Vitamin D and Kidney Stones.

This review explores the relationship between vitamin D supplementation and lithogenesis. A causal relationship has been assumed despite myriad studies demonstrating that therapeutic doses of vitamin ...

Impact of Vitamin D on Cardiac structure and function in CKD patients with hypovitaminosis D, a randomised controlled trial and meta-analysis.

Vitamin D deficiency is associated with cardiovascular events in CKD yet the impact of supplementation is controversial. Previous active vitamin D supplementation studies did not show improvement in c...

Hypercalcemia, nephrolithiasis, and hypervitaminosis D precipitated by supplementation in a susceptible individual.

Vitamin D supplementation is common among the general public. Although generally considered safe, vitamin D supplement-induced toxicity has been reported, often in association with manufacturing or la...

Four months vitamin D supplementation to vitamin D insufficient individuals does not improve muscular strength: A randomized controlled trial.

The inconsistent results on the effects of vitamin D on muscle strength reported by intervention trials may partly be explained by inclusion of vitamin D sufficient individuals. The main objective was...

The Approach to Tetanic Hypocalcemia Caused by Vitamin D Deficiency.

Recently studies have shown that over half of infants, children and teenagers may be inadequately supplemented. A high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in children has been observed worldwide, even ...

Clinical Trials [8289 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Vitamin C Supplementation Intervention

This study is to test a low-cost, simple vitamin C supplementation intervention, that is, comparing placebo to 500 mg/day vitamin C and 1 gram/day vitamin C daily to assess feasibility and...

Effects of Oral Supplementation of Arginine, Zinc and Vitamin C on Collagen Synthesis in Inguinal Hernia Patients

Collagen synthesis is depressed systemically in the immediate postoperative period. Arginine, zinc and vitamin C impact collagen synthesis. The aim of this study is to investigate the eff...

Vitamin D Supplementation and Neurocognition

This study will evaluate the effect of vitamin D supplementation on the neurocognitive function of older people with lower than normal levels of vitamin D at baseline

Vitamin D and Immunity: Photosynthesis Versus Supplementation

The optimal way to restore serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D sufficiency is currently debatable. UV irradiation through sunshine exposure promotes endogenous vitamin D synthesis, although this can...

Vitamin D Supplementation Can Improve Heart Function in Idiopathic Cardiomyopathy

Vitamin D deficiency could be a high risk for cardiovascular diseases. It has been recently reported that vitamin D deficiency is another cause of heart failure and cardiomyopathies. It w...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN B 12 in the diet, characterized by megaloblastic anemia. Since vitamin B 12 is not present in plants, humans have obtained their supply from animal products, from multivitamin supplements in the form of pills, and as additives to food preparations. A wide variety of neuropsychiatric abnormalities is also seen in vitamin B 12 deficiency and appears to be due to an undefined defect involving myelin synthesis. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p848)

A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.

The branch of anatomy that concerns the structure and function of bones.

VITAMIN B 6 refers to several PICOLINES (especially PYRIDOXINE; PYRIDOXAL; & PYRIDOXAMINE) that are efficiently converted by the body to PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE which is a coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, and aminolevulinic acid. During transamination of amino acids, pyridoxal phosphate is transiently converted into PYRIDOXAMINE phosphate. Although pyridoxine and Vitamin B 6 are still frequently used as synonyms, especially by medical researchers, this practice is erroneous and sometimes misleading (EE Snell; Ann NY Acad Sci, vol 585 pg 1, 1990). Most of vitamin B6 is eventually degraded to PYRIDOXIC ACID and excreted in the urine.

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN D in the diet, insufficient production of vitamin D in the skin, inadequate absorption of vitamin D from the diet, or abnormal conversion of vitamin D to its bioactive metabolites. It is manifested clinically as RICKETS in children and OSTEOMALACIA in adults. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1406)
