How To Know The Deficiency Of Vitamin D In Our Body | Gold Star Health Fights disease Reduces depression Boosts weight lossVitamin D deficiency Food sources How much you need Sunshine vitamin Vitamin D is called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced in your skin in response to sunlight. It’s a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D-1, D-2, and D-3. Your body produces vitamin D naturally when it’s directly exposed to sunlight. You can also get it through certain foods and supplements to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood. Vitamin D has several important functions. Perhaps the most vital are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and facilitating normal immune system function. Getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases. If your body doesn’t get enough vitamin D, you’re at risk of developing bone abnormalities such as soft bones (osteomalacia) or fragile bones (osteoporosis). Here are three more surprising benefits of vitamin D. 1. Vitamin D fights disease In addition to its primary benefits, research suggests that vitamin D may also play a role in: reducing your risk of multiple sclerosis, according to a 2006 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Associationdecreasing your chance of developing heart disease, according to findings published in Circulationhelping to reduce your likelihood of developing the flu, according to 2010 research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2. Vitamin D reduces depression Research has shown that vitamin D might play an important role in regulating mood and warding off depression. In one study, scientists found that people with depression who received vitamin D supplements noticed an improvement in their symptoms. In another study of people with fibromyalgia, researchers found vitamin D deficiency was more common in those who were also experiencing anxiety and depression. 3. Vitamin D boosts weight loss Consider adding vitamin D supplements to your diet if you’re trying to lose weight or prevent heart disease. You can find a great selection of vitamin D supplements In one study, people taking a daily calcium and vitamin D supplement were able to lose more weight than subjects taking a placebo supplement. The scientists said the extra calcium and vitamin D had an appetite-suppressing effect. In another study, overweight people who took a daily vitamin D supplement improved their heart disease risk markers. Beware of D-ficiency Many factors can affect your ability to get sufficient amounts of vitamin D through the sun alone. These factors include: Being in an area with high pollutionUsing sunscreenSpending more time indoorsLiving in big cities where buildings block sunlightHaving darker skin. (The higher the levels of melanin, the less vitamin D the skin can absorb.) These factors contribute to vitamin D deficiency in an increasing number of people. That’s why it’s important to get some of your vitamin D from sources besides sunlight. The symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency in adults include: tiredness, aches and pains, and a general sense of not feeling wellsevere bone or muscle pain or weakness that may cause difficulty climbing stairs or getting up from the floor or a low chair, or cause you to walk with a waddling gaitstress fractures, especially in your legs, pelvis, and hips Doctors can diagnose a vitamin D deficiency by performing a simple blood test. If you have a deficiency, your doctor may order X-rays to check the strength of your bones. If you’re diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency, your doctor will likely recommend you take daily vitamin D supplements. If you have a severe deficiency, they may instead recommend high-dose vitamin D tablets or liquids. You should also make sure to get vitamin D through sunlight and the foods you eat. Food sources of vitamin D Few foods contain vitamin D naturally. Because of this, some foods are fortified. This means that vitamin D has been added. Foods that contain vitamin D include: salmonsardinesegg yolkshrimpmilk (fortified)cereal (fortified)yogurt (fortified)orange juice (fortified) It can be hard to get enough vitamin D each day through sun exposure and food alone, so taking vitamin D supplements can help. How much do you need? There has been some controversy over the amount of vitamin D needed for healthy functioning. Recent research indicates that you need more vitamin D than was once thought. Normal blood serum levels range from 50 to 100 micrograms per deciliter. Depending on your blood level, you may need more vitamin D. Dr. Venkata seshaiah

How to Get the Most out of Vitamin Supplements- Thomas DeLauer: When should you take your vitamins? To learn more about how I can help you, head to http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Many factors play a role on how available vitamins and supplements are when you take them. Fat-Soluble Vitamins: Vitamins A, D, E and K- These are stored in the liver and fat stores in your body, so you do not need to consume these every day. They are easy to get from food as they are not easily broken down by heat when cooking. These are the most important vitamins to eat with food, as the name implies, they are only absorbed and used by the body in the presence of fat. These vitamins dissolve in fat and are then delivered to the bloodstream for use in the body. Not much fat is needed, but if taking a supplement, or even eating fruits and veggies, but sure to have some fat added. If you make a healthy smoothie, add some almond butter or you favorite oil, such as macadamia nut oil. When eating salads, do not use fat-free salad dressings! Olive oil and lemon juice are great options. Be careful if you supplement these vitamins and be sure to check with your doctor if you feel you may need to do so. These vitamins are only needed in small quantities and can build up to a dangerous level if too many are taken. Vitamin D is the main fat-soluble vitamin in the US where deficiencies are common. This is due to inadequate exposure to sunlight. Fortified foods and supplements can help. Try to obtain 5-15 minutes of direct sunlight twice per week to avoid a deficiency, and if this is not possible then talk to your doctor about supplementation. Water-Soluble Vitamins: Vitamin C and B-complex vitamins are water soluble vitamins that you need to be sure to include in your diet daily. Unlike fat-soluble vitamins, these vitamins are not stored in your adipose tissue or liver and are in essence washed from your body daily. Food storage and preparation are important when making sure to get sufficient quantities of these vitamins. Deficiencies are uncommon, however vegans do not have a natural source of vitamin B12 and usually need to supplement. While deficiencies are not common, it is still important to consume daily for bodily functioning. As these vitamins dissolve in water, you do not need to take these with foods, although you can if you want to. Minerals: Calcium and Magnesium (2,4) - These are best taken with food and good to take at night. Calcium is linked to improved sleep due to its muscle relaxing abilities and magnesium has calming effects on the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Zinc (2,4) - Take with or after meals to avoid stomach upset. Do not take with dairy as calcium hampers absorption. Also avoid taking with iron as large quantities of iron can also hurt your body’s ability to absorb zinc. Avoid taking excess zinc, which can lead to anemia through suppression of copper absorption. Iron (4) - Best to take on an empty stomach. Avoid taking with zinc, calcium and vitamin E as these can decrease absorption. If you have a sensitive stomach you may not do well when taking iron on an empty stomach. If so, take with a light meal. Probiotics (4) - Best to take 30 minutes before a meal as this is when digestive enzymes, bile salts and stomach acid are at low levels. These levels peak after a meal, so this is the worst time to take a probiotic. Fiber (2) - Be sure to separate taking fiber from other nutritional supplements as fiber can hamper mineral absorption. Fish Oil (4) – Fish Oil is best to take with food and with your multivitamin, or other fat-soluble vitamins, if you take them. The fat in the food that you eat can help to aid in digestion and absorption. As fats take a long time for your body to digest, it is best not to take fish oil pills or eat a fatty meal pre-workout. This can cause digestive upset. Multivitamins: As these contain both water- and fat-soluble vitamins, take with plenty of water and some food with fat in it, but try not to take with dairy as this can reduce your absorption of zinc.

