Dr. med. Anna Dorothea Hoeck (also spelled Anna Dorothea Höck or Anna Dorothea Hock), is a physician in Cologne, Germany. She believes that prolonged vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency coupled with calcium depletion may trigger chronic fatigue syndrome [1] and has found that many mild or moderately fatigued patients improve with supplements of vitamin D3 and other micronutrients.[2] However, she concedes, patients who have had to reduce their activity level greater than 50% due to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome have poor treatment outcomes with vitamin D and micronutrient supplemention.[3]
