"Vitamin D deficiency is characterized by the following symptoms: fatigue, acute bone, and muscle pain decrease energy to such level that the person is unable to perform daily activities, reduced immune system, mood change, hair loss. It was traditionally considered that Vitamin D had a great influence on skeletal system and its deficiency caused an exacerbation of rheumatic diseases. However, if we look at modern researches, we notice that the picture changes significantly, the number of illnesses increases. Rickets, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depression, autoimmune diseases - this is a small list of diseases, which have a high risk of developing when the body doesn’t have sufficient amount of vitamin D. "says endocrinologist.

As Dr. Sophie explains in our interview, it is unacceptable to take the vitamin D tablets without the doctor's recommendation!

If you are experiencing similar complaints presented in the article, it is desirable to come to the National Center of Surgery and do the special test in our laboratory to determine the amount of vitamin D in your blood. According to this analysis, the endocrinologist will prescribe an adequate dose of this vitamin.

Direct and natural source of vitamin D is sunlight. Salmon, egg yolk, milk, cereal, yogurt, orange also contain this vitamin. Keep in mind that even though this diet is beneficial, vitamin D stays in blood twice longer when a person enjoys the sunshine because vitamin D is formed in the skin.

According to the endocrinologist of our clinic, vitamin D deficiency screening is recommended for people within high-risk groups, for example:

• Patients with osteoporosis;

• People with malabsorption syndrome;

• Obese people;

• Persons with abnormal Vitamin D metabolism, such as chronic kidney disease.

Get some fresh air, give the body an opportunity to absorb the important vitamin. This is one of the easiest ways to maintain health, beauty, and longevity, "said Sophio Futuridze
