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 wide 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
