I just want to add that Vitamin D deficiency is a pretty common thing even for Caucasians, especially in the North where the weather tends to be a bit more marginal. Without a doubt, supplementation is recommended for people with darker skin.

His levels were tested and found to be low? Usually the doc will prescribe Vit D 50,000 units one a week for a month and then monthly for a few months before retesting. But depending on the level, OTC strengths may be fine to supplement with. Talk to the doc that did the test. They should have discussed this with you.

Vitamin D supplements should be taken with a meal that contains fat and it's important. Thanks!
