Information on the latest vitamin D news and research.

Find out more information on deficiency, supplementation, sun exposure, and how vitamin D relates to your health.

Hi. I'm 23 years old. For the past month, I have been feeling sick. I went to the doctor two weeks ago and had a blood test done and it came back with deficient vitamin d levels @ 15. The doc gave me supplements but there is one symptom that I don't see other individuals have and that is irregular chills and a feeling that my body is constantly warm. But every time I check my temperature it is normal. Could I have an auto immune disease that I don't know about? The rest of the my blood report checked out just fine.

    Well just about anything is possible. If everyone got the same exact symptoms from being Vitamin D deficient, that would probably make everything easier.
    The important thing is to take the Vitamin D and hope that solves your issues. (Even autoimmune will respond to Vitamin D therapy.) I hope you are taking a minimum of 5000 iu of Vitamin D per day but hopefully he/she prescribed more. Make sure it is D3. You should also read http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/. It is very important!
