Get your vitamin D checked at CMC Dubai

Vitamin D deficiency is a common condition in Dubai and means you are not getting enough vitamin D to stay healthy.

Vitamin D is vital to help your body absorb calcium which in turn is important to maintain strong bones. Vitamin D also helps your nervous system, immune system and muscles.

The main way to get Vitamin D is absorption through your skin, from supplements and from your diet. The amount of vitamin D you need varies largely based on age, with more needed once you are an adult.

The main causes of vitamin D deficiency are:

  • Poor diet
  • Malabsorption
  • Not enough exposure to sunlight
  • Medication that interferes with the ability of your body to convert or absorb vitamin D
  • Liver and or kidney conditions

What are the risks associated with Vitamin D deficiency:

  • Loss of bone density leading to osteoporosis
  • Rickets (in children)
  • Osteomalacia (leading to weak and painful bones and muscle weakness)

Research also suggests that vitamin D deficiency may also contribute to other health problems.