For more info: https://draxe.com/vitamin-d-deficiency-symptoms/?utm_campaign=Youtube-Apr-2015&utm_medium=social&utm_source=youtube&utm_term=vitaminddeficiency In this video I’m going to talk about the benefits of vitamin D as well as symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. In certain studies, Americans has been found to be the #1 population in vitamin D deficiency. Some of the main symptoms of vitamin D deficiency are a weakened immune system, candida or bacterial overgrowth, emotional ups and downs, hormone imbalance, trouble putting on muscle or losing weight, weakened bones or teeth, cancer, heart disease, or diabetes. Vitamin D supports having a healthy immune response, digestive health, hormone balance, and more. The biggest causes of vitamin D deficiency are not getting enough sunlight, certain chemicals from plastic bottles (bpa), and toxicity. Try to get outside everyday for about 20-30 minutes of natural sunlight. Certain foods that are sources of vitamin D are wild caught fish, raw fermented milk, mushrooms, and eggs. However, there are small amounts in the food you eat. For a good supplement, I would recommend a high quality vitamin D supplement. You don’t want to take vitamin D2, but you do want to take vitamin D3. For supplementation, take about 2000-5000 IUs a day. However, if you have a severe deficiency, then for 1-2 months, you may take 5000 IUs twice daily. Lastly, you want to take your vitamin D3 with some form of fat like coconut oil or avocado to help absorption in your body.

The amount of vitamins and minerals you absorb from the foods you eat can range from 10 percent to 90 percent! Why is the range so large? Several factors have an impact on the percentage of nutrients you actually get from your food, including (but not limited to): how the food is prepared, any drugs or supplements you may be taking, your age, health status, time of day, and other foods you are eating at the same time.Here are 5 other ways to better absorb vitamins and minerals from your food: 1.

We often get this vitamin from exposure to sunlight, but it is also obtained by eating certain foods such as fish and dairy products. Vitamin D supplementation is also popular, since getting enough of this vitamin is difficult from diet alone. Unfortunately, there are quite a few individuals who are deficient in this vitamin without even knowing it as the signs and symptoms are either subtle or not well known. Over time this could have a negative effect on an individuals quality of life. Lets discuss some signs and symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. 1. Those who are vitamin D deficient may feel more fatigued and tired. Since there are so many reasons why we can feel tired and fatigued during the day, such as lack of sleep or obesity, vitamin D deficiency is often overlooked. Vitamin D deficiency can cause daytime fatigue or even make it harder to get out of bed in the mornings, even with quality sleep. 2. Vitamin D plays an important role in keeping our immune system strong and free from different bacteria and illness. This is because vitamin D directly effects the cells that are responsible for fighting against infection. Therefore, another sign and symptom of vitamin D deficiency is getting sick more often. Low levels of vitamin D can be a contributing factor to becoming infected with cold and flus more often. As well, it has been found that taking vitamin D supplements may reduce the risk of certain respiratory tract infections. 3. Another possible symptom of vitamin D deficiency is bone and lower back pain. Vitamin D is an important vitamin for maintaining overall bone health. It supports bone health and helps with the body’s absorption of calcium. It has been found that those individuals with a vitamin D deficiency were more like to have back pain which often limited their daily activities. As well, they were also more likely to have bone pain through out their bodies, such as in their legs and joints. A deficiency in this vitamin will not only cause bone pain, but it can also cause bone loss since it not only helps with calcium absorption, but also bone metabolism. This can lead to lower bone mineral density. 4. Vitamin D deficiency may also negatively effect our mood. Feelings of depression may be a sign of vitamin D deficiency. This has often been linked to older adults. By being deficient in this vitamin, it may also cause seasonal depression during the colder months, when exposure to sunlight is limited. Depression and all mental health symptoms are complex and should be discussed with your medical practitioner to determine its exact cause and remedy. 5. Lastly, another sign and symptom of vitamin D deficiency may be hair loss. When hair loss is severe, this can be the result of nutrient deficiency. Hair loss may be a sign of vitamin D deficiency in female-patten hair loss. As well, there have been links found between low levels of vitamin D and alopecia areata, and low levels of this vitamin may be a risk factor for developing this autoimmune disease which can effect hair loss. Be sure to discuss any of the above signs and symptoms with your medical practitioner to determine their exact cause and also to discuss the correct amount of vitamin D you should be taking daily to support your health.

