hi. my vitamin D level was low with slightly high levels of serum calcium (10.2 to 10.3 - my parathyroid is normal). my doctor has me taking vit D3, calcium, and magnesium, and she is monitoring both vitamin D (1,25 levels) and serum calcium on a regular basis. from what my doctor has told me, your level of 9.5 is perfect as calcium really likes to be in a fine balance between 9.0 and 10.0. since taking vitD3, my calcium level has actually fallen to this perfect range between 9.0 and 10.0...i attribute this to now having more of the vitD my body needs to get the calcium out of my blood stream and where it needs to go in my body. from what i understand, if anything when supplementing with vitD3, you have to make sure your calcium level doesn't go too LOW, which is generally why it is advised to take calcium supplements with vitD. i would make sure your doctor monitors both levels on a regular basis, and if your calcium gets out of whack, ask for your PTH to be checked as well.
