Re: Vitamin D Deficiency - Need information

When you go out and hike or walk the dogs, what time of day is it, and how are you dressed? If you go out only in the early morning and late evening dressed like a conservative woman in Afghanistan, you might not be getting much sun exposure on your skin to make vitamin D.

Also, does your diet contain vitamin D containing foods, such as some types of fish, egg yolks, and vitamin D fortified foods?
