Abstract

This study aimed to identify the relationship between the level of deficiency of vitamin (D) and the symptoms of mood disorder among a sample of clients of private medical laboratories in Makkah AlMokarramah City. It also aimed to identify the differences between five private medical laboratories in the average degree of mood disorder. In addition, this study aimed to predict the average degree of vitamin (D) and the existence of mood disorder. The study used descriptive (correlation) methodology to collect data using the Mood Disorder Scale on a sample of 200 clients (both sexes) of private medical laboratories in Makkah AlMokarramah City, which all have vitamin (D) deficiency. Results showed a statistically significant inverse correlation between the level of vitamin (D) and the symptoms of mood disorder at the level of significance (p ≤ .05). There are significant differences (p ≤ .05) in Mood Disorder between the five laboratories in favor of Al-Issawi Laboratory. The symptoms of Mood Disorder can be used to predict vitamin (D) deficiency. There are multiple correlations between vitamin (D) deficiency and Mood Disorder. The researchers recommended several recommendations, including: inserting the vitamin (D) within the range of procedures used to assess the level of mental disorders, and recommended the need to exposure to the sunlight and eat natural food rich in vitamin (D).
