Let's talk about how to spot the differences between a calcium deficiency and a vitamin D deficiency. Some of the symptoms of a calcium deficiency and a vitamin D deficiency are very similar. This could be because a calcium deficiency could be caused by not having enough vitamin D.

Symptoms of a calcium deficiency:

• Numbness or tingling in the lips, mouth, fingers, or toes

• Muscle spasms or aches

• Confusion

• Are you consuming dairy? We get a lot of calcium from dairy

• Dark leafy green greens contain calcium

• Trout is high in calcium

• Clams are high in calcium

• Calcium channel blockers can potentially cause a calcium deficiency

• Calcium is influenced by magnesium (too much or too little magnesium could lead to a calcium deficiency)

• If you're too alkaline, you're not going to be able to absorb calcium

• If you're low in vitamin K2, calcium can't be transported out of the joints or the blood
