President Obama has a “mild Vitamin D deficiency”.
According to the President’s Periodic Physical Exam in May 2014, President Obama’s level of Vitamin D was 22.9 (ng/ml).
A Vitamin D level of below 30 ng/ml is considered as “insufficient” by most standards except by the American Food and Nutrition Board. They believe that 20 ng/ml is enough.
Apparently the president’s physician, Ronny L. Jackson, do not believe in the recommendations by the Food and Nutrition Board.
