vit d“Vitamin D deficiency causes osteopenia, osteoporosis and osteomalacia, increasing the risk of fracture. Unlike osteoporosis, which is a painless disease, osteomalacia causes aching bone pain that is often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia or chronic pain syndrome or is simply dismissed as depression.”
While working in a community mental health agency in another state, I had the pleasure of working with a psychiatrist who began requesting blood tests for everyone presenting with symptoms of depression before prescribing antidepressants. More than half of the patients were deficient in Vitamin D. Since most medications have side effects of one form or another, this is something to consider before beginning a prescription medication regimen. Always rule out a medical reason for mental health symptoms.
