According to the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS),  foot woes could be the result of inadequate levels of vitamin D, which can increase your risk of incurring a stress fracture in the bones of your feet. According to Arizona-based foot and ankle surgeon and ACFAS Fellow Member, Jason Kayce, DPM, FACFAS, "Calcium is often touted as the quintessential nutrient for building bone density. While true, vitamin D manages the calcium you intake, allowing the body to absorb both calcium and phosphate, which builds your bones."

In addition to an increased risk of incurring a foot fracture, vitamin D deficiency can also lead to osteoporosis, a higher risk of falls, and bone and muscle pain. "In patients with low levels of vitamin D, often the weight-bearing bones in the foot and ankle are so easily affected because they are not strong enough to withstand the pressure of carrying a person's body," said Dr. Kayce.
