Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin D deficiency — when the level of vitamin D in your body is too low — can cause your bones to become thin, brittle or misshapen.
Vitamin d deficiency is a serious problem. Deficiency of vitamin d leads to body pain, hair fall weakness, decrease body immunity and increased future risk for diabetes and cancer etc. Vitamin D also appears to play a role in insulin resistance, high blood pressure and immune function — and how this relates to heart disease and cancer — but this is still being investigated.
Vitamin D is essential for strong bones, because it helps the body use calcium from the diet.Vitamin D deficiency causes rickets, a disease in which the bone tissue doesn't properly mineralize, leading to soft bones and skeletal deformities.
Causes of Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin D deficiency can occur for a number of reasons:
1. Poor dietary intake of vitamin- d. This is likely if you follow a strict vegetarian diet, because most of the natural sources are animal-based, including fish and fish oils, egg yolks, fortified milk, and beef liver.
2. Your exposure to sunlight is limited. Because the body makes vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight, you may be at risk of deficiency if you are homebound, live in northern latitudes, wear long robes or head coverings for religious reasons, or have an occupation that prevents sun exposure.
3. Indian people have dark skin so that vitamin d generation is less. The pigment melanin reduces the skin's ability to make vitamin D in response to sunlight exposure. Some studies show that older adults with darker skin are at high risk of vitamin D deficiency.
4. Liver diseases
6. Gluten enteropathy celiac dieases
First of all proper diagnosis for cause of low vitamin d need to made by investigation and correct diagnosis. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for adults is 600 international units (IU) of vitamin D a day. That goes up to 800 IU a day for those older than age 70. To meet this level, choose foods that are rich in vitamin D. For example, choose fortified foods, such as milk and yogurt, and fatty fish, such as salmon, trout, tuna and halibut.
Don't overdo it, though. Very high levels of vitamin D have not been shown to provide greater benefits. In fact, too much vitamin D has been linked to other health problems.
