This is very important! Please don’t miss this vital information. My name is Dr. Reiner Kremer, DC, NMD, PAC, MPH—I’ve been in practice for 42 years in Franktown, Colorado at Franktown Family Medicine. I have seen many, many health issues that could have been prevented had patients made better lifestyle choices. Many of these health issues dealt with conditions related to vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is an extremely important vitamin that has powerful effects on several systems throughout your body including your immune system and brain.
Vitamin D functions like a hormone and is considered a prohormone, and every single cell in your body has a receptor for it.
Vitamin D deficiency is very common. Data from blood tests of new patients taken from our practice indicates that over 90% of patients have vitamin D deficiency.
Common risk factors for vitamin D deficiency:
- Having dark skin.
- Being elderly.
- Being overweight or obese.
- Not eating much fish or dairy.
- Living far from the equator where there is little sun year-round.
- Always using sunscreen when going out.
- Staying or working indoors.
1. Increased Illness Frequency
Most notably autoimmune related conditions. Vitamin D plays extremely important roles in immune function. One of the most common symptoms of deficiency is an increased frequency of illness or infections.
2. Chronic Fatigue
Researchers found that 89% of the nurses were deficient in vitamin D3.
Excessive fatigue and tiredness may be a sign of vitamin D deficiency. Taking a natural vitamin D supplement may help improve energy levels.
3. Back Pain
Low blood levels of vitamin D may be a cause or contributing factor to bone pain and lower back pain.
Depression is associated with low vitamin D levels and some studies have found that supplementing improves mood. A good example of this is the incidence of Seasonal Affective Disorder that is common in the Northwest due to overcast and cloudy weather, with limited sunshine.
5. Poor Wound Healing
Inadequate vitamin D levels may lead to poor wound healing following surgery, injury or infection. Vitamin D helps you heal!
6. Bone Loss
A diagnosis of low bone mineral density may be a sign of vitamin D deficiency. Getting enough of this vitamin is important for preserving bone mass as you get older. Without sufficient vitamin D3 calcium leaves the bone and is elevated in the blood. The bone becomes osteoporotic and or osteopenic.
7. Hair Loss
Hair loss may be a sign of vitamin D deficiency in female-pattern hair loss or the autoimmune condition alopecia areata.
8. Muscle Pain
There is a link between chronic pain and low blood levels of vitamin D, which may be due to the interaction between the vitamin and pain-sensing nerve cells.
Vitamin D deficiency is common. Vitamin D blood test target: 60-80. Many patient’s levels that we see are well below 20. In addition to getting sunshine, Vitamin D supplementation is a safe and effective way to support your health and wellness. Get your blood tested. Find out your values. If you are low consider supplementation or get regular meaningful sunshine, 15-20 minutes daily.
