Another Vitamin D Deficiency Diagnosis

I have been telling all of my friends and family and anyone else who would listen, about my story and trying to convince them to get tested for Vitamin D Deficiency. I got another call a couple of days ago from a good friend who told me to "add another one to your list." When I get a call like that, I am always torn between a feeling of joy, knowing they have been diagnosed and feeling angry because they went this long without a diagnosis.

This particular friend is a survivor of cancer. I watched her come through a horrifying fight for her very life, some 25 or 30 years ago. With all that is known about Vitamin D Deficiency, you would think someone would have thought to test her Vitamin D Level. Even though it is not routine, someone should have done that for her. Someone who is trained and paid to know. I think I will always be angry about that.

I wonder why, in some circles, it seems to be, that they would rather see people sick and suffering. Vitamin D3 is pretty cheap compared to the costs of drugs and treatments for illness.

Get tested now, don't wait. I have seen this change lives, including my own. There is even the possibility that it has and will prevent many illnesses or even deaths. Getting tested and treated for Vitamin D Deficiency may just be the most important thing you will ever do for yourself and your family and friends. If you have a story like mine, share it. Tell everyone who will listen and even those who won't. This is one very simple thing, that gives us all, the potential to make a difference.
