    Unsolicited medical advice forthcoming: Get your blood levels of Vitamin D checked. More & more docs are starting to do this, but Vit D deficiencies are emerging as a serious health issue among palefaces such as you and I who have to avoid sun. [Irish ancestry, raised in Honolulu; see my derm 4x/year.] When I finally got ck'd a few months ago, my blood levels were barely distinguishable from a corpse who'd been languishing in the morgue for a few months.

    The usual RDA for Vit D in basic vitamins are laughably low, so don't count on a regular daily vitamin to do the trick. If your doc finds you are deficient, she will prescribe--are you sitting down?--a 50,000 IU dose to take weekly for awhile.

    Or you could rub Cheetos all over yourself... ;-)
