My Children's Pediatrician
Took my son to his pediatrician and asked for a blood test (routine yearly) asked her to test his D3 as well as B12. She said she would add this on, but didn't even know how to write it on the prescription. She was asking me! It is in the news that 75-80% of the US population is deficient in D3. Why wouldn't a pediatrician test for this, why wouldn't all doctors test for this.(So many of the kids today are not out playing as they used to they are using computers/video games and in waiting for their parents to come home from work after school. ) Vitamin D3 is so important for many of the bodies' processes!
I had the same issue with my regular general physician. He never tests for Vitamin D3, and didn't even know how to write in on the script either! AHHHHH! It makes me mad, we pay doctors so much, they should be more educated and keep up to date on the new advances.....
