This study included 100 patients with KC and 100 non-atopic healthy controls. Serum vitamin D levels were measured using liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry and compared between the study groups. KC severity was graded as mild (K = 43.1-46.9 D), moderate (K = 47-50 D), and severe (K > 50 D). Vitamin D levels were classified as deficient (≤10 ng/mL), insufficient (11-20 ng/mL), and optimal (>20 ng/mL). RESULTS: The mean serum vitamin D level was significantly lower in the KC group than in the control group (12.18 ± 5.05 ...

AbstractObjectivesTo document the prevalence of hypovitaminosis-D in children with intellectual and movement disorders and to identify the risk factors in vitamin D deficient children.MethodsThis is a cross-sectional study on 90 children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. The prevalence of hypovitaminosis-D and the risk factors such as sun exposure, age-appropriate mobility, diet, skin color and anti-epileptic medications were examined in children with cognitive disorders and movement disorders.ResultsThe mean serum vitamin D level in children with cognitive disability (n  = 46) was found to be 26.7&thinsp...

DiscussionAs detailed above, the “elements” in both a classical and a contemporary sense have effects on our mental health and are potentially modifiable aspects that can be harnessed as therapeutic interventions. The most robust interventional evidence currently available shows tentative support for several use of the elements via horticultural and nature-exposure therapy, green exercise/physical activity, sauna and heat therapy, balneotherapy, and breathing exercises. It should be noted that, in many cases, these interventions were not studied in definitive diagnosed psychiatric disorders and thus it is prema...

This study explores the relationship of Vitamin D to papillary thyroid carcinoma stage while accounting for socioeconomic covariates.Materials and methodsThe medical records of all patients who underwent thyroidectomy at one institution between 2000 and 2015 were reviewed. Subjects with non-papillary thyroid cancer pathology, prior malignancy, and without Vitamin D levels were excluded. The remaining 334 patient records were examined for cancer stage, Vitamin D levels, Vitamin D deficiency listed in history, and demographic and comorbid factors.ResultsVitamin D laboratory values showed no significant relationship to cancer...

Background: Although there is evidence that hypovitaminosis D is present in many otherwise healthy adults, there is little information on supplementation in patients undergoing spine surgery. Thus, the purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of preoperative hypovitaminosis D in spine surgery patients and evaluate the efficacy of postoperative vitamin D supplement regimens. Methods: Per standard of care, serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels were regularly drawn preoperatively and at 6 mo postoperatively; patients with hypovitaminosis D were prescribed a 3-month supplementation regimen based on their le...
