Dr. Dowd is a rheumatologist, board-certified in both pediatric and adult rheumatology who treats patients at the Arthritis Institute of Michigan, of which, Dr. Dowd is the founding physician. Dr. Dowd treats patients who suffer from the many types of arthritis, as well as those who struggle with symptoms of deficiency. Through his groundbreaking research, Pleasant Ridge rheumatologist Dr. James Dowd has discovered that patients with symptoms of rheumatic disease are also commonly deficient in vitamin D, and most of us need far more vitamin D to be healthy than previously thought. If you or someone you love has been suffering with fatigue, sleep disruption, bowl issues, bladder problems, uncontrolled weight gain or problems with concentration and memory, you could be lacking this essential nutrient. In the summer months, we have easier access to fresh fruits and vegetables and spend more time outside, raising our vitamin D absorption and elevating our mood. In the winter, cold weather causes us to spend more time indoors, and our vitamin D levels fall. This vitamin deficiency can make you feel tired, depressed, sore and achy and can steal the enjoyment from everyday living. Through personalized therapies, exercise instruction, nutrition counseling and supplements, Dr. James Dowd has helped patients in Pleasant Ridge, Michigan and surrounding communities regain their enthusiasm, reinvigorating them, and easing or eliminating their symptoms.
