Dogs, Dung, and D-ficiency

“What fills your heart with joy?”

“My two Italian greyhounds!” 

Their 60-something owner, her skin Minnesota white and muscles undefined, complained that scooping poop was nearly impossible.

“Hurts the back?”

“That and weak, so weak,” she replied and used both arms to struggle from her chair.

This is more than out of shape, I thought, and ordered tests.

Extremity weakness. Fatigue.

MS? ALS? other MND?

Vitamin D, deficiency?

Am I close?! :)

The way you titled this, I'd say Vitamin D is what she needs.

Her D levels were too low to D-tect!
