Multiple Sclerosis: Vitamin D Supplements May Benefit Those Who Have the Problem

Researchers believe these findings may indicate that vitamin D has the potential to be a safe and convenient type of treatment for people with multiple sclerosis, but further research is needed to confirm these results in larger groups, and to help understand the mechanism that drives these results.

Vitamin D and Multiple Sclerosis

Lower levels of vitamin D in the blood are linked to an increased risk of developing multiple sclerosis . In addition, people living with the problem and having low levels of vitamin D are more likely to have more dependence and more diseases related to their activities.

How the study was performed

For the study, 40 people with sclerosis multiple sender-recipients received 10,400 or 800 international units (IU) of vitamin D3 supplementation. Patients with severe vitamin D deficiency were not included in this study. The current recommendation for vitamin D3 intake is 600 IU. Blood tests at the beginning of the study and again after three and six months measured the amount of vitamin D present in the blood and the T-cell response of the immune system - which play an important role in cases of multiple sclerosis - to treatment. > Researchers are still studying which dose would give patients more benefit. Adverse reactions to vitamin D supplements were small and there was no difference between groups. The authors of the study hope that the results will be proven to reduce the severity of the disease.
