Before Surgery Check Your Vitamin D

Are you considering surgery? Before you do, read the October 6, 2010 issue of The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery which says that almost half of orthopedic surgery patients are low in vitamin D. This can hamper recovery from surgery. Low vitamin D levels mean slower healing for muscles and fractures. It’s very easy to test for and have fixed. If your doctor doesn’t do a pre-surgical screening of your vitamin D level, ask for it!
