Did you know that Vitamin D deficiency is associated with insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, body pains, muscle weakness and depression?

Are you experiencing insomnia, fatigue, weight gain, body pains, muscle weakness or are feeling depressed?

You may be suffering from Vitamin D Deficiency!  Vitamin D deficiency is common in the U.S. population. According to a study performed by the Department of Public Health & Social Work, Vitamin D deficiency was considerably more common in those who worked indoors, were overweight, had high blood pressure, low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level, and were not getting enough daily sun exposure.

The most precise method to measure how much vitamin D is in your body is the 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood test. A level of 30 milliliter to 50 mL is considered sufficient for healthy people. A level between 20mL and 30mL indicates insufficiency and a level less than 20 mL indicates vitamin D deficiency.

Fulfilling vitamin D requirements is difficult to attain through just food and supplements alone once you become deficient. To properly satisfy vitamin D levels after being diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency, patients should seek their physician for prescription high dose vitamin D replacement and or vitamin D injections. You may be surprised by the significant increase in your mood, energy level, sleep and excess weight loss achieved after your vitamin d levels are replaced.

Here at My Concierge MD, we offer testing for vitamin D deficiency, prescription vitamin D and vitamin D injections.