This video focuses on the causes of vitamin B12, the main symptoms, as well as some tips on how to remedy this deficiency in a totally natural way. Since it increases energy in the evening and gives a boost of energy while doing cardio exercises, vitamin B12 is often referred to as the "energy" vitamin. In addition, it looks like an effective weight loss tool and has become all the rage in medical weight loss clinic. Its popularity goes to the size of clinics and health spas that offer discounts for vitamin B12 injections. Vitamin B12 is of utmost importance as it takes a vital role in many bodily functions. These include: - Good digestion. - Iron Absorption. - Fat and Carbohydrate Metabolism. - Nervous growth and training. - Healthy reproductive system in women. - Adrenal hormone secretion. - Circulation. - Formation of red blood cells. - Healthy nervous system. CAUSES OF DEFICIENCY OF VITAMIN B12. Vitamin B12 deficiency can be triggered by different factors, of which the following are the most common: - Antacids affect the assimilation of vitamin B12 because the body needs enough stomach acid to absorb it. - Nitrous oxide, also known as laughter gas, destroys vitamin B12 in the body - Drinking more than 4 cups of coffee a day leads to a 15 percent reduction in vitamin B12 levels. - Gastric bypass weight loss surgery changes digestive mechanisms, affecting the absorption of vitamin B12. - The H. pylori bacterium destroys the stomach cells that create the "intrinsic factor", which are necessary for the absorption of vitamin B12. SYMPTOMS OF DEFICIENCY OF VITAMIN B12. Optic Nerves / Vision Problems. In case you notice any changes in your vision, such as double or blurred vision, test your vitamin B12 levels, since deficiency in this vitamin often leads to vision problems. Anxiety. Since vitamin B12 stimulates the production of dopamine and serotonin, known as "happy" brain chemicals, anxiety is often a warning sign of low levels of vitamin B12. Changes in taste. The blows on the tongue are responsible for recognizing the taste of the food you eat. In case you notice changes in your taste and often get a 'blah' impression of food, it is very likely that you are deficient in vitamin B12. Yellow skin. When the body lacks vitamin B12, it loses its ability to produce strong cells. The degradation of red blood cells causes yellow skin and is a sure sign of vitamin B12 deficiency. Memory loss. Memory loss is often caused by vitamin B12 deficiency, especially in young people who are young to develop dementia. Inability to keep your eyes open. This is a result of lack of oxygen in the blood, which is caused directly by deficiency of the vitamin itself. Dizziness. Feeling dizzy is another sign of lack of oxygen in the blood. Numbness. Sensation of numbness and tingling is the result of nerve damage, which occurs due to vitamin B12 deficiency. RISK GROUPS READY TO B12 DEFICIENCY. - Vegans and vegetarians who do not eat animal products. - Diabetics on Metformin, since this drug affects the absorption of vitamin B12. - People 60 years or older who do not have enough stomach acid. - People diagnosed with autoimmune disorders, such as celiac or Crohn's disease.

Why Your Body Need Vitamin D??? What Are Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms??? https://youtu.be/zjbPUqXqadc Body Need Vitamin D, Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms Warning Signs Of Vitamin D Deficiency Vitamin D is a type of vitamin which is fat-soluble. There are very few foods that are enriched with vitamin D. Therefore, it is added in various foods or consumed in the form of supplements. The prime source of vitamin D is sunlight. Therefore, regular exposure to sunlight can meet the vitamin D requirement of the body. Vitamin D is essential for the body in many ways. It helps the body in absorbing calcium from food which is indispensable for bone health and teeth. It promotes healthy cell growth and helps in building muscle mass. It is an important component of the body’s immune system which provides safeguard against diseases like cancer, diabetes and hypertension. Apart from that, there are some preliminary signs and symptoms that might be helpful in recognizing it. Here are some of the warning signs of vitamin D deficiency. Depression Depression is more common in people with low levels of vitamin D in their blood. The reason behind this is that the hippo-campus and other areas of the brain involved in regulating the mood contain vitamin D receptors. Low levels may affect the ability of these regions to function normally. Poor Bone Health When vitamin D is not present in adequate amounts in your body, the absorption of calcium decreases in your body making your bones weak. Pain in your bones, joints, and pain in your back are the common signs of having inadequate vitamin D in your blood. Fatigue Suffering from chronic fatigue can be an early sign of the deficiency. If you feel low in energy practically every day, even after a good night sleep, it is time to go for a vitamin deficiency test. Dark Skin: It has observed seen that dark-skinned people have very less amount of vitamin D in their body. Dark-skinned people need more exposure to the sun as compared to pale-skinned people. Heart Conditions There exists a probable correlation between low vitamin D levels and cardiovascular disease. Medical professionals believe that low levels of the vitamin result in higher concentrations of calcium build up in the arteries; calcium buildup is plaque that forms in the arteries and increases the risk of heart attack or stroke. HEAD SWEATS One of the classic symptoms of low vitamin D is to have head sweats. This has been a cue for low D levels for years. In fact, pediatricians use this symptom to help determine if newborn babies are low in vitamin D. Respiratory Infections Vitamin D deficiency in your child can cause him or her to have a weaker immune system. In both infants and older children suffering from a deficiency of this vitamin, there is an increased risk of getting chest colds. They are also more prone to respiratory infections than others. Adequate exposure of sunlight is beneficial during pregnancy and new-born babies and infants. If anyone has vitamin D deficiency, it can be detected with the help of a simple blood test.

To support our channel and level up your health, check out: Our Fast Weight Loss Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/the-science-of-fast-weight-loss-course Our Better Health Basics Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/food-health-happiness Today we’re going to be talking about how to get taller naturally and what the science says about increasing your height. Let’s get into it by starting with some myths about height growth as there are quite a few • Jumping rope • Drinking tons of milk • Playing certain sports like basketball or swimming • Hanging upside down from the ceiling like Spiderman. • Doing yoga or certain types of exercise • Putting salt in your shoes All of these things are NOT going to make you taller and things like caffeine, diet coke, and weight lifting will not stunt your growth. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/18/health/the-claim-drinking-coffee-can-stunt-a-childs-growth.html These are all complete myths and have the same scientific credibility of bigfoot. So, can I actually get taller naturally after puberty? Natural growth usually stops between ages 18-25 when your bones ossify and your epiphyseal plates seal off. Once those plates are sealed, 90% of potential growth is done. What factors effect growth? Roughly 60-80% of your height is determined by genetics while the other 20%-40% is determined by nutrition and hormone secretion. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-much-of-human-height/ Here are 5 Important Factors for Naturally Height Growth and Maximizing Your Current Height 1. Eat a lot of calories, including protein. After the world war II, Japan added in a lot more fish protein and calories into their natural diets and because of this, saw the average height of the country increase by 3 inches. http://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/inside-japan-surprising-facts-about-japanese-foodways/ Countries like Denmark have also shown that the height of the country increases as it’s wealth and consumption of calories grows. http://www.randalolson.com/2014/06/23/why-the-dutch-are-so-tall/ So eat lots of whole natural foods especially during those early years for more growth. 2. Sleeeeeeeeep Especially during the hours of 10pm-2am because those are the most important hours for height hormone secretion. Both human growth hormones and testosterone play vital roles in the height and they have massive spikes during that time of rest. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3065172/ So if you’re a young person, those late nights on the hotline bling are not cutting it if you want to be tall. 3. Get lots of vitamin D Go out in the sun and get up your natural vitamin D because this hormone also plays a major role on testosterone secretion. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21154195 On the days you’re not out in the sun you can supplement with vitamin D3. 4. Don’t consume crap While factors improving height is still hotly debated, it is well known that certain foods and substances do stunt one’s potential growth. Sodas contain phosphorous which has been shown to lower bone density. Soy products like tofu and soy sauce contain phytic acid which can reduce the absorption of calcium. Children who too much sugar tend to be shorter than their peers. http://www.livestrong.com/article/554090-does-sugar-permanently-stunt-the-growth-in-children/ Finally smoking doesn’t seem to help either as it’s been documented to stunt the growth of teenage boys. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/03/080331135155.htm If you just focus on consuming lots of dark leafy greens, fresh fruits, whole proteins, healthy fats and having the occasional treat, you will be fine! 5. Improve posture This is something you can do at any age that will improve your height. Just stand with your butt, shoulders, and back of you head against a wall for 20 minutes a day. This is the correct posture for your spine and may feel a little weird the first time you do it. This process alone can add 2 or so inches to your height depending on how much slouching you do. Also, consider doing some Yoga and stretch out those hip flexors that get weakened from sitting all day! Closing thought nerd family: What’s much more noticeable than one’s height is how one carry’s themselves. There are plenty of tall people who appear short and shorter people who appear tall based on their confidence, presence, and overall energy. While there’s not much one can do to improve their height, how you feel, look and love yourself is completely in your control. It may not make you any taller, but it can help you shed excess weight, feel better about yourself, and start to love the way you look. #1. Don’t fall for myths or common ploys #2. Consume plenty of calories and healthy proteins #3. Sleep lots #4. Get in vitamin D daily #5. Don’t consume crap #6. Stand tall nerds!

