Both Easy and Beneficial to Raise Vitamin D Levels

It’s a world-wide epidemic: vitamin D deficiency. 14 in every 100 people around the world has poor vitamin D levels. (1) One published report states that it affects 1 billion people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is linked to a varied range of diseases. Bettering vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is taken. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages our Auburn chiropractic patients to check and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is sure that positive health benefits will result from this effort.

DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A rampant vitamin D deficiency is correlated 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 as well. (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. Testing for the occurrence of osteopenia/osteoporosis in these patients is the test as to the success of the treatment. (4) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be affected by vitamin D status too. Auburn chiropractic care at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. benefits Auburn chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF RAISING VITAMIN D LEVELS

Supplementing those who take antidepressants with vitamin D is shown 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 same dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients on day one through day 21 eases symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees how these benefits are worth the work our Auburn chiropractic patients would accept to raise low 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 increase. The rise was witnessed in the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. An interesting side observation in this study: It’s hard to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study participants followed the directions for the three months of the study! (6)
