This is really something that would require lab tests if you suspect that you are showing signs of a deficiency, even with your food intake and sunshine. 15 minutes of sunshine on face and arms a few days a week is adequate for most. BUT depending on climate, skin coloring, age, etc---your needs may be different.

Talk to your doctor to see if he/she thinks this is something you need.

If you did show low vitamin D stores with your current food intake and sunshine exposure---then a supplement would be needed.

I put in my nutrition goals to track Vitamin D - but the suggested levels were over 100%. I get a majority of my Vitamin D from sunshine. How much should I be shooting for to get from food?
