What is Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency is the state of having inadequate amounts of Vitamin D in your body, which may cause health problems like brittle bones and muscle weakness. Many people are deficient and do not realise it as they do not experience any symptoms and doctors do not routinely check vitamin D levels.

What Causes Vitamin D deficiency 

People who do not have adequate levels of Vitamin D may be deficient for any of these reason:

  • Not enough exposure to sun
  • Darker skin pigment
  • Malnutrition
  • Kidney or Liver failure, which prevents the body from adequately processing Vitamin D

  • A family history of vitamin D deficiency or childhood rickets
