You could be at a higher risk of a vitamin D deficiency if you:
Rarely go outdoors, live in the northern latitudes, or have a darker skin tone
Have limited sun exposure due to your occupation, clothing choices, or engage in indoor athletics rather than outdoor sports
Regularly wear sunscreen with an SPF greater than 8
Are an older adult (the risk of a deficiency increases with age beginning at age 50)

The optimal amount of vitamin D for an individual depends on many factors and varies from person to person. Therefore, the requirement for vitamin D supplementation should be individualized.
