    Usually, most experts agree that levels less than 20 ng/ml (50 nmol/L) 25(OH)D are considered deficient and levels between 20 to 30 ng/ml ( 50 to 75 nmol/L) are insufficient, as reported in your references 10-12. It is possible that you make a mistake, since you express all your results as ng/dL ?
