AbstractMethicillin-resistantStaphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is resistant to all beta-lactam antibiotics and can cause severe infections that are difficult to treat. Eradication strategies with conventional antibiotics are not always effective and alternative approaches are warranted. Here, we tested the hypothesis that daily supplementation with vitamin D for 12  months would reduce MRSA carriage rates among a group of persistent carriers. This was a double-blind, placebo-controlled randomized trial withn = 65 persistent MRSA carriers with 25-hydroxy vitamin D3 (25OHD)

CONCLUSION: This study highlights the need for distribution of the recommendations for vitamin D supplementation in KSA, as widely as possible.  This study suggests that healthcare practitioners understand the importance of correction of vitamin D deficiency.  Deficiencies in knowledge with regard to sun exposure were identified.  Dissemination of this information is, therefore, likely to impact significantly on the practice of a receptive clinical population.

Conclusions A diminution in renal gluconeogenesis that is accompanied by a decrease in blood vitamin D promotes a novel repartition of EGP among glucose producing organs during fasting, featured by increased intestinal gluconeogenesis that leads to sparing glycogen stores in the liver. Our data suggest a possible involvement of a crosstalk between the intestine and liver (via a neural gut-brain-liver axis) and the kidneys and intestine (via the vitamin D system), which might take place in the situations of deficient renal glucose production, such as chronic kidney disease.
