The 10 symptoms of vitamin D deficiency you need to recognize
Taking vitamin D while still young may be good for the body in the long run. Results from a study conducted by the University of Zurich have confirmed that sufficient amounts of vitamin D taken consistently are necessary to maintain bone health.

Many people believe that maintaining healthy eating habits is enough, but only few foods naturally contain significant levels of vitamin D. According to Dr. Heike A. Bischoff-Ferrari, a faculty of UZH, in order to get adequate levels of vitamin D through diet alone, two servings of fatty fish like salmon or mackerel would have to be consumed every day. It is thus necessary to increase vitamin D levels in the body through sufficient sun exposure and supplementation in order to use the sunshine vitamin's full potential for maintaining proper body functioning.

This misconception about maintaining D levels through diet does have a degree of ground since vitamin D is not a stand alone vitamin. To perform many functions, vitamin D works in cooperation with other vitamins like magnesium, which can be found in leafy green vegetables such as spinach. This unique characteristic of vitamin D has contributed to the management of many chronic illnesses.

The many faces of vitamin D

Decades ago, health care professionals thought vitamin D was only good for keeping healthy bones and teeth. Recent advances in science, however, have put this vitamin in the spotlight by revealing its multifaceted role in the proper functioning of the human body and its ability to lower the risk of illnesses not formerly associated with it.

Despite the recent revelations about the potential of vitamin D, it appears that not everyone appreciates this discovery. The current lifestyle of working indoors has contributed to the growing number of vitamin D deficiency cases worldwide. This is compounded by the fact that not everyone is aware that he or she may be vitamin D deficient.

It seems the "health care" "professional" are always decades behind the truth and always chasing new drugs for treating symptoms (never the cause). Each individual is responsible for his/her health, period.

i have read that it plays an important role in cancer prevention and also in flu prevention and that these things are starting to have scientific backup.

I was tested a while ago and had a very low level of vit D, doc put me on a lot of supplements. I have continued to take them and I always will now, at 2000 units a day.

they reckon that 2/3 of people in aus are vit d deficient and thats in a country with plenty of sun....

Fifteen Facts You Probably Never Knew About Vitamin D and Sunlight Exposure:
(Compiled by Mike Adams, based on an interview with Dr. Michael Holick, author, The UV Advantage)
Vitamin D prevents osteoporosis, depression, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and even effects diabetes and
obesity. Vitamin D is perhaps the single most underrated nutrient in the world of nutrition. Thatís probably
because itís free: your body makes it when sunlight touches your skin. Drug companies canít sell you
sunlight, so thereís no promotion of its health benefits. Truth is, most people donít know the real story on
vitamin D and health. So hereís an overview taken from an interview between Mike Adams and Dr. Michael
Holick.
1. Vitamin D is produced by your skin in response to exposure to ultraviolet radiation from natural
sunlight.
2. The healing rays of natural sunlight (that generate vitamin D in your skin) cannot penetrate glass.
So you donít generate vitamin D when sitting in your car or home.
3. It is nearly impossible to get adequate amounts of vitamin D from your diet. Sunlight exposure is
the only reliable way to generate vitamin D in your own body.
4. A person would have to drink ten tall glasses of vitamin D fortified milk each day just to get minimum
levels of vitamin D into their diet.
5. The further you live from the equator, the longer exposure you need to the sun in order to generate
vitamin D. Canada, the UK and most U.S. states are far from the equator.
6. People with dark skin pigmentation may need 20 - 30 times as much exposure to sunlight as fairskinned people to generate the same amount of vitamin D. Thatís why prostate cancer is epidemic
among black men -- itís a simple, but widespread, sunlight deficiency.
7. Sufficient levels of vitamin D are crucial for calcium absorption in your intestines. Without sufficient
vitamin D, your body cannot absorb calcium, rendering calcium supplements useless.
8. Chronic vitamin D deficiency cannot be reversed overnight: it takes months of vitamin D
supplementation and sunlight exposure to rebuild the bodyís bones and nervous system.
9. Even weak sunscreens (SPF=8) block your bodyís ability to generate vitamin D by 95%. This is how
sunscreen products actually cause disease -- by creating a critical vitamin deficiency in the body.
10. It is impossible to generate too much vitamin D in your body from sunlight exposure: your body will
self-regulate and only generate what it needs.
11. If it hurts to press firmly on your sternum, you may be suffering from chronic vitamin D deficiency
right now.
12. Vitamin D is ďactivatedĒ in your body by your kidneys and liver before it can be used.
13. Having kidney disease or liver damage can greatly impair your bodyís ability to activate circulating
vitamin D.
14. The sunscreen industry doesnít want you to know that your body actually needs sunlight exposure
because that realization would mean lower sales of sunscreen products.
15. Even though vitamin D is one of the most powerful healing chemicals in your body, your body
makes it absolutely free. No prescription required.

