Stunted Hair Growth? HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR VITAMIN D LEVEL?

bump.

My vitamin D level just came back as a 16!!! Low. I have an appointment scheduled next week with my doctor so hopefully I will be given a prescription for vitamin D. I am also anemic (weird because I am already taking supplements for that).

Anyway, thanks OP for this thread which prompted me to ask my doctor to test my vitamin D levels.

I am also vitamin D defficient and being a Muslim woman who covers completely when outside I don't get nearly enough sun ( I no longer have my private patio to get some sun). Many black americans have this problem. I always encourage muslim women in my community to get checked because of the affect it can have on you physically and emotionally. I wanted to mention that the best vitamin D to take is D3, as there are 2 different kinds.

Thanks for this post. I was recently diagnosed with low vitamin D. I've certainly experienced stunt hair growth. I am looking forward to results from vitamin D supplements.
