It would be ideal for you to have Inj Vitamin D 3 ( 3 Lac International Unit ) once a day in half cup of juice for 3 days.

Followed by once a month along with Vitamin D and Calcium level for rapid improvement .

Meanwhile as you have peripheral Neuropathy you should check your Vitamin B 12 levels and also get its supplementation.

This is best thing that you should follow for good results .

Regards ***** ***** luck .
