The study will assess if administration of high-dose vitamin D and a commonly used prebiotic (inulin) is effective to reduce gastrointestinal dysbiosis and to improve critical intestinal functions in Cystic Fibrosis with the additive or synergistic effects of the combination of vitamin D + inulin.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-shortening genetic condition among Caucasians in the United States. Individuals with CF have an altered gastrointestinal (GI) microbiota, which may be a result of chronic systemic inflammation and infection, frequent use of antibiotics, and/or medically prescribed and habitual high-fat/high-calorie diets.
The study will assess if administration of high-dose vitamin D and a commonly used prebiotic (inulin) is effective to reduce gastrointestinal dysbiosis and to improve critical intestinal functions in Cystic Fibrosis.

Vitamin D possesses anti-inflammatory properties and could be beneficial in ulcerative colitis (UC).
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.
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)
OXIDOREDUCTASES which mediate vitamin K metabolism by converting inactive vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to active vitamin K.
A family of phylloquinones that contains a ring of 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone and an isoprenoid side chain. Members of this group of vitamin K 1 have only one double bond on the proximal isoprene unit. Rich sources of vitamin K 1 include green plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria. Vitamin K1 has antihemorrhagic and prothrombogenic activity.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN E in the diet, characterized by posterior column and spinocerebellar tract abnormalities, areflexia, ophthalmoplegia, and disturbances of gait, proprioception, and vibration. In premature infants vitamin E deficiency is associated with hemolytic anemia, thrombocytosis, edema, intraventricular hemorrhage, and increasing risk of retrolental fibroplasia and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. An apparent inborn error of vitamin E metabolism, named familial isolated vitamin E deficiency, has recently been identified. (Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1181)
