    I fail to understand why ingesting additional vitamin D even is controversial. As a supplement, it is dirt cheap, and the benefits have been well know for many years. As a person who lives in the tropics, where the sun is shining on most days, I am quite fortunate; however, this is one supplement which is readily available to just about anyone.

    One obvious way to determine whether you have an adequate level of vitamin D is to get tested. On Medicare, my tests are free and I check about every 18 months, because I rely on a combination of seasonal sun exposure and supplementation in the winter months. Your health insurance might cover the cost of a test but even if it doesn't, it's not expensive and it's the most conclusive way of determining a sufficiency. My doctor and I are both happy with my level of 82 ng/mL.
