ARE YOU AT RISK OF VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY?

Find out by taking this short quiz below!

1. Is your ethnic background half or more than half African, Indian, Southeast Asian, Latin American, or Arabic?

2. Is your body mass index (BMI) 30 or greater?

BMI reflects body weight adjusted for a person's height. Multiply your weight (in pounds) by 703 and divide by your height (in inches) squared to find your BMI. If your BMI is higher than 25, you're overweight, according to CDC standards. (Example: 125lbs x 703 = (87875) / (63.5)^2 = 22. 22 is normal BMI.)

3. Were you a breast-fed infant who was not given vitamin or formula supplements?

4. Do you have fatigue or recurring muscle, bone or joint pain?

5. Are you fifty years or older?

6. Do you wear sunscreen/use cosmetics that contain sunscreen of SPF 8 or greater before you go outdoors?

7. Do you rarely (less than three times a week) spend time outdoors between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m?

8. Are you a woman?
