I have something important to tell you while we wander in my spring garden.
Do NOT take it for granted that because you are regularly in the garden you are making enough vitamin D from the sun.
Vit D is important for calcium absorption and the creation of strong bones.
A chance inclusion in my routine blood test revealed that I have a severe deficiency.
My doctor was calling me in for an immediate consult and a bone density test which revealed that I already have a loss of bone density.
I thought my constantly "broken feet" hobble was because of too many years retailing!
Especially if you live in Tasmania,
or extreme northern areas,
please talk to your doctor about vitamin D.
It was the last thing I expected.
It's probably one of the least talked about vitamins.
I am on a massive 80 000ius a week and have every confidence that my level will be much improved in a few months when we check it again.
