "birthday suit" exposure for adequate skin conversion in the central il mid summer sun. If only a small portion of skin is exposed it will take quite a while. I would suggest adding in a vit d3 supplement to augment the sun and keep your measured level above 50 for all the health benefits vit d provides! ...Read more

Usually: Physicians put patients with pain or bone loss and Vitamin D deficiency on huge doses once a week or for one week then drop it down to a lower dose. It is true that some find that to cause bone pain and GI upset. In that case you may want to try 4000 units a day for a few weeks and then go back down to 2000 units a day and have your blood levels rechecked at three months. Also use D3, not D2. ...Read more
