Vitamin D Metabolism
What May Vitamin D Improve?
  • -Improved bone health
  • -Increased absorption of calcium
  • -Reduced risk of falls and bone fractures
  • -Reduced coronary artery disease
  • -Improved muscular function
  • -Lowering of high blood pressure
  • -Improved blood sugar tolerance
  • -Improved nerve function
  • -Improved kidney function
  • -Reduced risk of 17 cancers
  • -Reduced influenza, cold infections, tuberculosis

Vitamin D Deficiency
Low Vitamin D Risks
  • Increased blood pressure - 2.4 times
  • High blood sugar - 2.5 times
  • Metabolic syndrome 4.0 times

Vitamin D and Bones
  • Vitamin D is important for people
    with osteoporosis. Studies show that calcium and
    vitamin D together can increase bone density in
    postmenopausal women. Vitamin D also helps with
    other disorders associated with weak bones, like

Vitamin D and the Heart
  • Low levels of vitamin D associated with increased
    risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality.
  • One study Low vitamin D risk increase of
  • Coronary Artery Disease - 45
  • Stroke - 78
  • Heart attack - 50
  • Death 77-100
  • 25-57 USA adults may be deficient

Vitamin D and Critical Illness
  • For critically ill patients in the hospital, low
    vitamin D levels have been found to be related to
  • Organ malfunction
  • Length of stay
  • Infection rates

Vitamin D and MS
Several studies have suggested that maintaining
adequate levels of vitamin D may have a
protective effect and lower the risk of
developing multiple sclerosis (MS). Other studies
suggest that for people who already have MS,
vitamin D may lessen the frequency and severity
of their symptoms. More research is needed to
assess these findings.
Is there any proof that vitamin D supplements can
prevent MS or keep symptoms of MS from
  • When a person has MS, his or her immune system
    attacks the coating that protects the nerve
    cells. Research suggests that a connection
    between vitamin D and MS could be tied to the
    positive effects vitamin D has on the immune
  • The link between vitamin D and MS is strengthened
    by the association between sunlight and the risk
    of MS. The farther away from the equator a person
    lives, the higher the risk of MS. Sunlight is the
    body's most efficient source for vitamin D
    suggesting that exposure to sunlight may offer
    protection from MS.

Vitamin D and Cancer Cure
  • Inverse correlation between incidence, mortality
    and or survival rates for many cancers including
    breast, colorectal, ovarian, and prostate
  • Emerging evidence that more than 17 cancers are
    likely to be vitamin D sensitive.
  • 1000 IU/day could reduce cancers 7 for men, 9
    for women in US.
  • 25(OH)D level of 52 ng/ml reduced breast cancer
    by 50
  • 60-80 ng/ml may be optimal for most individuals
  • 25(OH)D level increase from 29 to 39 reduced
    cancer risk by 60 after 4 years.

Vitamin D and the Lungs
  • Asthma Early studies indicate may reduce severe
    exacerbations, exercise induced
  • Lower respiratory tract infections are more
    frequent in those with low 25(OH)D levels.
  • 2000 IU Vitamin D abolished the seasonality of
    influenza and dramatically reduced the
    self-reported incidence.
  • Vitamin D reduces inflammation and viral

Vitamin D and Depression
  • Vitamin D may be primarily associated with
    cognitive domains other than memory , such as
    executive cognitive functions, depression,
    bipolar disorders, and schizophrenia.
  • Low 25(OH)D may be a risk factor for cognitive
    impairment (41-60).
  • Receptors for Vitamin D are present in brain
  • Increased Vitamin D may improve cognitive
    function in
  • patients with Alzheimer's

Pros and Cons Vitamin D From the SUN
  • 5-6 times more deaths from internal cancers
    related to low vitamin D levels than skin cancers
  • Regular moderate outdoor UV exposure increases
    survival of melanoma patients

Current Vitamin D Recommendations
  • Institute of Medicine recommendations
  • 400 IU infants 0 to 12 months
  • 600 IU age 1 70 years
  • 800 IU age above 70
  • 4000 IU upper limit
  • Endocrine Society's Clinical guidelines
  • 400 IU - 1000 IU infants 0 to 12 months
  • 600 IU 1000 IU age 1 18 years
  • 600 IU 2000 IU 19 - 70 years
  • 800 IU 2000 IU above 70
  • 1000 IU to 6 mo, 4000 IU over 8 yrs upper limit

Vitamin D Sources
  • The Sunshine Vitamin
  • Fortified foods
  • Typically supply 150 IU per day, but highly
  • (100 - 400 IU per day).
  • Supplements-Over-the-counter usually vitamin D3
  • Vitamin D3 is more than three times powerful
    than D2.

Vitamin D Sources
Why Euopeans Need Vitamin D
  • 70 percent of Europeans suffer from low vitamin D
    levels---Spanish Foundation for Science and
  • In recent years, there have been reports
    suggesting a high prevalence of low vitamin D
    intakes and vitamin D deficiency or inadequate
    vitamin D status in Europe.
  • European latitude and Climate resulting in
    inadequate sun exposure.

Why Euopeans Need Vitamin D
  • Lifestyle factors such as longer working hours
    indoors and less outdoor playtime for children
    may impact on achieving sufficient sun exposure
  • The importance of time spent outdoors was shown
    in a Swiss population study, where it was a
    significant predictor of low vitamin D levels in
    patients aged over 65 years

Vitamin D and sun exposurein Europe
Sunlight is not strong enough to trigger
synthesis of vitamin D in the skin from October
to March. Therefore, European population rely
on dietary vitamin D and body stores to maintain
a healthy vitamin D status, particularly during
the winter season
How Much Vitamin D is Needed?
  • The only way to know how much is needed is to
    test 25(OH)D.
  • Everyone should be tested!
  • Goal 25(OH)D between 60-80 ng/ml after a
    consistent intake level over 2 months.
  • 100 IU of vitamin D raises 25(OH)D about 1 ng/ml.
