Vitamin D Levels Important

Posted:

Researchers are recommending another vitamin for patients with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, not because it could slow the disease, but because researchers at Emory University have found that those patients are typically low in Vitamin D levels. 

So, they're encouraging doctors to regularly check Vitamin D levels in elderly patients, since a deficiency could bring other problems including osteoporosis.
