I live in a sunny city and have enough expose to the sun, but I recently learned that I have Vit D insufficiency. What could be the reason for it?

    The amount of vitamin D you get from exposing your bare skin to the sun depends on:
    ◾The time of day – your skin produces more vitamin D if you expose it during the middle of the day.
    ◾Where you live – the closer to the equator you live, the easier it is for you to produce vitamin D from sunlight all year round.
    ◾The color of your skin – pale skins make vitamin D more quickly than darker skins.
    ◾The amount of skin you expose – the more skin your expose the more vitamin D your body will produce.
