METHODS: Serum vitamin D and CRP levels of 51,003 Korean adult participants were collected retrospectively. Anxiety symptoms were assessed using the Korean version of Beck Anxiety Inventory. Logistic regression was used to estimate the odds ratio (ORs) of anxiety symptoms by serum vitamin D and CRP levels. The regression was adjusted for covariates, and each model was adjusted mutually fo...

Diagnosis of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) in the adolescent population remains imprecise. High anti-M üllerian hormone (AMH) levels and 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] deficiency have been associated with PCOS in adult women, and implicated in its pathogenesis. Herein we determined if the level of both AMH and 25(OH)D are altered in adolescent females with clinical features of PCOS.

Abstract Previous studies have shown conflicting findings regarding the relationship between maternal vitamin D deficiency (VDD) and foetal growth restriction (FGR). We hypothesized that parathyroid hormone (PTH) may be an underlying factor relevant to this potential association. In a prospective birth cohort study, descriptive statistics were evaluated for the demographic characteristics of 3407 pregnancies in the second trimester from three antenatal clinics in Hefei, China. The association of the combined status of VD and PTH with birth weight and the risk of small for gestational age (SGA) was assessed by a mu...
