Weekly Health Tips

Vitamin D Deficiency & Fibromyalgia

Posted: 06.23.2014

People with fibromyalgia who also have low blood levels of vitamin D may receive some benefit from supplementation.  In a recent study of women with fibromyalgia who were deficient in vitamin D, researchers gave some of the women vitamin D supplements for 25 weeks and then tracked them for another 24 weeks.  The women who received the supplements reported less morning fatigue and pain than those who didn't take the vitamin D.  Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to chronic pain in previous studies.  Consult with your doctor before starting supplementation.
