Very useful to know.

I was too low on vit D a couple of years ago. I eat vit D pills during winter. We only have a few hours of sun during daytime.

Same here, I’ve been vitamin d deficient for years now and it runs in my family

I am currently vitamin d deficient, we don’t know why because I’ve been on supplements for years but I am currently in somewhat of an episode…

Thank you for this,
Take care,
Meg

I have a vitamin D deficiency and am currently supplementing with D3.
I also have low Testosterone levels and found out that a vitamin D deficiency can lower Testosterone levels.
Hopefully now my D and Testosterone will rise
