Why do Vitamin D deficiencies occur?

• Insufficient exposure to sunlight and time out of doors due to: working long hours indoors ill health a sedentary, indoor lifestyle (a technology-crazed youth) total covering of the body with clothing for cultural or religious purposes use of sun screens (SPF 30 reduces body’s ability to synthesize vit D by 95%)

• Advancing age: ageing decreases conversion of vit D to its active form

• Unhealthy lifestyle factors: smoking, obesity

• Varying skin type: darker skins need more sunlight; lighter skins avoid sunlight

• Insufficient dietary intake and diets – low carb, no dairy

• Air pollution: particles in air block uvb rays

• Certain medications: cholesterol lowering drugs, steroids – reduce absorption of vit D from the gut
