is there a difference between Vitamin D, D2 and D3?

My doctor ran some test and came back Vitamin D deficiency, it shows my levels are: vitamin D= 15, vitamin D2 = 4 and D3= 15, just wondering what the difference between each of them are, I thought it was all the same. also, my B12 came back in the normal range at 259, (200-1100) but he says its too low for him, so I got a shot for that. thanks

There are different tests for vitamin D levels you just need to concentrate on your Vitamin D3 levels and take Vitamin D3 supplements to get yours in the optimum range.
