Vit D shortage

Post by Gwenoakes »

Hi, just wondered if anyone has been diagnosed with vit D shortage? I have just had a phone call from the doctor who did a blood test on Terry the other week to tell me this and his recommendation is to take a vit D supplement and he stressed not the multi vitamins, just plain vit D. As he takes one capsule of cod liver oil which includes vit D each day and you are not to over dose on it I wondered if anyone else has been diagnosed with this shortage and what they are taking.
Apparently it is likely to have been caused because he has had skin cancer on his face/head and always wears a hat and loads of sun cream, although he still works outside throughout the year. Thanks.
