A calcium supplement should also be used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No.: Low vitamin d levels are not caused by cancer. We get vitamin d from diet and from sun exposure. Use of sun screens or avoiding sun cuts down on vitamin d production, and if the diet doesn't have enough, vitamin d deficiency can occur. This is a very common issue. The level needed to prevent osteoporosis is higher than we used to think, so what used to be called normal is now low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why are people with low cholesterol more likely to get cancer than people with higher cholesterol? Is this related to their vitamin d levels?
Statistical fluke: Healthy people with low cholesterol don't get more cancer. This is a statistical fluke of some studies. In some studies, people with low cholesterol or vit d have an occult cancer, or are smokers, or are too skinny (due to their illness), and then these people tend to show more cancers later. Statistical associations can be misleading and do not prove cause-effect. ...Read more
