Research article! Link between dementia and vitamin D confirmed.

Have memory issues? Check if your vitamin D level is low. Your doctor likely won’t point it out to you. My mom, who has dementia at 57 (brain scan confirmed) and has always had memory issues, had low vitamin D on tests for years before she heard she should check her results. I have memory issues too – this is one of the main symptoms of M.E./CFS and fibromyalgia.
