I'm just curious about whether there is any evidence to show that a low fat diet leads to vitamin D deficiency. Both my parents have recently been told to take supplements and I'm suspicious that their low fat diets is part of the cause.

It is a perfectly paleo approach to have very low consumption of both fat and animal products. Infact i'd argue that most of the studied paleo populations follow such a diet.
