Vitamin D and primary hyperparathyroidism

Mosekilde L.

The occurrence of vitamin D (vitD) insufficiency (plasma 25OHD<50 nmol/l) and deficiency (25OHD<25 nmol/l) in primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) varies worldwide in prevalence, severity and symptoms. Epidemiological studies support that the clinical presentation of PHPT is more severe in patients with coexisting vitD deficiency. Most PHPT patients in Europe only have slightly decreased plasma 25OHD levels compared with gender-, age- and season matched controls, and sev...

Introduction: Vitamin D insufficiency is common in subjects with type 2 diabetes. Observational studies suggest that vitamin D plays a role in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes. However, results of intervention studies have been inconsistent. We investigated the effects of improving vitamin D status on insulin sensitivity and inflammatory markers in type 2 diabetic patients with vitamin D insufficiency.Methods: A double blind, randomized, placebo contr...
