Understanding Vitamin importance

Since Mayo Clinic provided me with lots of information about the D deficiency I decided to call them Tuesday morning and not knowing absolutely which field of specialty would deal with D deficiency I did my best to explain why I was calling. It’s nice and easy to ask for urology, or oncology, or any other well known field of expertise but what is a vitamin doctor called? Seriously I found 2 suggestions: endocrinologist or hematology. Let’s listen to the tape of the person who answered the phone early on Tuesday morning. I wonder if Mayo would be proud of her phone presence phone manners, bedside manner, my frustration on a daily basis with rude inept, crude, less than compassionate people who got a good paying job should be fired on the spot and recorded for all potential phone jockies just to give them an idea of what will not be tolerated.
I can not put a number on my pain level today. Living alone does have its down side.
I am wondering if there is a name for this kind of crying that happens to me everyday. The warrior who served his country does not want to call in “ crying “ I’m not making the crying sounds that if someone could hear me they would say : “ that man is crying “ I don’t feel sad for myself it’s plain and simple PAIN I know how to buck up to pain. It’s not that it’s below me to holler out and cry in that traditional wailing. But this isn’t that. This is just pain that brings tears to my eyes. I’m not embarrassed by them I just don’t know if they have a special name.
Sorry, I’m rambling again

@stuckonu I commend you for seeking information about Vitamin D deficiency from Mayo Clinic. Did you call the main appointment request line for answers? If yes, then I can imagine that the phone call left you feeling like you didn't get any answers. If you are a Mayo patient, you can post the question on the patient portal. If not, there is a ton of information posted my Mayo experts, endocrinologists and educators online. Here are a few examples:
