Vitamin D is an essential component in our body that helps us remain healthy and fit for a long time. It directly has an impact on your overall health, especially your bones and muscles. It even helps in regulating calcium levels, nervous system, musculoskeletal system, and teeth health, and it also helps boost bodily immune function, and even has links in the prevention of chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

Even while being one of the most important components in our body, many people worldwide suffer from this endocrine disease called vitamin D3 deficiency, which ends up weakening their bodies and immune systems and might result in them suffering from a lot of issues. This article explores this deficiency in-depth, explores the signs and symptoms of vitamin D3 deficiency and provides some insight into all of the tips and tricks you can use to battle this deficiency and bring your body back to being completely fit and healthy.

How To Know You Have It: Signs And Symptoms Of Vitamin D3 Deficiency, And What Can Happen If You Ignore It

Since not many people are aware of vitamin D3 deficiency and how harmful it can be, it's easy for us to ignore any of the signs and symptoms of vitamin D3 deficiency, no matter how prominent or obvious they may be. Listed below you'll find some of the most common symptoms that you need to watch out for in your daily life to confirm if you need to get tested for this deficiency or not:

  1. Fatigue and lethargy daily
  2. Constant pain in your bones
  3. Muscle weakness, aching or frequent cramps
  4. Frequent mood changes, like depression and anxiety
The thing to keep in mind is that symptoms vary for every person, and there are times when even if you are suffering from vitamin D3 deficiency, little to no symptoms show up until and unless you get tested.

How to Fight Off Vitamin D3 Deficiency

Vitamin D3 deficiency can be caused by a lot of factors such as obesity, not getting enough exposure to sunlight, not having enough vitamin D3-rich food, and many other things such as medical conditions (cystic fibrosis, Crohn's disease, liver & kidney disease) and medications (laxatives, steroids, weight loss drugs, seizure prevention drugs, etc.) It is important to know that this deficiency is quite common with folks all around the world, but don’t worry, listed below, you'll find certain ways, through which you can increase vitamin D3 levels in your body.

Sunlight Exposure

This way of fighting vitamin D3 deficiency is possibly the easiest and most sustainable way for anybody who is trying to increase vitamin D3 levels in their body. Sunlight is one of the best natural resources of vitamin D3, and soaking up the sunlight can help regulate the levels of this vitamin in your body. Some things you need to keep in mind though, are that long-term exposure can harm your skin, so you have to make sure to always use sunscreen for protection, and expose yourself to sunlight at regular intervals for maximum effect. 

D3-Rich Foods

Foods that are rich in vitamin D3 are an essential way to balance the levels of Vitamins in your body. Things like salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardines, rainbow trout, beef (cow) liver, mushrooms, egg yolks, and cod liver oil can be some of the best items to consume if you are suffering from vitamin D3 deficiency or if you wish to prevent it from happening.

Supplement Tablets

Oftentimes, only sunlight exposure and vitamin D3-high foods are not enough to help your body build enough of this vitamin. Especially if people who get affected by this are either over the age of 65, or have naturally darker skin, which can hinder the effects and absorption rate (malabsorption) of this vitamin from the sun's rays. Vitamin D3 tablets are a great way to sustain the levels of this vitamin in your body.


Vitamin D3 can be termed as a building block for your overall body system. Suffering from vitamin D3 deficiency can be extremely harmful in the long term. Therefore, you need to take action as soon as possible to ensure that the levels of vitamin D3 do not drop. Soaking up the sunlight, taking supplements, such as vitamin D3 tablets, and consuming foods with high levels of vitamin D3 can all collectively help maintain the balance and keep you healthy. The thing to always keep in mind is to watch out for the symptoms of vitamin D3 deficiency and ensure that you consult your physician for further steps.
