Monthly or Weekly Supplementation with Cholecalciferol 20,000 IU in People Living with HIV: Results from a Nested Cohort Study.
Conclusion: A higher rate of 25(OH)D level normalization can be achieved via weekly supplementation. For several PLWH, even a weekly dose of cholecalciferol 20,000 IU might not be adequate to maintain 25(OH)D levels>30 ng/mL without an initial "loading" dose. The response to supplementation is poorly predictable at an individual level. PMID: 30245713 [PubMed]
VITAMIN D is essential for the immune system, with recent studies highlighting the role it plays in defending against primary infections with viruses. Levels of the vitamin are exceptionally low in UK adults, however. One sign in the hands and feet could signal you're deficient.
Honglin Dong, Viktorija Asmolovaite, Nareen Marseal, Maryam Mearbon Nutrition &Food Science, Vol. ahead-of-print, No. ahead-of-print, pp.- Vitamin D deficiency is prevalent worldwide. This paper aims to investigate the vitamin D status and dietary intake in young university students. Forty-one healthy students aged 18–29 years from Coventry University UK were recruited during January-February 2019, including white Caucasians (n = 18), African-Caribbeans (n = 14) and Asians (n = 9). Plasma 25(OH)D concentrations were measured and dietary vitamin D intake was determined. Chi-square and ...
A variety of vitamin and mineral deficiencies have been linked to this problem.
In conclusion, our data verified that 25-OH D regulated multiple singling pathways to restrain prostate cell EMT, proliferation, inflammation, and oxidative stress. Our study provides in vitro mechanical evidence to support clinical use of vitamin D as a treatment for BPH.PMID:34671434 | PMC:PMC8523287 | DOI:10.1155/2021/4029470
Around half the world’s population is deficient in vitamin D.
ConclusionSerum 25(OH)D has a seasonal variation, being lower in winter than in summer, independent of CKD-MBD treatment including treatment with VDRAs in Japanese hemodialysis patients. The impact of the seasonal variation on risk of vitamin D deficiency and its effect on prognosis remain to be investigated.
(Natural News) Around 42 percent of Americans are vitamin D deficient, and they don’t even know it. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends that adults get 600 to 800 IU per day, but it is recommended that vegetarians and vegans consume more than the suggested amounts. The recommended amount of vitamin D depends on age and other...
ConclusionsThis review confirms findings from individual studies that with regard to age, the ethnic minority patients hospitalized with COVID-19 infection are relatively younger than the White patients. There is also a disparity with regard to gender within the different minority groups.Key messagesThere is a disparity with regard to age and gender between the different ethnic groups affected with COVID-19 infection in Europe and North America.Potential factors for disparities are genetics, vitamin D deficiency, BCG vaccine, comorbidities, occupation, social gradient, housing, PPE access and understanding/compliance to protection measures.
