Vitamin D: What you need to know


Vitamin D is unique because it is the only vitamin that can be made by your body when your skin is exposed to sunlight. The sunlight triggers a reaction that occurs in your skin to produce vitamin D. Vitamin D is not present in large amounts in food. This means that if you do not get enough sunlight you run the risk of being Vitamin D deficient. 

Vitamin D facilitates the body's intake of certain nutrients like calcium and phosphorus which is crucial for the development of bones. It also is important for your immune system, cardiovascular system, muscle function and brain development. If you don't get enough of vitamin D you are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease, fatigue, dementia, depression and more. The CDC estimates that about one-fourth of the American population is at risk of not getting sufficient amounts of vitamin D.

Some signs that you might be vitamin D deficient include feeling down, bone and muscle ache, head sweating and fatigue. People with darker skin are more susceptible to Vitamin D deficiency because they need on average 10 times more sun exposure to produce the same amount of vitamin as those with light skin. Also, people over the age of 50, pregnant women, and those that spend the majority of their time indoors and with the majority of their skin covered...which basically describes everyone in Chicago during winter.

If you have any questions about vitamin D, send us an email at info@midwesthealthchicago.com or call (312) 470-6655. You can make an appointment with a doctor to determine if you are vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D supplements in the form of injections are also available.
