VITAMIN D helps support the body ’s vital functions. It is well understood that a lack of the nutrient can cause bone problems, but it can also impact other parts of the body, including the immune system.

Conclusion: Our findings suggest that vitamin D deficiency is not associated with higher mortality among critically ill children but increases susceptibility to sepsis and the need for ventilator support in critical care settings. PMID: 31603014 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Zhang J, Sun RR, Yan ZX, Yi WX, Yue B Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate the correlation of serum vitamin A, D, and E levels with a recurrent respiratory infection (RRI) in children. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The medical records of 422 children with RRI (a study group) in Cangzhou Central Hospital from January 2015 to December 2018 were retrospectively analyzed (the study group was divided into an active group and a stable group). Further 100 healthy children who underwent physical examination at the same time were enrolled as a control group. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was used to deter...

Purpose of review Vitamin D deficiency may impact disease progression of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The aim of this work was to review recent studies examining either vitamin D status or the effects of supplementation in patients with NAFLD, along with investigating the roles of genetic polymorphisms and the gut microbiome. Recent findings Six heterogeneous observational studies of vitamin D status, and four randomized controlled intervention trials of vitamin D supplementation in NAFLD were conflicting. All studies were hampered by the challenges of diagnosing NAFLD, were underpowered, and lacked data ...

Purpose of review To update the role of specific nutrients during infant development. Recent findings Several bioactive nutrients such as long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFAs), iron, vitamins, proteins, or carbohydrates have been identified to exert an important role during the first 1000 days of life on infant growth, neurodevelopment, and gut microbiota establishment and maturation. LC-PUFAs are structural constituents of the central nervous system (CNS), being essential in retinal development or hippocampal plasticity. Recently, components of the milk fat globule membrane (MFG) are being added to infant...

This article summarizes recent literature concerning vitamin deficiency and required supplementation post-bariatric surgery, focusing on vitamin D (and associated clinical adverse effect on bone loss) and on the potential implication of the gut microbiota. Recent findings Bariatric surgery induces weight loss and metabolic improvements yet with major inter-individual variability. If it is efficient in most patients, some display poor response (i.e. patients with the lowest weight loss at 1 year or weight regain afterwards, or patients without metabolic disease remission). Despite systematic vitamin supplementation, some...

This study was undertaken for the first time to evaluate the efficacy of daily consumption of vitamin D fortified sunflower oil with a meal.MethodsThis single-blind trial was conducted in two separate institutions: one as intervention (D-fortified sunflower oil) group (DO,n1 = 39) and the other as control (unfortified sunflower oil) group (SO,n2 = 33). Participants consumed their lunches cooked either with D-fortified or unfortified cooking sunflower oil (500 IU/30 g) for 12 weeks. Dietary, anthropometric and biochemical assessments were done for all participants before and after ...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewMalnutrition, sarcopenia, and cachexia are areas of increasing interest in the management of patients with heart failure (HF). This review aims to examine the serological markers useful in guiding the physician in identification of these patients.Recent FindingsTraditional nutritional biomarkers including albumin/prealbumin, iron, and vitamin D deficiencies predict poor prognosis in malnutrition and HF. Novel biomarkers including ghrelin, myostatin, C-terminal agrin fragment, and adiponectin have been identified as possible substrates and/or therapeutic targets in cardiac patients with sarcopenia a...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Vitamin D deficiency during critical illness has been associated with worsened outcomes. Because most critically ill patients with severe traumatic injuries are vitamin D deficient, we investigated the efficacy and safety of cholecalciferol therapy for these patients. METHODS: Fifty-three patients (>17 years of age) admitted to the trauma intensive care unit who had a serum 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25-OH vit D) concentration 1.32 mmol/L) or hypervitaminosis D (25-OH vit D>79.9 nmol/L). Patients were monitored for 2 weeks during cholecalciferol therapy. RESULTS: Twen...

VITAMIN D deficiency symptoms may arise if a person isn ’t getting enough of what has been dubbed the ‘sunshine vitamin’, and left untreated, serious complications can occur. One sign of the condition which is important to recognise may appear in a person’s head.
