What is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D helps your body absorb an essential mineral called calcium. If you don’t have enough vitamin D you might feel tired, get unwell more often, have weak bones and muscle pain and even feel anxious or depressed. We are now seeing a stronger link between lower vitamin D levels and weaker immunity.
What is it for?
Vitamin D is an essential fat-soluble vitamin that is needed for healthy bones, muscles, energy and a strong immune system. It's also important for your mental health — lower levels are linked to anxiety and depression.
What can cause my levels to change?
Your body is able to make all the vitamin D you need when your skin is exposed to sunlight. But when sunlight exposure is low during autumn and winter, it is can be common for your vitamin D levels to drop — putting you at risk of developing a deficiency or an insufficiency.
You can get vitamin D from foods like oily fish, liver, egg yolks, and fortified food but it's hard to get enough this way.
You might also be at an increased risk of developing vitamin D deficiency if you:
are vegan or vegetarian
have darker skin
always wear sunscreen
stay indoors a lot
cover up most of your skin
What are the most common symptoms?
The most common symptoms of vitamin D deficiency include:
getting sick often
aching bones and joints
weak bones — increasing your risk of osteoporosis
poor wound healing
NORMAL? INSUFFICIENT? DEFICIENT?
What dose of vitamin D should I take?
Why leave it up to chance? If you're going to do it, do it properly.
Based upon your exact vitamin D blood test level we are able to recommend personalised treatment doses of a replacement supplement.
We can also organise for your level to be rechecked within 8-12 weeks to ensure the level has come up over the course of your treatment.
