Ask the RD: The Importance of Vitamin D

As a registered dietitian, I know a lot about the importance of vitamin D levels. In the area that I live in (Michigan), it is common to have low vitamin D levels due to the cold weather that we have for at least six months of the year and lack of sunshine. Therefore, it is very important to get your vitamin D levels checked and to take supplements as necessary.


The importance of vitamin D is very important to me on a personal as well a professional level, because in the elderly population which are the patients that I work with, low vitamin D levels are common. It is very common for my residents to be on vitamin D supplements as well as having their levels checked quite often.

I completed my Master’s thesis (a 29-page research paper that took lots of time and effort) on the effects of vitamin D deficiency in the elderly. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus.* It also helps to promote bone health.* Since vitamin D is so essential, it is important to have optimal levels of vitamin D.*
