Numerous studies have shown a link between vitamin D deficiency and devastating health problems, many of which might well be avoided if we paid more attention to filling the D-gap. If your doc gives you the brush-off when you ask him or her to measure your vitamin D level, then you need to take charge. Educate yourself, get tested (or test yourself), and then work with your doc to develop a plan to get your D up to an optimal level. Your continued health may depend on it!
