The present generation lifestyle has left us with multiple deficiencies!! Most of them are related to faulty food habits and a few are linked to our lifestyle!! We have become sort of nocturnal animals!! We work most of the times indoors or even at nights!! This habit has made us more prone to Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin is popularly known as Sunshine Vitamin and is vital constituent for calcium absorption and healthy gut!! There are no food substitutes for Vitamin D, and any variation from normal range results in deficiency!!
Increased risk and cases of Vitamin D deficiency, various studies were conducted pertaining to the treatment and a new guideline was put forth, treatment is now based on new guidelines which are as follows –
Vitamin D deficiency was treated with vitamin D supplements which are basically of 2 types – Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3. Earlier the supplement was randomly chosen as both helped in correction. But a recent study has proposed that Vitamin D3 is twice effective in treating Vitamin D deficiency when compared to Vitamin D2!!
Vitamin D3 has proved to increase the levels of Vitamin D in the body more efficiently and thus concentrates on long-term good health!
If your Physician changes the management of your deficiency, don’t wonder; his effort is to give you a quality care!!!
