Patient

Q: Dear Sir,

I am a male, 26 from India. I do alot of gymming and take a good high protein diet.
But from long time, I am suffering from joint pains.
Yesterday I got my VITAMIN-D checked with 25 Hydroxy test.

Please suggest. How to treat this and how much dosage should I take of VIT-D3 and for how long ??

Thanks & Regards,
Raghav
