Vitamin D, Parathyroid Hormone, and Acroosteolysis in Systemic Sclerosis.

 

Low levels of vitamin D may reflect silent malabsorption and might be a risk factor for secondary hyperparathyroidism and bone resorption. Y. Braun-Moscovici. J Rheumatol. Oct 1 2008. (Also see: Vitamin D Deficiency, Calcinosis, and Bone Resorption)

Hi Janey ,

 

That is one of the blood tests my doctor ordered today to see if I have a Vit D deficiency. She said that could cause hair loss, too. I try to walk a mile every day, so it isn't like I haven't been in the sunshine. I also take Calcium + D twice a day. I would be shocked if it came back low but you never know!!!

 

Take care, Everyone.

Margaret
