Vitamin D

Just wanted to encourage all to get a Vitamin D deficiency test. I just found out that I am severly deficient, and my Endo, said they are finding out that so many people are testing low, which can affect PCOS, obesity, fibromyalgia, osteomalacia, which is what I have, endometrial hyperplasia, and a few others, if your older you may not be able to absorb it well through the skin, if your younger, and lather up with sunscreen, it keeps you from getting the vitamin D you need from the sun, if you live in northern states, you are not exposed for long enough periods, through the summer, before your back in doors, if your a person of color, you are ten times more likely to be deficient as the color of your skin keeps you from absorbing the vitamin D. If your housebound, or stay mostly indoors, this can also make you deficient. Even teens are coming up short. Hope this might help someone, I sure would never have guessed that was my problem. Bell.

Since you realized that you were deficient in Vitamin D, have you started supplementing with Vitamin D at all? If so, what are your results? Do you feel better? I am starting to hear so much about this being tied to PCOS.