However, for many people, the symptoms are subtle. Yet, even without symptoms, too little vitamin D can pose health risks. Low blood levels of the vitamin have been associated with the following: Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease Cognitive impairment in older adults Severe asthma in children Cancer Research suggests that vitamin D could play a role in the prevention and treatment of a number of different conditions, including type1 and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, glucose intolerance, and multiple sclerosis. Vitamin D deficiency can occur for a number of reasons. You don't consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. This is likely if you follow a strict vegan diet, because most of the natural sources are animal-based, including fish and fish oils, egg yolks, cheese, fortified milk, and beef liver. Your exposure to sunlight is limited. Because the body makes vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight, you may be at risk of deficiency if you are homebound, live in northern latitudes, wear long robes or head coverings for religious reasons, or have an occupation that prevents sun exposure.You have dark skin. The pigment melanin reduces the skin's ability to make vitamin D in response to sunlight exposure. Some studies show that older adults with darker skin are at high risk of vitamin D deficiency.Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin D to its active form. As people age, their kidneys are less able to convert vitamin D to its active form, thus increasing their risk of vitamin D deficiency. Your digestive tract cannot adequately absorb vitamin D. Certain medical problems, including Crohn's disease, cystic fibrosis, and celiac disease, can affect your intestine's ability to absorb vitamin D from the food you eat. You are obese. Vitamin D is extracted from the blood by fat cells, altering its release into the circulation. People with a body mass index of 30 or greater often have low blood levels of vitamin D. Treatment for vitamin D deficiency involves getting more vitamin D -- through diet and supplements. Although there is no consensus on vitamin D levels required for optimal health -- and it likely differs depending on age and health conditions -- a concentration of less than 20 nanograms per milliliter is generally considered inadequate, requiring treatment. Guidelines from the Institute of Medicine increased the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of vitamin D to 600 international units (IU) for everyone ages 1-70, and raised it to 800 IU for adults older than age 70 to optimize bone health. The safe upper limit was also raised to 4,000 IUs. If you don't spend much time in the sun or always are careful to cover your skin (sunscreen inhibits vitamin D production), you should speak to your doctor about taking a vitamin D supplement, particularly if you have risk factors for vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin which is essential for optimal health. This vitamin is mostly made in the skin by exposure to sunlight but some foods contain very little vitamin D naturally. Vitamin D is needed for the absorption and use of phosphorus and calcium from the small intestine and is also crucial for normal mineralization of bones. Moreover, this vitamin fights infections, including flu and colds, as it regulates the expression of genes that influence your immune system to attack and destroy viruses and harmful bacteria. Currently, it is estimated more than 1 billion people worldwide have low vitamin D levels. Vitamin D deficiency can result from many reasons, including - inadequate exposure to sunlight, too much sunscreen protection, certain prescription medications, pregnancy, dark skin pigmentation, and abnormal intestinal absorption. The most accurate way to measure how much vitamin D you have in your body is the 25-hydroxy vitamin D blood test. A level less than 12 ng/mL signifies vitamin D deficiency. A level of 20 nanograms/milliliter to 50 ng/mL is considered adequate for healthy people. Vitamin D deficiency doesn’t always cause symptoms, however, sometimes it does, and some of the symptoms may include: #1 Depression - studies have linked low levels of vitamin D with episodes of depression. This usually occurs particularly during the winter months because of the lack of sun during that time of year. #2 Obesity - the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency is higher in persons with high subcutaneous adiposity and high visceral adiposity than in individuals with low subcutaneous and visceral adiposity. #3 Fatigue - this vitamin is necessary for the body to produce energy. Hence, if you are constantly tired, best to play it safe and get your vitamin D levels checked. #4 Headaches - according to a Finnish study, people with the lowest levels of vitamin D were more than twice as likely to have headaches at least once a week, compared to those with the highest levels. #5 Mood changes and irritability - the so-called happy hormone (serotonin) falls with a lack of sun exposure. Therefore, if you feel low or irritable, it could be a sign. #6 Restless sleep - the connection between restless sleep and vitamin D deficiency is not surprising since vitamin D is involved in the regulation of phosphorous and calcium as well as brain function and immune regulation. #7 Bone pain - low blood levels of vitamin D may be a contributing factor to bone pain and lower back pain. #8 A general unwell feeling - subtle aches and an overall feeling of being unwell may be a primary symptom of a vitamin D deficiency. #9 Sweating too much - excessive sweating due to overstimulation of sweat glands is described as an early symptom of vitamin D deficiency. The most common areas for this to occur is the neck and head. #10 Low immunity - one of the most common symptoms of deficiency in vitamin D is an increased risk of illness or infections because it has a significant role in the immune function. #11 High blood pressure - numerous studies have concluded that there is a link between vitamin D and high blood pressure. Important note - Most experts recommend getting about 15 minutes per day of direct sunlight without wearing sunscreen if you are fair to medium toned. More importantly, if you have dark skin, you will likely need more time in the sun to produce sufficient vitamin D since your skin has more protection against the sun’s effects. Cruciferous vegetables contain a compound which helps you use vitamin D better. This compound is called sulforaphane, and you’ll find it in cruciferous plants (including cabbage, cauliflower, kale, and broccoli) and spicy herbs. Thank you.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video explains about the Important vitamins for bone health. Vitamin A Vitamin A is important for vision as it works on the retina. Deficiency of vitamin A leads to poor night time vision. Bone metabolism: Osteoclasts are irregular shaped giant cells that break down or reabsorbs the bone. Vitamin A is important for bone metabolism and bone remodeling. It is also important for differentiation of immune cells and maintains skin health. Vitamin A is found in dairy product, sweet potatoes, beef liver and raw carrots. Vitamin B6 Vitamin B6 is important for synthesis of mood boosting hormones such as serotonin, it makes you feel good. It also plays a role in hemoglobin synthesis. The red blood cells contain large quantities of proteins called hemoglobin which bind to oxygen loosely and reversibly. Oxygen molecules bind at the center of each heme molecule. Heme makes it possible for the red blood cells to pick up oxygen for delivery to the cells of the body. Red blood cells carry oxygen from the lungs and deliver it to the body tissues. White blood cells from our immune system and help the body to fight against infection and foreign materials. Vitamin B6 is found in foods like: bananas, ham, chicken, potatoes, eggs, salmon, tuna, apricot, pistachios, sunflower seed, and peanut butter. Causes of Vitamin B6 deficiency are isoniazid intake which is used in treatment of TB, and L-dopa which is used in treatment of Parkinson's disease. Vitamin B6 deficiency may lead to sideroblastic anemia, chelosis or stomatitis which is cracking of lips and corners of the mouth, convulsions, altered touch sensation and mania. In orthopedics, Vitamin B6 is used as an adjuvant treatment in cubital tunnel syndrome and carpal tunnel syndromes. It is given orally 50 mgs, twice daily Vitamin B12 Whenever you think of vitamin B12 think neuropathy and pernicious anemia. Vitamin B12 deficiency takes years to develop. Vitamin A is stored in the liver for 6 months. Vitamin D is stored in the skin and fat for 3 months. Vitamin B12 is found in beef liver, oysters, and tuna. Vitamin B12 leads to accumulation of methylmalonic acid. Vitamin B12 leads to peripheral neuropathy because it affects myelin formation. Vitamin B12 levels should be obtained in patients with peripheral sensory neuropathy (normal values are 200-900 picograms per milliliter). Also, perform tolerance test to rule out diabetes as a cause of peripheral neuropathy. Vitamin B12 deficiency leads to peripheral sensory neuropathy, megaloblastic anemia, muscle weakness and movement problems, and memory problems. Risk factors for developing Vitamin B12 deficiency include pernicious anemia, gastric resection surgery, chronic pancreatitis, severe malnutrition and vegan diet. In the gut, Vitamin B12 is carried on intrinsic factor which protects it from proteolytic enzymes. Intrinsic factor also helps the vitamin to be absorbed in the terminal ileum. The nervous system is affected in three parts: 1. The dorsal column: Affection of the dorsal column leads to problems in positions and vibration sensation as well as sensory ataxia. 2. The lateral corticospinal tracts: Affection of the lateral corticospinal tracts leads to hyperreflexia, spasticity and pathological reflexes which are all signs of upper motor neuron involvement. 3. Peripheral nerves: Axonal degeneration of the peripheral nerves leads to numbness and paresthesia. In pernicious anemia labs will show MCV greater than 100, low hemoglobin concentration and low RBC count. Vitamin C Vitamin C is found in citrus fruit, and green leafy vegetables. Vitamin C is important for proper collagen synthesis. It is required for neurotransmitter production. It protects the capillary lining of blood vessels and inhibits vascular permeability. It is an antioxidant and enables iron absorption from the intestine. It actively protects against osteoporosis. Vitamin C deficiency may lead to scurvy. Scurvy leads to bleeding gums, loose teeth, bleeding in the skin and mucous membranes. Low vitamin C leads to defective collagen synthesis, fragile capillaries, abnormal gum bleeding, abnormal bone formation at the growth plate with widening of the zone of provisional calcification. Vitamin C is used in orthopedics to reduce the risk of RSD following reduction and internal fixation of distal radial fractures. The dosage used is 500 mg daily for 50 days beginning the day after surgery.

