Oral steroids bring on Vit D deficiency - The Times of India

Oral steroids bring on Vit D deficiency - The Times of India:

'via Blog this'

Steroids can cause vitamin D deficiency.

Avoiding sunlight can cause vitamin D deficiency.

Lupus patients get it from every direction!

It's a good idea to have a check on Vitamin D when having the regular blood test, and to have the doctor work out how much (more likely than whether or not) vitamin D supplement is a good idea.

Vitamin D helps us absorb our calcium and make strong bones - because the last thing any of us want on top of all our other problems is osteoporosis!

Pies go with peas,
Crackers go with cheese,
Dogs go with fleas,
Steroids go with vitamin Ds.
