Vitamin D and Fatigue

Can very low vitamin d cause fatigue? I was just informed that I have very low vitamin d and told to take 6,000 UI of D3 per day from my specialist.


I am currently seeing her for CFS. I have extremely weak arms and legs (walking the stairs or overexertion)so I'm hoping that elevating my vitamin d will help - BUT will it help with the fatigue?

Vitamin D and Fatigue
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen

Yes, Vitamin D Deficiency Fatigue is a real thing. But there are Many reasons why you might be fatigued- having Vitamin D Deficiency is only one.

And if you are being treated for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, it's likely that you have a combination of problems that you are dealing with.


In addition to Vitamin D deficiency, the vast majority of my clients with Chronic Fatigue also have other vitamin and nutrient deficiencies that can cause fatigue such as:

Omega 3 fatty acids
Vitamin B-12
Other B vitamins
Coenzyme Q-10

As well, most of my clients with CFS have at least one food allergy that is contributing to their problems and at least one or more intestinal infections- including a candida overgrowth infection. CFS is RARELY caused by just one thing. So while Vitamin D Deficiency may Contribute to your fatigue, fixing it is unlikely to solve all of your problems.
