7. Hair Loss

I've spent years trying to fill up my bald spots by using different kinds of hair serums, but to no avail. When I told my hairdresser about my troubles, she told me that I'm probably lacking important nutrients in my body that promote hair growth.

When I consulted my doctor and got a blood test, I learned that I have an iron and vitamin D deficiency. My dermatologist told me that most people who suffer from hair loss are lacking both of those essential vitamins that are much-needed for healthy hair.

8. Malabsorption

This sign is very important. If you're not absorbing this vitamin properly, you need to see your doctor immediately.

It's likely that you're experiencing all these other signs of vitamin D deficiency if you're not able to absorb certain foods properly, causing you a lot more problems than just a vitamin deficiency.

9. Feeling weak

If you can barely lift a bag of groceries, it's a sign that your body is having trouble absorbing calcium, which keeps your bones healthy.

If you don't take this symptom seriously, you may be at risk of osteoporosis in the future. Ask your doctor for a blood test to check your vitamin D levels.

10. You stay indoors often

I cannot stress how important it is to get that healthy dose of sunlight on your skin. Bright light does more than just brighten your mood, (which is pretty great if you ask me).

The sun is considered our body's main source of vitamin D, so it's important we get a healthy dose of sunshine a few times a week.

If leaving your house isn't much of an option, open your windows and let those rays shine in.

Talk to your doctor about taking vitamin D supplements if you have any of these signs.
