Vitamin D3 deficient.

For the last several months my dr's have told me I am D3 deficient. I was told to take 5000 iu a day. I have not done it.

A month ago I broke my ankle, all three bones, and dislocated. It broke rock hopping in the mountains. It kinda rolled, I then stood up and made it even worse. Anyway, I see that one of the condtions of a D3 deficiency is weaker bones.

I am now taking 5000 iu a day. Will taking D3 get my bones strong again, or is this irreversable? I am 43 years old. Also, when D3 levels are back to normal should I continue taking D3 every day anyway.

Any shared info on D3 will be greatly appreciated. I do not want to go through this again.
