Vitamin D deficiency

Think my doc has forgotten where we live

i was called to the surgery in Friday regarding my blood results, apparently i am deficient. in vit A he asked about my diet, which is well balanced and my appetite is ok, and said i probably need to see a dietitian and gave me a supplement for two months, ok says me i,ve no problem with that, then he say your also short of vit D, and gives me another supplement and says (" you need to sit on the sun more" ) my answer was have you seen the weather lately, makes me wonder if he ever gets out himself, two or three days of the sunny thingamy in the sky's not enough. Sit in the sun ! wonder if they,d let use the uv tank at the dermatology unit in Chorley,Mmmmm shall ask, free sun tan. ;)
