Doctors have recently found that the majority of those who live in cool climates -whether omnivore, vegetarian or vegan- are vitamin D deficient. All this is in spite of the fact that some fish contain vitamin D and milk, cheese and ice cream are fortified with Vitamin D for those who follow an omnivore or vegetarian diet. For vegans rules are the same. People who do not get adequate sun exposure or Vitamin D fortified foods are at the risk of developing Vitamin D deficiency unless they supplement.
Vitamin D deficiency classically causes rickets and osteomalacia (thin bones) and is more common in children who are vitamin D deficient. Prolonged breastfeeding is a cause of rickets in some children who dont get enough vitamin D in their breast milk. Excessive use of sunscreens can cause vitamin D deficiency. In adults, vitamin D deficiency can cause bone weakness and boney pain. Those who are especially encouraged to supplement with vegan vitamin D include those greater than age 50 that are at increased risk of developing vitamin D deficiency. People with limited sun exposure should also consider supplementation, especially if they are homebound and live in Northern Latitudes. People with dark skin dont get enough Vitamin D in their system. Those with fat malabsorption need to be supplemented with vitamin D and other fat soluble vitamins. Those who are obese and have a BMI greater than 30 often are vitamin D deficient and should supplement with vitamin D.
Vitamin D is essential in healthy bones and very important for those with fragile bones and an increased risk of bone fractures. Insufficient vitamin D can contribute to bone loss associated with aging by reducing calcium absorption.
The usual recommended dose is 800 IU per day, although doses up to 3000 mg/day have been taken by some individuals with known deficiency.
