Could Vitamin D Deficiency Be Worsening My Neuropathy?

In a word, yes. Nerve function is influenced by many factors, but numerous and recent studies have shown that those with neurological disorders often have a vitamin D deficiency. What does this mean? It means that although there is no proven causation, there is at least a proven link between the two. You can be tested in our office for vitamin D deficiency, and recieve nutrition coaching. There are many foods and supplements out there, but there are some in which the vitamin D is more "bioavailable," or more easily absorbed and used by the body. Our doctor and staff can guide you towards which treatments will be most beneficial for you.
