Health problems due to Vitamin D Deficiency

problems due to Vitamin D
Symptoms of bone pain and muscle weakness can mean you have a vitamin D deficiency.

Yet, even without symptoms, too little vitamin D can pose health risks.

Vitamin D deficiency can occur for a number of reasons:

  • You don’t consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time.
  • Your exposure to sun light is limited.

-Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin D to its active form. (As people grow older, their kidneys are less able to convert vitamin D to its active form, thus increasing the risk of vitamin deficiency).

Low levels of the Vitamin D have been associated with the following health problems:

  • Weaker Bones
  • Osteoporosis
  • Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease
  • Cognitive impairment in older adults
  • Severe asthma in children
  • Cancer
