Blood Test results shows Vitamin D is 9.4 (ng/ml) and B12 is 97 PG/ML. Also getting frequent burps. Doctor suggested to take Meganeuron capsule.

Need D3,? need shots. You need to take Vit D3, which is not in Meganeuron. I advise 10,000 iu/day for 3 months, then 5-8000 iu/day to achieve optimal level 0f 50-80 (see http://tinyurl.com/mkjempg). There's a good chance you're low in B12 because of the Razo D,which blocks HCl you need to absorb B12. Thus oral B12 may not raise your levels & you may need B12 shots. Recheck levels soon.

Was a vitamin D deficiency causing random aches? After supplementing vitamin D3 at 2000IU for a few weeks, I had a blood test which showed 34.6 ng/mL.

Not the reason. Your levels are normal since supplementing. Every week in medicine a new medical disorder is linked to Vitamin D deficiency. At the same time studies are published just as frequently showing that Vitamin D supplementation does not reverse the condition or symptoms. It is VERY unlikely deficiency is causing your symptoms. Most people with Vitamin D deficiency don't have any symptoms. Read more...

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. . Read more...

On my blood test, it show my vitamin d hydroxy 25 panel being 20.6. What does this mean?

Seasonal too. One reason so many people have low vit d levels is because we don't get out enough, and have too little sun exposure. There is often a drop in vit d during the winter months. In addition to supplements, you may want to make an effort to get out in the sunlight more. Not "sunbathing", but physical activity. Read more...
