Vitamin D deficiency
It is not uncommon to have a lack of vitamin D – around 24% of men and 22% of women aged 19 - 64 years are vitamin D deficient.
Vitamin D deficiency can occur because:
Our body has an increased need for vitamin D at certain times.
Our body cannot make enough vitamin D.
Not enough vitamin D is being gained from our diet.
A lack of vitamin D (known as insufficiency) can cause a general sense of not being well – generally tired, perhaps with vague aches and pains.
While actual vitamin D deficiency can cause muscle weakness and painful bones. Children with vitamin D deficiency can experience poor growth, tooth delay and find that their bones start to bow due to a condition known as Rickets.
