Quick Dose: Are You Vitamin D Deficient?

A simple blood draw from your primary care physician can determine whether or not you have a vitamin D deficiency. You may also feel tired and experience some general, unexplained aches and pains. Obesity, certain chronic diseases, your ethnic background and the amount of time you spend indoors can also impact your vitamin D levels.
