Vitamin D deficiency symptoms: Worrying sign in a person’s mood indicating a deficiency
VITAMIN D is essential for several reasons, including maintaining healthy bones and teeth. It may also protect against a range of diseases and conditions. Lacking in the vitamin could create a worrying sign that is often overlooked. What is it?
Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to the risk of frailty. However, there are limited methods for evaluations of the potential association of vitamin D with frailty in a longevous (80+) population. The aim o...
ConclusionThis study extends the mutational spectrum of thePHEX gene, which will contribute to accurate diagnosis. This study also suggests a supplementary qPCR or MLPA assay may be performed along with classical sequencing to confirm the gross insertion/deletion.
Myocardial calcifications are often discovered incidentally and result from dystrophic or metastatic deposition of calcium1. Dystrophic calcification represents the sequalae of local tissue damage with necrosis, most commonly from myocardial ischemia. Unlike the prior, metastatic calcification is the result of abnormal calcium homeostasis; including renal failure, hyperparathyroidism, and vitamin D deficiency. Myocardial calcifications are not entirely a benign finding, since they can lead to heart failure, arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death2.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Several studies have indicated that older adults with cognitive impairment have a poorer lifestyle than their healthy peers including lower 25-hydroxy-vitamin D levels (25OHD). AIM: To investigate the associations between lifestyle and 25OHD depending on cognitive status among old adults. METHODS: Community-dwelling old adults (65-96 years) participated in this cross-sectional study based on the Age-Gene/Environment-Susceptibility-Reykjavik-Study. The analytical sample included 5162 subjects who were stratified by cognitive status, i.e., dementia (n = 307), mild co...