We hear all about this all the time, but is it really true? Does wimpy old vitamin D NEED Vitamin K? http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Do you need vitamin k with vitamin d? Vitamin D A hormone, not an actual vitamin, that your skin makes when exposed to sunlight, so it does not need to acquire it from food if adequate sunlight is available The only natural foods that contain vitamin D are fish and egg yolks Most of us are deficient in vitamin D as we do not spend much time outdoors. Additionally, where we live can limit our access to vitamin D - if you live below 37 degrees south or above 37 degrees north you do not have access to sufficient sunlight except during the summer months. ( This line of latitude crosses below Colorado, Utah and Kansas, so the majority of us in the US require additional dietary vitamin D throughout the year even if we spend time outdoors Sunscreen and skin pigmentation can also act as barriers to vitamin D absorption What Does Vitamin D Do? Reduces belly fat Of all the places to lose fat, the middle of our bodies is usually the hardest and the most important, both for looking lean and for being healthy. Waist-to-hip ratio is a factor in your risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes Research bomb: A study published in the journal of Clinical Nutrition had 23 overweight participants who all went through a 12-week resistance training program. Half of them took 4,000 IU’s of vitamin D while the others received a placebo. While both groups lost the same amount of fat, the group that took the vitamin D supplements were more likely to have lowered their waist-to-hip ratio to a greater extent when compared to the placebo group. (3) Hormone Regulation and Bone Health The parathyroid glands, located in your neck, release parathyroid hormone. Parathyroid hormone regulates the calcium in your body: When the level of calcium in your blood is low, your parathyroid releases PTH. PTH signals for calcium to be leeched from bones and released into the blood, while also telling your kidneys to create more bioavailable vitamin D. This form of active vitamin D tells your gut to absorb more calcium, as long as you have sufficient vitamin D available. When you are deficient in vitamin D, your body will not absorb enough calcium from your diet and too much calcium will be taken from the bones to be available in the blood. Calcium plays more roles than just bone health - it is crucial for proper functioning of your nervous and muscular systems, so the body is able to take calcium from the bones to perform other functions. Vitamin K Vitamin K is helpful in blood clotting and bone strength. May also help to prevent heart disease, prostate cancer and Alzheimer’s Vitamin K2 and vitamin D3 work together to strengthen bones through their impact on calcium While vitamin D3 essentially regulates how much calcium is absorbed in the diet, vitamin K2 tells the calcium where to go, directing it to bones rather than soft tissues. When calcium attaches to arteries, known as hardening of the arteries, it can lead to cardiovascular complications. Without vitamin K2, the calcium absorbed will not go towards strengthening your bones, and thus vitamin K2 is crucial in the functioning of vitamin D3. Vitamin K2 comes from meats, eggs, hard cheeses and insects. Many people are also deficient in vitamin K2. Diet and Supplementation The best way to stay healthy is to eat a balanced diet full of leafy greens, fruits, veggies and lean proteins. This is how we can be sure we are obtaining a full range of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin D3 is one vitamin/hormone that we often have to supplement. If your supplement vitamin D3, be sure to obtain enough vitamin K2, either through a diet with meats and eggs, or through supplementation as well. Also be sure to obtain calcium through your diet, such as yogurt, leafy greens and legumes, or through supplementation. If you do not have all three in your diet, you may be doing more harm than good. References: 1.

