No matter what age, our bodies will always need vitamin D. Unfortunately, seniors and other PWDs have difficulty getting their daily doses.
Yes, our bodies require a specific dose of vitamin D each day. The amount varies depending on the person’s age. Most young people don’t have to think about this, as we can simply leave our homes almost at any time.
However, seniors, especially those who require In-home Care barely get enough. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to many health problems. This is why Envision Home Health Care thinks it’s important to shed light on this topic.
As Caregivers in Texas, we want every senior to be safe from harm brought by the lack of vitamin D. So here are some symptoms of vitamin D deficiency:
- Weak muscles
- Depressed mood
- Weight gain
- Digestive issues
Vitamin D is an extremely important nutrient that your senior’s body needs to function properly. If your loved one is experiencing any of these symptoms, make sure to inform their doctor immediately so they can prescribe the right supplements.
