Identifying Vitamin D Deficiency and Exploring Injectable D3 Therapy as treatment

Although vitamin D is essential for our growth, development, and bodily repair, our bodies don’t always produce as much as we need. If you are diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency, your healthcare provider may suggest a treatment of injectable D3 therapy, or calcitriol, which is the manmade form of vitamin D (or vitamin D3). This is a physician-administered dose of vitamin D3 that is injected directly into your bloodstream.

There are many reasons you or your loved one may be vitamin D deficienc, including the following:

  • You’re over age 50, and your kidneys are less efficient in processing vitamin D
  • Obesity is limiting your liver’s ability to process vitamin D
  • Exposure to environmental toxins is limiting your liver’s ability to process vitamin D
  • Alcoholism
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Pancreatic disease
  • Removal of the stomach
  • Being a dark-skinned individual (which requires more D3)
  • Being a breast-fed infant lacking sunlight exposure
  • Overactive parathyroid glands with kidney failure
  • A reliance on ACE inhibitors due to indigestion or acid reflux disease, resulting in poor vitamin processing
  • Intestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis, diverticulosis, or diverticulitis.
