I had a routine blood test recently, and I just received a note in the mail from my doctor's office saying that the test revealed a low Vitamin D level. The doctor wants me to start taking Vitamin D supplements and get re-tested in a few months.
I've never heard of a Vitamin D deficiency. As some of you know, I don't eat meat, but I do eat plenty of dairy products and fish. Any idea what might cause a low level of Vitamin D? Or could it be an error on the part of the lab?
I had the same diagnosis yesterday. I don't know what causes it, but the doctor said that the deficiency makes people feel tired and achy.
I, too, eat lots of dairy products. Apparently not enough. Maybe it's age-related. :-c
