Many, many hypos (and probably a lot of other people too) are d-deficient. Due to where most of us live, how much time we spend inside, and the amount of sunblock/sun lotion we use when we go outside.

D-deficiency symptoms are eerily like hypo-symptoms: muscle pain, weak bones/fractures, low energy and fatigue, lowered immunity, symptoms of depression and mood swings, and sleep irregularities.

It is well worth your while to have your levels of D tested AND getting the numbers, because once again, there is discussion going on whether or not the standard reference ranges are correct. In many places "25" is taken as the lower healthy limit, whilst there is research to indicate that within those same reference ranges 80 is a better number.
