Hi I have vitamin d and c deficiency, I was wondering if it causes acid reflux, dizziness, lightheadedness when I walk and intrusive thoughts.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Inadequate intake

is the most common cause , rarely absorption problem also.
Recently more and more have Vit D , as people are avoiding exposure to sun . Body can not synthesize Some even call ' cancer preventing vitamin , as its levels are low in cancer patients . Vit C need , fresh citrus group is the best natural source , try to supplement and see the results.Speak to your doctor

In brief: May contribute but:

These may be factors but just taking D & C won't correct.
Reflux is often caused by H.pylori infection & low D reduces immunity.

There are many causes of dizziness/lightheadedness but its often caused by adrenal fatigue: http://www.adrenalfatigue.org/ Low C can contribute but we all need C every day through diet or supplements. I advise taking 500-2000 mg 2x/day. Lypospheric C is esp. well-absorbed. I also advise a good B complex. Herbs like Rhodiola and Ashwagandha can help. But I also advise seeing a good integrative Dr.
