Vitamin D deficiency can lead to a host of problems, such as rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, and other medical conditions such as liver disease.
Vitamin D deficiency can cause bone and joint pain, muscle cramps, fatigue, and mood changes. Children who are Vitamin D deficient during the first 10 years of their lives are at a higher risk to develop multiple sclerosis during their lifetime. Pregnant women suffering from Vitamin D deficiency face higher chances of pre-eclampsia and premature delivery. Obesity is also a factor, as obese people need 2-3 times more Vitamin D than the average person.
Vitamin D deficiency can also lead to calcium deficiency, as Vitamin D in its active form helps the body to absorb calcium more efficiently. Therefore, even if you are consuming enough calcium, deficient Vitamin D levels would lead to inefficient absorption of calcium, which could cause a calcium deficiency.
We highly recommend that people in the UAE test their Vitamin D levels on a regular basis!