Five major factors that enhance calcium absorption include: sufficient sunlight, adequate sleep, appropriate exercise, a diet predominated by fruits and vegetables that also supplies not more than single-digit quantities of proteins and fats, and avoidance of the various factors that result in calcium losses: dairy, meat, coffee, soft drinks, and a wide variety of prescription drugs. Calcium absorption is directly affected by sunlight exposure via the connection with Vitamin D. Through a relatively complicated series of chemical reactions, we produce storable, fat-soluble Vitamin D as a result of direct exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D plays a critical role in our ability to store and utilize calcium. Calcium is needed for the proper functioning of every cell of the body. During the summer months, most people can obtain all the sunshine they require for healthy calcium metabolism in less than 15 minutes of daily exposure to the sun. The lower the sun is in the sky, the less Vitamin D we produce as a response to sunlight, meaning that during the winter months, unless you live with 2000 or so miles from the equator, you will likely not be able to manufacture sufficient Vitamin D, and will have to pull from your stores. Typically three to four months of Vitamin D can be stored. This is an excerpt from Perpetual Health 365 *eBook, to read more purchase a copy.

https://youtu.be/POg65TnfaCc BUILDING STRONG BONES WITH CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS AND VITAMIN D is a video that will give you information abaut BUILDING STRONG BONES WITH CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS AND VITAMIN D include the problems of bone like osteoporosis, calcium supplements, vitamin d, bone density, build strong bones, how to build strong bones,bone supplements,BMD test and manymore. here is the long description of this video : Build Strong Bones Characterized by weak and brittle bones, osteoporosis and its precursor osteopenia affect 44 million Americans and lead to more than 2 million bone fractures every year. There's a lot you can do to keep your bones strong and lower your risk of osteoporosis. It's never too early to start. Think of your bones as a retirement savings account: You need to bank a lot of funds when you're young so that you have plenty to draw upon as you get older. Bones reach peak density by the early 30s. From then on, your job is to keep those levels up by getting enough calcium and vitamin D, exercising, and taking other steps. Start Young Think of your bones as a retirement savings account; you need to bank a lot of funds when you're young so that you have plenty to draw on as you get older. Bones reach peak density when you're in your 20s. From then on, your job is to keep those levels up by getting enough calcium and vitamin D, exercising, and taking other steps. Know Your T-Score Osteoporosis is often called a silent disease because you won’t display obvious, outward symptoms until a bone breaks — obviously not a sign you want to wait for. A bone mineral density (BMD) test can tell you how strong your bones are. The results of this test are given as a number called a T-score. Your doctor can combine your T-score with other risk factors like your age and gender to determine your actual risk of breaking a bone in the next 10 years. Milk It Milk is full of calcium (the foundation of healthy bones) and vitamin D (helps the body absorb calcium). Additionally, vitamin D helps build and repair bones and keeps muscles strong, which reduces the risk of falls. Women age 50 and younger and men age 70 and younger should aim for 1,000 mg of calcium per day. Older men and women should aim for 1,200 mg of calcium a day. This is the equivalent of about four glasses of nonfat milk or three cups of nonfat yogurt. Men and women under the age of 50 should aim to consume 400-800 IU of vitamin D per day. People over the age of 50 should aim for 1,000 IU of vitamin D daily. Don't Smoke, Limit Drinking Smoking increases the rate of bone loss. Women who smoke have lower levels of estrogen and tend to hit menopause at a younger age, both of which accelerate bone loss. If you drink, keep it to no more than two drinks a day for men and one drink a day for women. Anything more will interfere with your body's ability to absorb calcium and will also slow new bone formation. Meat in Moderation The popular saying “all things in moderation” definitely applies to meat, especially when it comes to healthy bones. Calcium and phosphorous help the body digest animal protein. Eating too much red meat, fish, pork, and poultry can sap these resources from the bone. On the other hand, protein deficiency hinders calcium absorption in the intestines. The solution? Limit your animal protein intake to no more than twice a day, and eat small portions—about 3 ounces, or the size of a deck of cards. Ask Mom & Dad Genetic traits determine a lot of factors that affect your overall bone health, including your bone size, bone mass, when you'll go through menopause, and how well your body uses calcium and vitamin D. These traits are passed down from father to son and mother to daughter. By knowing your family history, you can take appropriate steps to intervene, including earlier screening for osteoporosis and use of appropriate medications. Cut Back on Sodium Too much sodium causes calcium to leach out of your bones and then be expelled through the urine, according to the Cleveland Clinic. To keep more calcium in your bones (and less in the toilet bowl), follow a low-sodium diet by cutting down on processed foods and keeping the saltshaker off the table. Stay Active Weight bearing exercises — activities that force you to work against gravity — strengthen bone by stimulating bone-building cells called osteoblasts. High-impact exercises like running, tennis, basketball, and kickboxing strengthen bones the fastest. Exercise regimens that are even more moderate do the trick too. Try brisk walking or simple vertical jumps instead, if high-impact moves aren't safe for you. ...

