The Dangers of Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin D deficiency can cause a number of health problems throughout the lifespan. During infancy, it has been found to cause poor bone development and poor immune health. During adolescence, vitamin D deficiency can contribute to aggressive behavior as well as anxious and depressive moods, according to a new University of Michigan study.
The best source of vitamin D is natural sunlight but soon the weather will turn cooler and we will all head back indoors, putting us at risk of vitamin D deficiency. As soon as the jackets start to come out, all Michigan residents should resume taking a vitamin D supplement. Vitamin D is covered by Medicaid. Ask your provider.
