2. Low Vitamin D
Vitamin D is a nutrient that the body needs. Fortunately, it is very easy to get vitamin D as it comes from the sunshine. Unfortunately, more and more people are showing up with vitamin D deficiencies because they are not spending as much time outdoors as they used to. People who suffer from a vitamin D deficiency are more likely to develop hyperparathyroidism. Lack of vitamin D can cause many issues in the body, including damage to the parathyroid. When a person is deficient in vitamin D for a very long time, it can cause the parathyroid to start overproducing the parathyroid hormone. This can cause many health issues, such as osteoporosis to develop. If you are diagnosed with low vitamin D levels it is important to make sure that you are taking a supplement or spending more time in the outdoors. Adding small fish such as anchovies to your diet can help boost vitamin D.
