Vitamin D is necessary for a person, because its main purpose is the absorption of phosphorus and calcium in the body, without which bone problems begin.
Olga Limorenko, a traumatologist-orthopedist of the first qualification category, explained that a whole group of biologically active substances is hidden under the general name "vitamin D". With their deficiency, there is a violation of calcium metabolism and a decrease in its level in the blood.
Chronic lack of this vitamin leads to the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension and autoimmune diseases.
In the body, the processes of calcium transfer from the bones of the skeleton to the bloodstream begin to activate, which ultimately leads to osteoporosis, - said the doctor in an interview with "Arguments and Facts".
Earlier, an American pharmacist presented a list of unusual signs of vitamin D deficiency from personal practice, NEWS.ru wrote. For example, people should look for acne, cardiac arrhythmias, high blood pressure, tearfulness and fatigue, irritable bowel and bloating, body aches and muscle weakness.
