ConclusionsIn some patients, vitamin D may have a role in the pathophysiology and treatment of chronic urticaria; however, the cost-effectiveness of routine laboratory screening in chronic urticaria is unknown.
(Martin-Luther-Universit ä t Halle-Wittenberg) Many people suffer from a vitamin D deficiency. This can result in brittle bones and an increased risk of respiratory diseases. Chicken eggs are a natural source of vitamin D and one way to, at least partially, compensate for this deficiency. A team of nutritionists and agricultural scientists at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) has found a new way to further increase the vitamin D content of eggs: by exposing chickens to UV light.
AbstractObjectivesThe aim of this cross-sectional study was to evaluate which cognitive domains are mostly affected in persons with vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency, defined as 25(OH)D
ConclusionsWith or without malnutrition, iron deficiency anemia, vitamin B12 deficiency and vitamin D deficiency were common in the home care elderly patients.
ConclusionResults demonstrated that vitamin D supplementation in addition to resistance training had positive effects on some inflammatory markers in T2D and vitamin D deficient men. Vitamin D supplementation was especially effective when it was complemented with exercise training.
CONCLUSIONS Vitamin D may be an overlooked factor in the pathophysiology of diabetic foot ulcer development and subsequent delay in wound healing outcomes. The authors recommend adding 25(OH)D deficiency to the list of multifactorial aggravating factors providers should consider correcting in this subgroup of patients.
This study aimed at investigating the vitamin D status of pediatric patients with upper limb fractures and finding out the influences of age, gender, season and fracture sites. 695 patients were admitted for upper limb fractures between November 1st 2014 and October 31st 2015. 224 healthy children were included during the same period. Serum 25(OH)D was measured at the time of visit and their demographic data were recorded. Generally fracture patients had significant lower vitamin D level than the healthy children. The average serum 25(OH)D of the patients was 24.5ng/ml, compared to 28.1ng/ml in healthy children. Vitamin D ...
Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy carries potential threat to fetal well being. Natural conversion of vitamin D in the skin can be facilitated by direct ultra violet B (UVB) radiation, but the effect is re...
Authors: Koop AH, Mousa OY, Pham LE, Corral-Hurtado JE, Pungpapong S, Keaveny AP Abstract Malnutrition is prevalent in cirrhosis. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies, including vitamin D, vitamin A, and zinc, are common and have been shown to correlate with survival. Our aim was to review the mechanisms of vitamin D, vitamin A, and zinc deficiencies in cirrhosis and the clinical assessment of affected patients, their outcomes based on the current literature, and management. This is a narrative review including the relevant literature for cirrhosis and vitamin D, vitamin A, and zinc deficiencies. Vitamin D deficiency h...
Vitamin D deficiency is a global health concern1 as it has pleiotropic effects on the heart2, bone metabolism3 and immune system4 among others. Risk factors include low sun exposure, age, poor oral intake of vitamin D-enriched aliments and malabsorption5,6. In Europe it affects habitants from different latitudes, including those living in Mediterranean countries7 –10. It is well known that haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients are at high risk for vitamin D deficiency and bone abnormalities due to prolong hospitalisations (with its subsequent lack of sunshine) and nutritional compromise status11–13.