I believe 1000 UI is equal to 25 mcg, micrograms. Which is eff all.

My vitamin D3 are 4000 UI each (Carlson) brand. I cannot get these anymore as our vitamins are being scaled back or neutered. Most D3 are in 1000 UI form so you could easily take 5-10 of those types.

10,000 UI is equal to 2500 mcg. Or 1/4 of a mg.

Re: The 10 symptoms of vitamin D deficiency you need to recognize
Another thing to be aware of, if any of you have thyroid issues- it is very common for those with Hashimoto's and Grave's Disease to be low in vitamin D.

My youngest daughter had Hashimoto's, unfortunately, she has cancer, so they had to take her thyroid out. While we waited for over two years for them to finally take it out, after I practically forced them to, she suffered from fatigue, irritability, depression, amongst other symptoms. I did as well, but I have Grave's Disease.

I had my vitamin D levels tested last year when I suspected I wasn't getting enough. Sure enough, I was very low, a 13 out of 32. When it dawned on me that my daughter was suffering from some of the same symptoms as myself, I had her tested, and sure enough, she was low as well. She is on 2000 IU's a day, and I just upped mine from 800 to 5000 IU, as the blood test came back at 17, to which it went way down after doing the weekly 50000 IU's for six weeks and then 800 IU's daily for several months, to which I even knew that was too low, but the doctor wanted to see if I was having a hard time absorbing it at the normal level. I told her as soon as the test was down, I was upping it to 5000 IU's as I've had enough with the fatigue issues and generally not feeling well. I have to see my endocrinologist, who happens to be my daughter's as well, soon, to see what is up with her and I that we need so much. He did mention before that it was because of where we live in terms the equator, and we live in NH where you don't get a lot of vitamin D from the sun, even in the summer months.

Just wanted to give folks a heads up with thyroid issues. This is a very common problem with those who have either hypo or hyper kind, please be careful and start taking some vitamin D if you aren't already.

Re: The 10 symptoms of vitamin D deficiency you need to recognize
Saw a really cool vid on youtube once of a lecture given in 2009ish by a lady GP or Neurologist who had discovered that D3 was essential for human health and went into great detail her research that led to her conclusions.

Summary as follows (sorry - can't recall who she was so can't post a link)

1. D3 acts more like a hormone in the body and probably has been incorrectly labelled as a vitamin, as D2 is found in foods and is used readily in the bodies of mice (humans are the same as mice, you know!Sheesh!) who don't get as much sun exposure as humans and therefore have evolved to utilise the vitamin D2 instead.

2. The human brain and other organs such as the heart and liver have receptor cells that are specifically adapted to D3 alone. The ones in the brain are in the same areas as the pineal gland and the parts of the brain responsible for migraines, mood balance and sleep regulation (S.A.D, anyone?)

3. The skin helps to generate D3 (as opposed to D2, found in foods and not so easily used by the body) via exposure to ultraviolet sunlight, the type of which is determined by the angle of the sun. The angle is most suitable for D3 generation in the summer months(either hemisphere), and the further away from the equator you live, the less time of the year the sun is at the right angle to allow the body to generate enough D3.

4. To get best benefit, you should expose maximum skin to diect sunlight. 10 to 15 mins daily in the nude will do... ;)

5. There is an optimum range for D3 levels. Too low and it can cause a range of nasty health problems, from depression to immune problems to cancers. Too high and you pretty much get the same side effects. Not sure what the range was.

6. Due to current societal lifestyles, she believed everyone is deficient in D3 (unless you work outdoors in the sun all day) and 5,000 to 10, 000 units a day is her reccomended dose.

7. Everyone should get a blood test and know what their D3 levels are. Make sure your doc is testing for D3, not D2!


I take D3 regularly (probs not enough) to boost my immune system. I up the dose if family members are sick and during winter months. I started after finding out that family members undergoing chemo and radiotherapy for cancer were put onto really high doses of D3 to help rebuild their immune systems. If you read the bottle, however, there is little reference to the immune benefits of taking D3. Mostly just strong bones and muscles and whatnot.

Great topic Op and thanks for bringing it up here!
