Identifying Vitamin D Deficiency and Exploring Injectable D3 Therapy as treatment

Although vitamin D is essential for our growth, development, and bodily repair, our bodies don’t always produce as much as we need. If you are diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency, your healthcare provider may suggest a treatment of injectable D3 therapy, or calcitriol, which is the manmade form of vitamin D (or vitamin D3). This is a physician-administered dose of vitamin D3 that is injected directly into your bloodstream.

  • Being a dark-skinned individual (which requires more D3)
