But has there been any research showing that taking it after dx has any effect?
Longitudinal study of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and PTH levels in multiple sclerosis
M. Soilu-Hänninen, M. Laaksonen, I. Laitinen, J.-P. Erälinna, E.-M. Lilius, I. Mononen (Turku, FIN)
25(OH)D levels were lower and iPTH levels were higher during MS relapses than in remission.
Conclusion: Vitamin D is a potential regulator of the clinical disease activity in MS. Elevation of intact PTH above 20 ng/L is an indicator of a risk for MS relapse.
However, lower vitamin D levels during MS relapses than in remission suggest that vitamin D could be involved in the regulation of the clinical disease activity of MS.
The number of exacerbations observed during the program was less than one half the number expected from case histories. No side effects were apparent. The dietary regimen may offer a new means of controlling the exacerbation rate in MS, at least for younger patients. The results tend to support a theory of MS which states that calcium and magnesium are important in the development, structure and stability of myelin.
Ian I take 5 of these each morning.bromley wrote:... One health store in the UK (Holland and Barret) sells the following:
Each tablet contains 10 µg. (400 I.U) of Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), needed for growth and development especially of bones and teeth.
But I have seen articles suggesting 4000 I.U per day. Am I expected to take 10 of these tablets a day or are there other options?
