1. There is evidence that low vitamin D in ilnesses listed above may be one of the results not one of the causes. 2. Common tests of vit. D level measure just wrong metabolites of D in the body and lead to wrong conclusions. 3. Also there is evidence that vit. D supplementation suppresses innate immune system. Guess the consequences.
