Today I want to cover the warning signs of a vitamin D deficiency. However, it’s important to remember that a warning sign or symptom isn’t the real problem—it’s an indicator of the real problem. 

Seven warning signs of a vitamin D deficiency:
1. High blood pressure 
2. Low back pain 
3. High blood sugar 
4. High susceptibility to viruses 
5. Autoimmune conditions 
6. Daytime sleepiness 
7. Depression 

Let’s say you’re doing everything right, and you’re still deficient in vitamin D. There are a few reasons why this could happen. 

Top causes of a vitamin D deficiency (when you’re already getting vitamin D):
• Polymorphism (a vitamin D receptor mutation)
• You’re still not getting enough vitamin D (you need at least 10,000 IU)
• You have a problem with absorption (due to low zinc, low magnesium, a liver problem, a kidney problem, darker skin, or being overweight)

When you take a vitamin D supplement, you also need to take vitamin K2. The correct ratio is 10,000 IU of D3 to 100 mcg of K2. Vitamin K2 can help drive calcium into the bones and help prevent it from depositing in the arteries, joints, and other tissues.
