Vitamin D level?: I check the vitamin D level on all of my patients. Almost all patients I see who are not supplementing are low. Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin and you have to be careful to not become toxic. Have your level checked.

Vitamin D Levels: No most people are Vitamin D deficient because of diet and sun exposure. Supplementation will solve the problem. Good idea to get tested.
