What are some underlying medical reasons that cause low Vitamin D?


I take supplements. 5000 units of D3 and 600 D daily. I had thyroid surgery to remove 1/2 of my thyroid and am not on any medications. The specialist doctor says my numbers are fine. But last week at my regular doctor's office, he said my Vitamin D is low. My magnesium is low as well which I also take supplements for. I just don't know however, why would my Vitamin D be low? I walk every day outdoors in the sun. I take all these supplements. Thoughts?

    JT, Thank you for your answer. I had dairy problems before I had my thyroid out, and since then, I've been incorporating more in to my diet. I don't eat enough fish though.
