What are the signs of vitamin D deficiency? Vitamin D greatly influences the systems of our body from ensuring calcium supply to our bones to strengthening our immune system. We normally get this vitamin from foods, supplements, and the sun’s rays, but when something goes wrong and we face vitamin D deficiency, our body systems may break.

For example, sweating that seems a little excessive or not brought on by anything particularly obvious, however, can be a sign that you’re lacking vitamin D. So what other signs show a deficiency, how serious is the problem, and what can you do to get more of it? Here at Bright Side, we’ve studied the most common symptoms of low vitamin D levels and we want to tell you what we’ve found.

Your bones often ache 1:35

FORT MEADE, Md. Sweat drips down the face of a U.S. Army Reserve Soldier from the 200th Military Police Command during a Spin class as part of a Performance Triad program organized by the command and hosted on Fort Meade, Maryland, May 9, 2017. The three-week fitness program took place from May 5-25 to help Soldiers who had either failed the Army Physical Fitness Test or had been on the Army Body Fat Composition program. The camp focused on the triad of overall health: physical fitness, nutrition and sleep, by providing education and personalized coaching to Soldiers in all three of those phases of life and more: By Master Sgt.

- Without vitamin D, your bones can’t absorb the necessary amount of calcium to create healthy bone tissue, causing a weakening of the bones known as osteomalacia.
- In addition to aching bones and muscles, a lack of vitamin D can cause chronic pain throughout the entire body. This debilitating condition is known as fibromyalgia, and it makes life a living nightmare for those who suffer from it!
- Suffering from your 4th or 5th virus this year? It may be because a lack of vitamin D is causing your immune system to work poorly.
- It’s 4 pm and you feel like you have two bricks as eyelids and barely have the strength to get up from your desk. Sound familiar? There could be quite a few reasons for this feeling. But it can also be due to a lack of vitamin D.
- Does it seem like your small wounds and injuries take longer to heal than everyone else’s? But this kind of slow healing can also be because of a lack of (say it with me) vitamin D!
- The average person loses anywhere from 50 to 100 hairs from their head every day. But if you suffer from a lack of vitamin D, you can lose way more than that, at least enough to notice that something’s definitely not right.
- According to Psychology Today, vitamin D is the only vitamin that is also a hormone. In studies on the relationship between vitamin D and depression, scientists discovered traces of the vitamin on cells found in the regions where depression resides.
- Vitamin D can be attained by spending time outside. According to The Arthritis Foundation, spending 10-15 minutes in the sun every other day or so can help replenish your vitamin D levels. Even sitting by an open window can help give you more vitamin D!

    I have a question is there such a thing as vitamin d infusions? I'm taking 50,000 units weekly along with 2,000 units daily and my level won't rise past 10.6! I know normal is somewhere between 30-60. And my Dr is trying to help me with this but I keep forgetting to ask about the infusions

    I've had systemic lupus for 24 years. As you know having this disease prevents you from being in the sun. It causes lupus flares. So my vitamin D is rock bottom right now and my doctor is concerned. She sent a prescription for extra strength (prescription strength ) vitamin D, but my insurance won't cover it. Would the over the counter work as good? She said we needed to bring it up quickly. Your list applies to me today.

    Dark skin needs 2 hours of sunlight for it to absorb into the body for vitamin D. 15 mins will not be enough for darker skin!

    I did share... I experience 2 or 3 symptoms... Mr. Bright side, I saw one video on fruit codes... ie if starts with 9 its organic, if starts with 8 its genetically modified n if starts with 4 its hybreed n grown with chemical fertilisers... Now real thing... I came across with code starting with 3... May be in other youtuber's country that code starting with 3 doesn't exist but in Canada I saw once... Was it a mistake on code giving? Can you dig down n make a video? Eagerly waiting for your video input rather output...😊

    Wow. This video is on point! I am extremely deficient in Vitamin D and it described every symptom I’m suffering.

    for more Vitamin D, go out into the sun, but wear sun screen and protective clothing so you don't actually get any sun exposure and no Vitamin D.... Some sun exposure isn't bad for us. You're not going to get skin cancer with exposure to the sun of 10-15 minutes a few days a week, and if you have more melanin in your skin because of your ethnicity, you'd actually need longer exposure times to absorb the Vitamin D, and much longer exposure times to get any negative side effects of UVA/B.

    How about measuring your Vit D in your blood, that would give you a much better way to evaluate your need for more or less Vit. D,

    I have many of these symptoms- I've been tested several times and I KNOW I'm deficient. They say the numbers should be between 60-100, mine are down in the low teens. I take a supplement but I think I might have some issues with absorbing it. I also live in northern Minnesota-so the sun isn't very helpful most of the year. Knowing all this, my doctor(s) never seem to bothered about it. Something is wrong with that. But as I'm sure most of you know- our medical system is majorly flawed. So same ole same ole...what can you do...

    Melody Rosenberg So after taking it that long, it finally did help?! Did you take over the counter vit. D2?

    msgottaneedtoknow I had many of these symptoms and my vitamin d level was 12. It took 2 years to get it up to healthy levels. What a difference! Keep going!
