  • My doctor said that a much greater number of people are deficient in Vitamin D than previously thought. He gave me a simple blood test that showed that I am deficient. I now take an over the counter D supplement and have not been ill for the past year since beginning taking it. emoticon - by LISADI13
  • Yes, vitamin D is very important for bone formation.
    I get it by getting natural sunlight. - by JAMBUTTER
  • I live in Arizona and I have to remember this. I have to wear sunscreen whenever I go out so I know I am not getting enough vitamin D. I used to drink more milk. I need to drink more fat free/skim milk and take a D supplement. - by REEDSKI
