VIT D DEFICIENCY & S.A.D. LIGHTS
I'm 63 and have been diagnosed with osteoporosis & vitamin D deficiency. I also have Seasonal Affective Disorder. I haven't used my "lights" regularly for several years. However, I'm wondering now if full-spectrum lights without the lens over the bulbs would help me get more vitamin D in my system.
I have 8 full-spectrum 4' tubes that have a lens over the fixture, which I understand prevents the UVA and UVB rays to hit my skin.
FYI, I also have very agressive Restless Leg Syndrome. I'm allergic to Requip, so use .25 -.5mg of Klonoppin daily to treat that. Also, if I use the lights too much I feel very aggetated and have more difficulty sleeping.
Thanks for your consideration.
