Too little intake: The body maintains stores of vitamin d in the fat cells. It takes a long time for a deficiency to develop, and a long time to correct it using typical over-the-counter supplements. People normally get vitamin d from sun exposure and a few food sources (liver, eggs) as people have moved indoors and don't eat as much eggs & liver, vitamin d deficiency has become more common.
