In my practice I often see people with low vitamin D levels.  Despite daily supplementation, sometimes levels remain lower than optimal.

Vitamin D is a fat soluble nutrient that does not absorb well on an empty stomach or with a small meal.  In a recent study from the Cleveland Clinic, 

people taking their vitamin D supplement with their largest meal of the day had a remarkable  56.7 % increase in their serum D levels as compared

to people who took it with a light meal or on a empty stomach.  If low vitamin D levels persists it is important to rule out gluten sensitivity or other causes of

gastrointestinal inflammation.
