Authors: Sibtain S, Sinha P, Manoharan M, Azeez A Abstract Vitamin D deficiency (Vit D deficiency) is a global health concern and a common occurrence especially among pregnant women. It has been suggested that Vit D deficiency has implications on both the mother and the foetus. Vitamin D deficiency is the most under-diagnosed nutritional deficiency in the world, affecting the majority of individuals, irrespective of their geography, gender, age or race. Vitamin D deficiency is also linked with several diseases (autoimmune diseases, cancer, cardiovascular, dementia and musculoskeletal diseases). Therefore, appropria...

ConclusionsOur results demonstrate that vitamin D deficiency induces insulin resistance. Its supplementation has significant beneficial effects on pathophysiological mechanisms in T2D but only in lean and not in the obese phenotype. The increased subacute inflammation and insulin resistance in obesity could not be significantly alleviated by vitamin D supplementation. This needs to be taken consideration in the design of new clinical trials.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

The disease, however, existed already in the Roman times. The etiology of this disease remained enigmatic until the 1920s when two different mechanisms, lack of exposure to sunlight and lack of a dietary factor were finally solved by the discovery of vitamin D and its dual origin. Soon thereafter, the implementation of vitamin ...

To conduct a meta-analysis of the effects of the nutritional vitamin D therapy on arterial stiffness in adults with vitamin D deficiency, the Scopus, PUBMED, EMBASE, and Cochrane databases were searched for systematic reviews conducted up to October 5, 2018. Randomized clinical trial...

Publication date: Available online 3 December 2019Source: The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular BiologyAuthor(s): Robert ScraggAbstractAccumulating evidence from observational studies indicates that vitamin D status is inversely associated with a many non-skeletal diseases. This has initiated the conduct of several large clinical trials to determine if high dose vitamin D supplementation (≥ 2000 IU/day or monthly equivalent) prevents non-skeletal disease including cardiovascular disease, cancer and mortality. One of these trials is the Vitamin D Assessment (ViDA) Study which recruited 5,110 participants, age...

Vitamin D deficiency (25(OH)D) is a common finding in patients with congestive heart failure (HF) [1]. Vitamin D might play a role in the pathogenesis of HF [1 –4], with mechanisms for this possibly including effects on the renin–angiotensin system, insulin secretion and sensitivity, protection against angiogenesis and reduction of the pro-inflammatory response in HF [5–7]. However, a recent vitamin D supplementation trial did not find a beneficial e ffect on parameters of renin-angiotensin system in patient with advance HF [8].
