5 Symptoms to Know You are Lacking Vitamin D

according to the Harvard School of Public Health, 1 billion people worldwide have a vitamin D deficiency. Here are top 5 signs that you might be d-ficient.

1. Broken bones
You stop building bone mass around age 30, and a lack of vitamin D can speed up or worsen osteoporosis symptoms. It’s nearly impossible for anyone to satisfy vitamin D needs through diet. It really requires a three-pronged attack: sun exposure, supplements, and food.

2. Noticeable—and unexpected—weakness
Muscle strength isn’t just a matter of pumping iron. While having a vitamin D deficiency can leave you feeling overly exhausted, even when you’re able to get enough shut-eye, proper vitamin D intake helps you maintain power in every fiber of your being, whether you’re young or old.

3. Excessive sweating
It’s often difficult to tell if newborns are deficient, but a sweaty forehead is one of the first noticeable symptoms. The same rings true for adults, so if you’re “glowing” while your activity level remains steady, you may want to consider a vitamin D test.

4. A down-in-the-dumps mood
A depression diagnosis is often actually linked to a shortage of vitamin D. While the jury is still out about why, the Vitamin D Council says that the mineral may work in the same brain areas—and impact the same hormones, like serotonin—as those that affect mood.

5. Chronic pain
Those who are diagnosed with arthritis may actually be shy of enough D, as a deficiency can cause joints and muscles to ache, too. If your discomfort lasts for several weeks, ask your doctor if a vitamin D deficiency could be the cause—and if your treatment program should include the vitamin.
