    This talk highlights why vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency has been related to increased risk for rickets in children and osteoporosis and the painful bone disease osteomalacia in adults. Besides the skeletal health benefits of vitamin D, it is now recognised that vitamin D deficiency has been associated with a wide variety of clinical disorders including preeclampsia, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, neurocognitive dysfunction and infectious diseases. To treat and prevent vitamin D deficiency the Endocrine Society recommends children ages 0-1 and 1-18 require 400-600 IUs and 600-1000 IUs vitamin D daily respectively and adults require 1500-2000 IUs daily. Those who are obese (BMI >30) need 2-5 times more vitamin D. Vitamin D toxicity is not observed until serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels >150 ng/ml. Sensible sun exposure, dietary intake of vitamin D and vitamin D supplements is a three-part strategy to maintain a satisfactory vitamin D status to maximise health. Watch Now »

  • Indoor Workers Suffer Vitamin D Deficiency

    Publish Date: 2011-05-27

    Author: BioCeuticals

    Almost half of all Australians working indoors will come out of the winter months lacking in vitamin D, a new study has found. A survey of Sydney office workers, presented at the Dietitians Association of Australia conference in Adelaide on Thursday, found 42 per cent were deficient in the vitamin at the end of winter. Meanwhile, one in three had low levels over summer. "We suspected lifestyle makes a difference to vitamin D, especially working indoors, but we hadn't expected that we'd have this much of a problem," researcher Professor Rebecca Mason told AAP.

  • How Vitamin D Inhibits Inflammation

    Publish Date: 2012-03-01

    Author: BioCeuticals

    Researchers at National Jewish Health have discovered specific molecular and signaling events by which vitamin D inhibits inflammation. In their experiments, they showed that low levels of Vitamin D, comparable to levels found in millions of people, failed to inhibit the inflammatory cascade, while levels considered adequate did inhibit inflammatory signaling. They reported their results in the March 1, 2011, issue of The Journal of Immunology.*

  • Vitamin D: let the sun shine

    Publish Date: 2011-12-21

    Author: Melinda Ham

    Is vitamin D deficiency really a problem in Australia, and what should be done about it? The message to protect against sun exposure in order to avoid skin cancer finally seems to be getting through to Australians, but it could be creating a new problem – vitamin D deficiency. A significant proportion of the Australian population – nearly one in four people – could have moderate vitamin D deficiency, according to new data from Sydney’s Westmead Hospital. But how can doctors strike a reasonable balance between advising people to protect themselves from the sun and making sure they have adequate vitamin D levels?
