By ICIM member John Young MD: Vitamin D: Don't dare leave home without it
As a family practitioner, I not only have the blessing to listen and learn from my patients but the opportunity to be an observer of the results of our distinct American lifestyle. We eat fast, fat, and processed foods all too often, get little regular physical activity, and life’s stresses have a profound effect on our physical and emotional health. For the past few years, I have made it a routine practice to look at vitamin D levels among the patients in my clinical practice. While the literature states that as many as 75 percent or more Americans do not have optimal vitamin D levels, I find vitamin D deficiency may go beyond that shocking statistic.
