Vitamin D which is also known as the sunshine vitamin is a must for the overall function of the body. Before being a health blogger what I know about the vitamin D is that it is only essential for the better bone health. After being so much into health care now I can say that vitamin D is not only meant for the bone and teeth but it also plays an important role in absorption of magnesium and phosphorous and boosts the immune system, prevent multiple sclerosis, heart diseases, and bacterial or viral infections and much more. I know that most of the readers are not aware of this fact.

Vitamin D deficiency is prevalent these days. Most of us are suffering from this or know someone who has vitamin d deficiency. The factor that leads to vitamin d deficiency are limited outdoors activities and sun protection all the time.

Here I m going to list down all the major signs and symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. If you notice any of them rush to your doctor and get examined.

 

Weak Muscle and Bone:

We all know that vitamin D is must for bones, muscles, and teeth. If you have achy bones, Weekend teeth, or muscles it may be a sign that you are not getting enough of the sunshine vitamin.

Feeling Blue:

If you are constantly feeling blue or depression then you should definitely go for vitamin D test. Researchers have found that women with low levels of vitamin D are more likely to be depressed or struggle with deep feelings of sadness than women with high level of vitamin D.

Pain Sensitivity:

People who struggle with chronic pain often have inadequate vitamin D levels. I am suffering from a chronic migraine and vitamin D deficiency as well. If you are suffering from chronic pain It might be possible that you are vitamin d deficient.

Gum Disease:

People with lower levels of vitamin D are more likely to suffer from swelling, reddening, and bleeding of gums.

 High Blood Pressure:

Vitamin D deficiency is critical for your heart too. When you don’t get enough vitamin D, it will increase the risk of hypertension. Hypertension forces the heart to work hard, increasing your risk of stroke and heart disease.

 Fatigue and Sleepiness:

People with lower levels of vitamin D lack the energy during the day and may have a constant feeling of fatigue.

Mood Swings:

Vitamin D plays a role in serotonin production. This “feel good hormone” has a significant impact on our mood.if you are having unusual mood swings get your vitamin D level examined.

Overweight:

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, stored in our fat cells. People who are overweight or obese therefore need more vitamin D. It leads to increase in energy expenditure, a mechanism of weight loss. Studies have consistently reported an increased risk of vitamin D deficiency in those who are obese. However, the underlying explanations and direction of causality are unclear

Head Sweater:

Excessive head sweating is a common, early sign of vitamin D deficiency. In fact, physicians used to ask new mothers about head sweating in their newborns for this very reason.

Allergies:

Adequate vitamin D can reduce allergies. A study done on 6000 individuals showed that people with low vitamin D levels are more susceptible to allergies.

You can fulfill your daily dose of the vitamin by direct sun exposure. To gain more vitamin D neither morning nor evening sunlight is good. The best time is noon. UVA rays of sunlight are constant during the whole time but UVB rays which are required for the development of vitamin D are high at noon. So to use the sun to provide you with maximum vitamin D, middle of the day is best.

How Does Diabetes Affect Oral Health?

Diabetes slows the healing process of the body and also reduces the body’s resistance to infection.  That is why oral infections are more severe in case of people who have diabetes.  This goes without saying that you are more prone to oral health problems if you have uncontrolled diabetes. This happens because uncontrolled diabetes impairs leukocytes or White Blood Cells, the body’s primary defense against infections. Diabetes also increases the salivary glucose level and decreases the flow of saliva. . This creates the perfect setting for the fungal infections to cope up such as thrush.
