Vitamin D Deficiency and Mag/Cal

Hello,

I was found to have a Vitamin D deficiency.  Is this often seen with, or does it affect, magnesium and calcium deficiencies?  

What can cause the deficiencies and what are the symptoms?

Thank you.
Are you (or the subject of the question) male or female?

Insufficiency may cause symptoms. Bone loss occurs and osteomalacia, in adults (rickets in children), results due to Vitamin D deficiency. Impaired Calcium absorption occurs due to very low levels of the vitamin D. You did not mention your Calcium levels and suggest getting it checked.  Magnesium (Mg) works with Calcium and there are no issues unless there is Mg depletion due to disease factors or high doses of calcium intake of individuals with poor renal function. The causes of Vitamin D deficiency could be lack of sunlight, food sources of vitamin D, renal or liver failure, hypoparathyroidism, gastrectomy, and medications (such as anticonvulsants, corticosteroids). Vitamin D is available through our foods - Fortified milk, breakfast cereals, egg yolks, fatty fish, fish oils, and the sun. Sit at a window with the sun shining in for about 1/2 hour (few times a week) and that will help you get enough Vitamin D. Hoped that answered your question.
