My Biochemistry report shows vitamin D deficiency. What could be the possible reasons?
Hello, My Biochemistry report shows vitamin D deficiency. What could be the possible reasons? I am 32 years old. What should I do? Shall I need to see a doctor? Please leave your comments.
@moumita Vitamin D concentration shows exposure to vitamin D (from dietary intake and sun exposure). Vitamin D has many vital roles to play. It facilitates the absorption of calcium magnesium and phosphorus from the intestine. It also promotes mineralization of bones by maintaining calcium magnesium balance. Vitamin D deficiency could be due to limited Sun exposure, inadequate dietary intake or presence of vitamin D binders in food. You should consult your physician for advice on vitamin D supplementation.
