Frequent urination and vitamin d deficiency. Is there a connection?

No known connection. The institute of medicine recently lowered the threshold for a vitamin d deficiency from 30ng/ml to 20 ng/ml so the probability of you even having a vitamin d deficiency is very low. If you are concerned, have a doctor do a simple blood test to check your levels. Frequent urination, associated with increased thirst, may indicate elevated blood sugar. Again, if so, see a doctor to be tested.
