After initial screening according to the International Restless Legs Syndrome Study Group (IRLSSG)criteria, sixty patients fulfilled criteria.Patients were randomly assigned to four therapeutic groups as follows:
Group 1 (n=15): patients received one Tablet of vitamin C (200 mg) plus one capsule placebo for 8 weeks.
Group 2 (n=15): patients received one capsule of vitamin E ( 400 mg ) plus placebo for 8 weeks.
Group 3 (n=15) : patients received one capsule of vitamin E (400 mg) plus one Tablet vitamin C (200 mg) for 8 weeks.
Group 4: patients received two capsule of placebo for 8 weeks. IRLS sum score decreased progressively and significantly in all three groups receiving vitamins compared pre and post treatment with placebo group.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Vitamin D is available in two forms, vitamin D2 and vitamin D3. It has previously been assumed that these two forms maintain blood vitamin D equally. However, this may not be the case. ...
A randomized clinical trial to determine if vitamin D repletion in CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) patients with low vitamin D levels will decrease proteinuria, a marker of kidney damage.
The purpose of this study is to answer the following questions: Does vitamin D increase calcium absorption, bone mass and muscle mass and function in women past menopause who have mildly l...
Overall research aims: This study will examine the effect of vitamin D supplementation on the function of the endothelium and microcirculation of patients with chronic kidney disease and ...
The investigators want to make sure that people get the right dose of Vitamin D treatment. They will therefore investigate how skin colour, body mass index, ethnicity, vitamin D binding pr...
Treatment of vitamin D deficiency in adults requires adequate diagnosis based on the rigorous definition of the disease. Recently, it has been reported that assessment criteria for vitamin D deficienc...
Vitamin D deficiency rickets is characterized by mineralization impairment in bone and cartilage of children caused by vitamin D deficiency in the body due to limited sunlight exposure and vitamin D i...
It is well established that UK Asians typically have lower vitamin D levels than Caucasians. It is also known that vitamin D binding protein (DBP) is lower in some races than Caucasians. To investigat...
Vitamin D is well known for its role in bone health and immune regulation, playing a role in cell differentiation, proliferation, and apoptosis. Vitamin D deficiency also has been associated with vari...
The antirickets factor vitamin D exhibits its action through activation of vitamin D receptor(VDR). The active form of vitamin D, 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3[1,25(OH)2D3], is a potent VDR ligand, and c...
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)
Stress is caused by your perception of situations around you and then the reaction of your body to them. The automatic stress response to unexpected events is known as 'fight or flight'. Discovered by Walter Cannon in 1932, it is the release of h...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
