7 unusual signs of vitamin D deficiency that you’re lacking vitamin D
Today we talk about some common signs of vitamin D deficiency
Vitamin D is a very important vitamin,
Vitamin D is fat soluble, so mostly your body makes it from cholesterol when your skin is exposed to sunlight.
The functions of vitamin D as a hormone and every cell of your body has a receptor for it.
So if you are overweight, your body will need a lot more vitamin D than the average person
The same goes for those who have a lot of muscle and body mass
Vitamin D deficiency the only way to know for sure are you vitamin D deficient?
By a blood test but the signs and symptoms that come along with this deficiency could be helpful
Here are 7 unusual signs of vitamin D deficiency.
1. Getting Sick or Infected Often:
If you are getting sick after every some days and this going on a regular base that means you deficient
It’s because of vitamin d deficiency because the main process of vitamin d is keeping the immune system strong.
2. Tiredness and exhaustion (fatigue):
There are very reasons for this, but this is also one sign of vitamin d deficiency:
If you are feeling very tired or fatigue with no reason, then it may be a vitamin d deficiency
In fact, we will go to the doctor and they will give the medicine this is going on 90%
But if tiredness because of vitamin D deficiency, then we have to check and recover the levels of vitamin D
3. Having the blues (depression):
One sign of vitamin D deficiency is having the blues.
To prove this theory, Researchers studied 80 elderly patients, and they found that those who had the lowest vitamin D levels were 11 times more likely to be depressed than those who had healthy levels of vitamin D.
scientists state that major symptoms associated with the seasonal affective disorder (sad).
The result from changing levels of vitamin D season affective disorder is a mood disorder; that results in symptoms of depression during the winter months when there is less sunshine this occurs.
If you notice that you become increasingly sad, particularly during the winter months it may be because you have a vitamin D deficiency.
If this is the case, consider talking to your doctor about a vitamin D supplement that can help increase the levels of vitamin D in your body and possibly help improve your mood surprised.
4. Bone and Back Pain:
If you have bone and back pain, that means you may have a vitamin d deficiency because vitamin d plays a big role to keep bones strong and you must have a correct level of calcium also to keep bones strong.
In fact, the process of calcium absorption also will do vitamin d if you have a low vitamin d then as a result it may have low calcium as well.
Many patients who visited the doctor and complain about aching bones and muscles are misdiagnosed for fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome it’s not an uncommon mistake.
But what I recommend is that before the doctor diagnoses you ask for a vitamin D blood test just so you can rule it out if it comes back negative.
5. Not getting soon Wound Healing:
If you have a minor injury or slight cut and not healing soon comparing to other peoples, then it is one sign of it,
Vitamin D is very important for our skin, different parts of our body, and biochemical aches,
If your skin is not recovering soon, then it can be because of it and you have to fulfill it.
6. Bone density:
Bone density (the weakness of bones), if you are getting fractured with a minor injury, even with small bending of ankle or knee if you have getting fractured,
That means your bones are getting weak and your bone density is low,
That’s why your bones are getting weak and you have a vitamin d deficiency,
7. Muscle Pain:
Muscle pain, this is like sign no-4.
But here we talking about muscle pain if you are doing a workout exercise or walking after a long time and getting muscle sourness, then this is not an issue.
If you are doing a workout and physical activity with a long time, this is not new for you then also if you are getting muscle pain it can be one sign of it.

Tips to recover vitamin D deficiency.
Vitamin D is also a very common risk factor among seniors, the reason that seniors are at a greater risk for developing a vitamin D deficiency is because as seniors age their ability to synthesize vitamin D from direct sunlight.
This is a function that decreases as a person ages seniors are also less likely to exercise and live active lifestyles as they age they also stay inside.
95% of senior citizens are vitamin D deficient the reason is not just because they spend a lot of time indoors; Another Reason Is That They Produce Less Vitamin D When They’re Exposed To The Sun;
If you have darker skin, you may need as much as 10 times more sun exposure to get the same amount of vitamin D as an individual with pale skin.
Those peoples who are over the age of 70, they produce 30% less vitamin D than a younger person with the same sun exposure
Scientists state that people require up to 30 minutes of exposure to the Sun, at least twice a week to get the necessary amount of vitamin D according to the food nutrition board.
The average amount of vitamin D intake that a person should get until the age of 50 is 200 international units (IU) for men and women.
Men and women between the ages of 50 and 70, should have a daily intake of 400 international units.while after the age of 70, the intake should raise to 600 (IU) for both men and women.
