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 people worldwide. (2) Low vitamin D status is connected to a wide assortment of diseases. Raising vitamin D levels is beneficial and easy…if vitamin D supplementation is followed. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation encourages our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients to know and improve as necessary their vitamin D levels. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is certain that positive health benefits will ensure from this effort.

DISEASES RELATED TO LOW VITAMIN D LEVELS

A rampant vitamin D deficiency is associated with many diseases. The incidence of cancers like lung, pancreatic, colorectal, kidney, breast 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 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 effectiveness of the treatment. (4) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation notes that this is interesting as these two conditions are also known to be influenced by vitamin D status too. Baton Rouge chiropractic care at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation benefits Baton Rouge chiropractic patients with these conditions.

BENEFITS OF IMPROVING 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) Giving a daily level dose of vitamin D (1000 units/kg I.P.) to post-surgical back patients for 3 weeks straight lessens symptoms of neuropathic pain. (5) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees how these benefits are worth the effort our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients would accept to elevate 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 more than 20 ng/L. Both witnessed their vitamin D levels raise. The elevation was seen in the first month of the study for those taking calcium plus vitamin D. A thought-provoking side observation in this study: It’s hard to get people to do what is recommended! Only 67 of the 106 study women took the recommended supplements for the 3 months of the study!
