Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide epidemic.. 14 in every 100 people around the world 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 wide assortment of diseases. Raising vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Hutter Chiropractic Office encourages our Groton chiropractic patients to check and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Hutter Chiropractic Office is sure that positive health benefits will follow from this effort.

DISEASES LINKED 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 associated with 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 participates importantly 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) It responds well to vitamin D3 supplementation. Checking the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the success of the treatment. (4) Hutter Chiropractic Office notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also identified as being affected by vitamin D status as well. Groton chiropractic care at Hutter Chiropractic Office benefits Groton 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) Providing a daily level dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 alleviates symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Hutter Chiropractic Office sees how these benefits are worth the work our Groton chiropractic patients would accept to raise low vitamin D levels.

HOW TO RAISE VITAMIN D LEVELS

A study of healthy young women revealed 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 seen as early as the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side observation in this study: It’s difficult to get people to do what is suggested! Only 67 of the 106 study participants followed the directions for the 3 months of the study! (6)
