a world-wide epidemic: low vitamin D levels. 14%
of the world population has poor
vitamin D levels. (1) One published report states that it
affects 1 billion of us worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked
to a varied assortment of diseases. Bettering
vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken.
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center encourages our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to know
and work to raise as necessary their vitamin D levels.
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center is sure that positive health benefits
will follow from this effort.
DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS
A widespread vitamin D deficiency is associated
with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like breast, colorectal, kidney, lung, and pancreatic
is related to low vitamin D levels. Diabetes, rickets, rheumatic
arthritis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer diseases, benign paroxysmal positional
vertigo, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, and fractures in adults are too.
(1, 2, 3) Vitamin D plays a key role in calcium
homeostasis, skeletal metabolism, and the function of immune, cardiovascular
and reproductive systems. (2) Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is also research-connected
to vitamin D status and bone mineral density. (3) Vitamin D3 supplementation is effective in its care. Testing
for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test
as to the effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center
notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status too. Fort Wayne
chiropractic care at Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center benefits Fort Wayne chiropractic
patients with these conditions.
BENEFITS OF RAISING VITAMIN D LEVELS
Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D
is documented to improve the antidepressive effect. Researchers propose
that vitamin D may be beneficial for other such conditions beyond just
depression like schizophrenia, cognitive disturbances, attention deficit
disorder, and autism. (1) Giving a daily same
dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 lessens
symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center sees how
these benefits are worth the work our Fort Wayne
chiropractic patients would accept to raise
poor vitamin D levels.
HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS
A study of healthy young women showed that consuming
calcium plus vitamin D (1500 IU) by those with less than 20ng/L or 800 IU of
vitamin D by those with levels of greater than 20
ng/L. Both saw their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation was witnessed
in the first month
of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An
interesting side finding in this study: It is difficult
to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106
study participants took the recommended
supplements for the three months of the
