low Zn = high vit D deficiency risk

Post by jimmylegs » Sun May 10, 2020 6:45 am

recalling this old debate:


i am interested in this relatively recent study and a couple of the works cited:

An assessment of the risk factors for vitamin D deficiency using a decision tree model (2019)
http://drghayour.com/wp-content/uploads ... 448691.pdf

"...In this model, 14 input variables were included: age, academic attainment of their father, waist circumference, waist to hip ratio, zinc, copper, calcium, SOD, FBG, HDL-C, RBC, MCV, MCHC, HCT. ...
The results suggest that the serum levels of Zn is an important associated risk factor for identifying subjects with vitamin D deficiency ...
The tree showed that in a subgroup with serum zinc <88 (mg/dl), the probability of having vitamin D deficiency was 98% ... the other subgroup with serum zinc >/= 88 (mg/dl), FBG >/= 98 (mg/dl), HGB < 14 and MCV >/= 91, 78% of individuals were identified as subjects with normal level of vitamin D."

take control of your own health.
pursue optimal self care, with or without a diagnosis.
