[QUOTE=ladybud;5158251]I do believe Vit D deficiency causes limb pain, like a deep aching bone pain. Mine is better since supplementing the Vit D. You don't really need PTH testing unless your serum calcium levels are high. It will take a few weeks for your D levels to come up, and you should see some gradual improvement in the pain. That will help your calcium be absorbed better, which will help your bones.[/QUOTE]

It takes 6 months to get a decent reading for increased Vitamin D levels in the blood NOT weeks. Bones take that long to heal properly in a healthy individual.

At 6 months someone who has a deficiency is likely to fall into the insufficiently category.

To check you are actually absorbing the supplements a test can be conducted at 3 months but is not needed unless you have known dietary absorption issues. The change in level will be really low.
