Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin D is required for optimal bone and muscle health and appears to have a wide range of other important functions in the body. Low vitamin D may be associated with several diseases including MS. In Tasmania, the risk of becoming vitamin D deficient is particularly high in winter and spring.
