Vitamin D Replacement
Multiple studies have highlighted that low vitamin D levels are associated with arthritis of the hip and knee. Two randomised control trials have been performed, with one showing an improvement in pain in the group supplemented with Vitamin D.
Vitamin D is also important for healthy bones and to reduce your risk of osteoporosis. So, although the benefit to your hip pain may only be small, it is recommended that your Vitamin D levels are tested and supplemented if needed.
