Vitamin D may help women with chronic pain 11-15-08
A study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases suggests that low
vitamin D levels may contribute to chronic pain among women.
The study was based on blood analyses and pain scores of about 7,000 men and
women from across England, Scotland and Wales age 50 or older.
Those who smoked, who were non-drinkers or under or overweight were more likely
to report chronic pain.
Among men, the association between vitamin D and chronic pain was not
significant but women with vitamin D levels between 1200 IU and 1600 IU had the
lowest rates of pain whereas women with less than 400 IU had the highest rates,
about 14 percent.
But oddly enough, those with vitamin D above 1600 IU seemed to have higher rates
of pain, about 10 percent or higher.
The researchers did not know why there was such an association. But they
suggested that extreme vitamin D deficiency resulted in osteomalacia which is
associated with bone pain.
The conversions to get the Vitamin D into IU. (International Units) was hell!
I had to convert the original mmol/l to mg/dl to ng/dl to IU! It is rediculus
that researchers don't do this automatically for anyone else in the known world.
If supplemental vitamin D is measured in IU than the amounts in the study should
