Vitamin D deficiency is linked to fatigue and can potentially be alleviated with supplementation, but more research is required.

lack of sleep

Newer studies show that vitamin D deficiency is linked to sleep problems in both children and adults, but the exact mechanisms are still not well understood.

bone/back pain

03

Low vitamin D levels may cause bone and back pain, with varying effects on lower back pain, and are common in conditions like arthritis and chronic pain.

hair loss

04

Hair health can be affected by stress, diseases, and nutrient deficiencies, with low vitamin D levels linked to hair loss in women, especially in cases of alopecia areata.

loss of apettite

05

The initial signs of vitamin D deficiency may include a reduced appetite.

Depression

06

Vitamin D deficiency is linked to depression, especially in older adults, and while the effects of vitamin D supplements are mixed, some reviews indicate they can help alleviate depressive symptoms.

Frequent illness

Vitamin D supports the immune system, and low levels may increase the risk of respiratory infections, but supplementation up to 4,000 IU daily could help reduce this risk.
