Vitamin D has received increasing attention over the past few years—with
good reason. A surprising number of people of all ages worldwide have suboptimal
levels of this vitamin. Low levels may lead to unexplained diffuse body pains
and a variety of other symptoms and may also contribute to serious health
problems that only become apparent years later.
Vitamin D deficiency often goes undetected. But if considered as a possibility,
it can be easily diagnosed and remedied.
