I have PD & Osteoporosis. I also have very low levels of vitamin D and supplements aren't helping much. My Dr. wants me to get at least 15 minutes of direct sunlight per day to help get my vitamin D up. I told him that people with Parkinson's have an elevated chance of getting skin cancer, so I'm hesitant - especially being very fair skinned and living in the tropics.
His response to this was to tell me that people with PD are also prone to falling and my spine has already lost bone density. A simple fall could result in a broken back. He said it's really up to me to decide which option 'feels' better to me.
I'm totally confused about how to make this decision. Any advice?
