Vitamin D Deficiency Effects Joint Pain, Arthritis, Osteoporosis!
If You Suffer From Rheumatic Disease, You May Be Vitamin D Deficient!
There's nothing worse than chronic back pain, inflammatory joint disease, osteoporosis, or unexplained myalgia (muscle pain caused by nutritional deficiency), rheumatoid arthritis... or any other and all types of rheumatoid diseases.
Now there's a number of studies that point to Vitamin D deficiency as the culprit!
Studies Confirm Results of Vitamin D Deficiency
A study conducted in England found that those with rheumatoid disease including inflammatory joint disease, osteoporosis, unexplained myalgia and chronic lower back pain had Vitamin D levels that were 58% lower than the study's control group.
In an Italian study, it was found that 50% of those with rheumatoid disease had deficient Vitamin D levels. In another Italian study, it was found that even those who supplemented with 800 IU of Vitamin D daily, were still deficient in this wonderful substance!
Dr Pier Paolo Sainaghi of the Immuno-Rheumatology Clinic at A. Avogadro University of Eastern Piedmont in Novara, Italy, states, ""The results of our study show that daily 800-1,000 IU supplementation is not sufficient to normalize vitamin D levels in patients with rheumatologic or bone conditions,"
These studies were presented at the Annual Congress of the European League Against Rheumatism
