5 Signs of Vitamin D Deficiency

We’ve been hearing about the many benefits of vitamin D for a number of years but research shows that up to a billion people worldwide are still not getting enough of this vital nutrient and that can cause a host of health problems. Even if you are making healthy choices every day, eating a well-balanced diet, exercising regularly and getting enough sleep, you still may find yourself plagued by issues that could be caused by a lack of vitamin D. Although a blood test for vitamin D levels is widely available, not a lot of doctors consider it that important, and few people are aware of the importance of getting tested. There are other ways to find out you are not getting enough vitamin D and unfortunately, some of them are even less pleasant than a blood test.

1. Sweating

Just about everyone sweats from time to time, like on a hot and humid summer day or when you are in the middle of a good workout at the gym. It’s those times you are sweating when you don’t expect it that you should be concerned about. If you find that you are breaking out into a sweat just hanging around it could mean your vitamin D levels are way down there and you should arrange to have it checked out.