This week Reactions explores the chemistry and science that goes on to the nutrients when you cook vegetables. Vegetables are chock-full of essential vitamins and minerals, but how should you eat them to get the most nutritious bang for your buck? Raw? Sauteed? Frozen? You might want to eat those fresh green beans right away, for one — flash-frozen green beans kept for months have up to three times more vitamin C than week-old beans kept in the fridge. And did you know that oil-based dressing and avocados can help you absorb more nutrients from that kale salad.

It include four steps:- Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion. 1-Absorption - the process of a substance entering the blood circulation. 2-Distribution - the dispersion or dissemination of substances throughout the fluids and tissues of the body. 3-Metabolism (or biotransformation, or inactivation) – the recognition by the organism that a foreign substance is present and the irreversible transformation of parent compounds into daughter metabolites. 4-Excretion - the removal of the substances from the body. In rare cases, some drugs irreversibly accumulate in body tissue. Volume of distribution is the The apparent volume in which a drug is distributed after reaches to equilibrium. Bio availability-The systemically available fraction of a drug. Half life-This is the period of time required for the concentration or amount of drug in the body to be reduced by one-half.. Loading dose-A loading dose is an initial higher dose of a drug that may be given at the beginning of a course of treatment before dropping down to a lower maintenance dose. Factors Affecting Absorption- PH, Area of absorbing Surface, Presence of other Substances Factor affecting distribution-Lipophilicity, Blood flow, Capillary Permeability, Plasma & Tissue Binding, Volume of distribution(Vd) Passive diffusion-Movement from higher to lower concentration. Facilitated diffusion-Movement from higher to lower via career protein. Active diffusion-Energy dependent diffusion. Endocytosis-Engulfment of larger molecules by cell.

Most people are aware that eating too much sugar can cause high blood glucose, insulin spikes and obesity. It can also elevate the risk of CHRONIC DISEASES LIKE HEART DISEASE, diabetes and cancer. However, excess glucose can also lead to nutrient deficiencies that impact the levels of vitamins and minerals that are able to reach the cells. Sugar does this by depleting and reducing the absorption of key vitamins and minerals, which can lead to nutrient deficiencies. The following vitamins and minerals are the most at risk for depletion from the presence of too much glucose in the body. Vitamin C is in jeopardy due to sugar Humans are among a small group of mammals unable to synthesize VITAMIN C on our own. Additionally, both vitamin C and glucose use the same transporters, and high glucose levels can slow and limit vitamin C absorption in the body. There is literally a competition between glucose and vitamin C in the bloodstream. When adequate vitamin C cannot reach the cells, the result is reduced immune functioning and suppressed tissue regeneration. Magnesium gets depleted by eating too much sugar MAGNESIUM is required by just about every organ in the body. It regulates nerve and muscle functioning, helps create protein, synthesizes DNA, builds bone, and regulates blood sugar levels. High blood sugar and elevated insulin increases magnesium excretion by the kidneys and causes the body to use up its reserves. The fact that magnesium is required for effective blood sugar regulation means that the presence of sugar is doubly harmful to retention of this important mineral. Vitamin D deficiencies increase with sugar consumption While VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY is most common in geographic areas with the least amount of sunshine, sugar can exacerbate the problem. It does so by increasing the presence of an enzyme that helps synthesize it. Low levels of vitamin D have been linked with inflammation, greater risk of infection, autoimmunity, dementia and certain cancers. Calcium uptake is inhibited by eating sugar As you know, CALCIUM is essential to bone health, blood coagulation and assisting in nerve and muscle contraction. Since vitamin D is required for calcium absorption, sugar indirectly suppresses the body’s intake of this essential mineral. Glucose, a form of sugar, is also linked with the increase of the kidneys’ calcium excretion through hormone suppression and inhibiting calcium reabsorption. Chromium drained by sugar Chromium is a TRACE MINERAL involved in both blood sugar control and macronutrient metabolism. While just small amounts are required by the body, an excess of sugar can cause a deficiency by triggering its excretion. Chromium deficiency can then contribute to higher blood sugar levels and poor glucose tolerance, as it is important to insulin binding. Most people are already aware of the numerous health hazards of eating too much sugar. However, its role in nutrient deficiencies and the suppression of key vitamins and minerals in the body may not be as familiar.

