Your blood tests show that your vitamin D level is borderline low. Vitamin D is important for healthy bones.

This is how you can increase your vitamin D levels:


You can buy a daily tablet containing 800 to 1000 units (20 to 25 mcg) of vitamin D to take for life.


Expose arms and face for 15 minutes twice daily from May to Sept.


Oily fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel)
Mushrooms, eggs, cereals, margarine
Milk, cheese and yoghurt daily for calcium.

Yours sincerely
