Vitamin d

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -
In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we explore the benefits of vitamin d.
 
In Henrico Dr. William Ferrar is filling in his patients on how much vitamin d they need.
 
Vitamin d is used for specific rare illnesses; studies have shown that taking the pills help those illnesses.  
 
Low vitamin d is associated with many conditions but few have been studied with supplements of vitamin d vs. "sugar pill."  The level of vitamin d goes up but the measurement of the disease prevention is not measured.
 
Those who don't digest may need supplemental vitamin d.