Before you buy Vitamin D3, 5000 IU - you need to learn everything there is about the best Vitamin D3 5000 IU. Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, can be produced in the body with mild sun exposure or consumed in food or supplements. Adequate vitamin D intake is important for the regulation of calcium and phosphorus absorption, maintenance of healthy bones and teeth, and is suggested to supply a protective effect against multiple diseases and conditions such as cancer, type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body, helping to: Maintain the health of bones and teeth Support the health of the immune system, brain and nervous system Regulate insulin levels and aid diabetes management Support lung function and cardiovascular health Influence the expression of genes involved in cancer development. In spite of the name, vitamin D is considered a pro-hormone and not actually a vitamin. This is because the body is capable of producing its own vitamin D through the action of sunlight on the skin, while vitamins are nutrients that cannot be synthesized by the body and must be acquired through the diet or supplements. It is estimated that sensible sun exposure on bare skin for 5-10 minutes 2-3 times per week allows the body the ability to produce sufficient vitamin D, but vitamin D has a half-life of only two weeks, meaning that stores can run low, especially in winter. Recent studies have suggested that up to 50% of adults and children worldwide are vitamin D deficient. There are several likely factors contributing to vitamin D deficiency, which will be looked at further in this article. Vitamin D is produced when sunlight converts cholesterol on the skin into calciol (vitamin D3). Vitamin D3 is then converted into calcidiol (25-hydroxyvitamin D3) in the liver. The kidneys then convert calcidiol into the active form of vitamin D, called calcitriol (1,25-hydroxyvitamin D3). As such, statins and other medications or supplements that inhibit cholesterol synthesis, liver function or kidney function can impair the synthesis of vitamin D. Fast facts on vitamin D Here are some key points about vitamin D. More detail and supporting information is in the main article. Vitamin D's primary role is to support the development and maintenance of bones and teeth. A fair-skinned person with full body exposure to the sun can synthesize up to 20,000 IU of vitamin D3 in 20 minutes. Vitamin D deficiency is common, especially in the elderly, infants, people with dark skin and people living at higher latitudes or who get little sun exposure. Vitamin D deficiency has been seen in up to 80% of hip fracture patients. 800IU of vitamin D per day reduces the risk of fracture by 20% in the elderly and decreases the risk of falls. The metabolism of vitamin D may be affected by some medications, including barbiturates, phenobarbital, dilantin, isoniazid and statin drugs. Possible health benefits of vitamin D This section looks at the potential health benefits of vitamin D, from assisting good bone health to possible cancer prevention. 1) Vitamin D for healthy bones Vitamin D plays a substantial role in the regulation of calcium and maintenance of phosphorus levels in the blood, two factors that are extremely important for maintaining healthy bones. We need vitamin D to absorb calcium in the intestines and to reclaim calcium that would otherwise be excreted through the kidneys. Doctor holding a bone scan x-ray Vitamin D deficiency in children can cause rickets, a disease characterized by a severely bow-legged appearance triggered by impaired mineralization and softening of the bones. In adults, vitamin D deficiency manifests as osteomalacia or osteoporosis. Osteomalacia results in poor bone density, muscular weakness and often causes small pseudo fractures of the spine, femur and humerus. Osteoporosis is the most common bone disease among post-menopausal women and older men. 2) Reduced risk of flu Children given 1,200 IU of vitamin D per day for 4 months during the winter reduced their risk of influenza A infection by over 40%.2 3) Reduced risk of diabetes Several observational studies have shown an inverse relationship between blood concentrations of vitamin D in the body and risk of type 2 diabetes. In type 2 diabetics, insufficient vitamin D levels may have an adverse effect on insulin secretion and glucose tolerance.3 In one particular study, infants who received 2,000 IU/day of vitamin D had an 88% lower risk of developing type 1 diabetes by the age of 32.

Our genes influence the way we absorb and metabolize micronutrients. Nutrigenomics looks at the influence genetic variation has over micronutrient absorption/metabolism and the biological consequences of this dynamic relationship. Our diet also influences which of these genes are turned on or off! Emerging evidence in the field of epigenetics has demonstrated that not only can we change the expression of our own genes within our own lifetime; sometimes these changes are heritable and affect our children and grandchildren. In this talk we’ll be exploring the intersection between genetics, nutrition, and environment: how your diet, micronutrients, exercise, heat stress, and sleep can change the expression of your genes and how this has profound effects on the way your body functions and ages. Rhonda Perciavalle Patrick, Ph.D. is an assistant scientist at Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute working with Dr. Bruce Ames. She investigates the effects of micronutrient (vitamins and minerals) deficiencies on metabolism, inflammation, DNA damage, and aging in people. She also researches the role of vitamin D in brain function and dysfunction. In addition to Rhonda’s active role as a researcher, she also functions as a science communicator for a broad lay audience via her web and video presence found at FoundMyFitness.com. She is passionate about disseminating health-related information in a way that the general public can easily understand. She is a frequent speaker and writer on topics ranging from general health and wellness, to diet and aging, to vitamins and their effects. It is Rhonda’s goal to challenge the status quo and encourage the wider public to think about health and longevity using a proactive, preventative approach. Rhonda earned her Ph.D. in biomedical science from the University of Tennessee and performed her graduate research work at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. She also has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in biochemistry/chemistry from the University of California, San Diego. She has done extensive research on aging, cancer and nutrition, and metabolism.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. The amount of calcium in circulation is MAINLY regulated by 2 hormones: parathyroid hormone (PTH) and calcitriol. PTH is produced in the parathyroid gland while calcitriol is made in the kidney. When serum calcium level is low, PTH is UP-regulated. PTH acts to PROMOTE calcium release from bones and REDUCE calcium loss from urine. At the same time, it stimulates production of calcitriol, which promotes absorption of calcium in the small intestine while also INcreases RE-absorption in the kidney. Together, they bring UP calcium levels back to normal. The REVERSE happens when calcium level is high. This feedback loop keeps serum calcium concentrations within the normal range. HYPERcalcemia is generally defined as serum calcium level GREATER than 2.6 mmol/L. Because the total serum calcium includes albumin-bound and free-ionized calcium, of which only the LATTER is physiologically active, calcium levels must be corrected to account for albumin changes. For example, INcreased albumin levels produce HIGHER serum calcium values but the amount of FREE calcium may STILL be normal. On the other hand, in conditions with low blood pH, albumin binds LESS calcium; releasing MORE FREE calcium while the total serum calcium may appear normal. Most symptoms of hypercalcemia can be attributed to the effect it has on action potential generation in neurons. High levels of extracellular calcium INHIBIT sodium channels, which are essential for DEpolarization. Hypercalcemia therefore REDUCES neuronal excitability, causing confusion, lethargy, muscle weakness and constipation. In most cases, excess calcium in the blood is a direct result of calcium release from bones as they break down, becoming weak and painful. As the kidneys try to get rid of the extra calcium, MORE water is also removed, resulting in dehydration, excessive thirst and kidney stones. Extremely high extracellular calcium may also affect cardiac action potentials, causing arrhythmias. Typical ECG findings include short QT interval, and in severe cases, presence of Osborn waves. While hypercalcemia may result from a variety of diseases and factors, HYPERparathyroidism and cancers are responsible for about 90% of cases, with the former being by far the most common cause. In HYPERparathyroidism, PTH is OVERproduced due to benign or malignant growths within the parathyroid gland. An existing cancer elsewhere in the body can cause hypercalcemia in 2 major ways. First, some cancer cells produce a protein similar to PTH, called PTHrP, which acts like PTH to increase serum calcium. Unlike PTH, however, PTHrP is NOT subject to negative feedback; consequently, calcium levels may keep rising unchecked. Second, cancers may spread to bone tissues, causing bone resorption or osteolysis, and subsequent calcium release into the blood. Hypercalcemia treatment consists of lowering blood calcium levels with a variety of drugs, and addressing the underlying cause. While treatment outcome for hyperparathyroidism is generally excellent, prognosis for malignancy-related hypercalcemia is poor, possibly because it usually occurs in later stages of cancer.
