Aside from calcium, vitamin D is also a crucial part of the body acquiring the minerals it needs for strong bones. In fact, without vitamin D, the ability of the body to absorb calcium in the gut would be severely compromised, leading to even lower bone mineral density and a worsening of Paget’s disease symptoms. If you are getting older, already at risk for osteoporosis, or diagnosed with Paget’s disease, step outside and get some sunshine (the main source of vitamin D in our body) or eat vitamin D-rich foods, such as eggs, mushrooms and liver.
