Pain on left hand
My sister from last 2 days has been experiencing severe pain on her left hand till her shoulder. Doctor suspected it must be dengue which is common during rainy season so he suggested blood tests and vitamin D tests. Blood tests were fine but there was a massive drop in the vitamin D count. The reason for sudden drop in the count is still unknown. Now she's following a medicine course of Vitamin D and Calcium supplements. Are the symptoms caused due to some other disease? Please reply urgently. Thanking you.

The major cause of vitamin D deficiency is the lack of appreciation that sun exposure in moderation is the major source of vitamin D for most humans. Very few foods naturally contain vitamin D, and foods that are fortified with vitamin D are often inadequate to satisfy either a child's or an adult's vitamin D requirement. Sudden drop in Vitamin D levels can be due to diarrhea or some sort of infection. You must supplement (already advised) Vit D and calcium. Repeat vit D level within 6 months...
