Do you have Vitamin D Deficiency?

November 5, 2009 | by DoctorSolve

All vitamins are essential in order to maintain our bodies balance. Vitamin D, in particular, is important because it helps maintain bone density which allows healthy bone growth. Calcium is useless without vitamin D. Vitamin D allows calcium to be absorbed into the body. Studies have found that a lack of vitamin D in the body can lead to osteoporosis. Moreover, if you have a high vitamin D intake, you can lower your risk of developing breast cancer, prostate cancer, and colorectal cancer.

Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms

If you are vitamin D deficient you may experience some of the following symptoms:
Muscle pain and weakness, muscle cramps, joint pain, fatigue, chronic pain, weight gain, high blood pressure, sleeplessness, trouble concentrating, headaches, bladder problems, constipation or diarrhea.
Not everyone who is vitamin D deficient suffers from the same symptoms. Sometimes their deficiency can even go unnoticed.

How to incorporate more Vitamin D in your life

  1. Spend time outdoors – the sun is the best source for vitamin D.
  2. Eat more fatty fish (salmon and herring), shrimp and oysters, shitake mushrooms, beef, and liver. These foods are rich in vitamin D
  3. Use supplements. Take vitamin D supplements or multivitamins to ensure that you are getting all of the vitamins and minerals your body needs.
If you think you may have a vitamin D deficiency, visit your doctor and ask for a 25-hydroxyl-Vitamin D test. This is the only test that will test for a vitamin D deficiency.
