Vitamin D Levels in Children With IBD

Research has shown that children with Inflammatory Bowel Disease may have lower levels of vitamin D than healthy children, especially in the winter. Vitamin D is important for growing and maintaining healthy bones throughout life, and this is particularly important, since children with IBD frequently have low bone density. It may also be helpful in the treatment of IBD itself, because it helps reduce inflammation. Vitamin D levels are measured by the amount of 25 OHD in the bl...

Efficacy of Vitamin D Supplementation in Obese Children

Vitamin D deficiency is common in the general population in the United States, but is more common in overweight and obese children. Additionally, vitamin D levels are inversely correlated with body mass index, hypertension, inflammatory markers and insulin resistance. There are currently no clear guidelines regarding vitamin D replacement in obese but otherwise healthy children. The Endocrine Society recommends that children with vitamin D deficiency should take 2000 IU once a ...

Micronutrients and Enteric Infections in African Children

The purpose of the study is to see if giving vitamin and mineral supplements helps to protect infants and children from diarrhea, which vitamins and minerals help to improve a child's weight and growth, and if the same results occur in infants and children with HIV. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. Study participants will include 516 infants aged 4-6 months. Participants will include: (1) HIV-infected children, (2) HIV-uninfected children with HIV-infected mothers, and (3) HI...

Maternal B12 Supplementation to Improve Infant B12 Deficiency and Neurodevelopment

Vitamin B12 plays a key role in the development and normal functioning of the brain and nervous system. Unborn and new-born infants derive their vitamin B12 stores almost entirely from maternal B12 stores. As such, infants who are born to vegetarian mothers and exclusively breast fed are at a high-risk of B12 deficiency. This is because the best sources of vitamin B12 are found in animal based or fortified foods (e.g. cheese, milk and eggs). Vitamin B12 deficiency is widely rep...

Vitamin D Supplementation During Pregnancy for Prevention of Asthma in Childhood

Participants are mothers and children of the ABC (Asthma Begins in Childhood) cohort. Mothers are recruited during pregnancy and receive daily supplement with 2400 IU of Vitamin D3 or placebo from week 24 og gestation to 1 week after delivery. In addition all mothers are advised to take the recommended dose of 400 IU vit...


Vitamin D Levels and Vitamin D Education in Geriatric Patients

Vitamin D is important to maintain good health. Although it is found in foods and vitamins, many people still have low vitamin D levels. One purpose of this study is to describe vitamin D levels from patients at the University of Colorado Seniors Clinic. Another goal of the study is to find out if education by a pharmacist can increase vitamin D levels in patients who have low vitamin D levels.

Vitamin D Supplementation During Pregnancy and Bone Status in Children at Birth and at One Year of Age

Vitamin D deficiency is frequently reported in pregnant women despite recommendation of daily vitamin D supplementation of 400IU/d. Recent studies have shown that in the absence of sun exposure these doses are seldom able to achieve 25(OH)D optimal serum levels. We hypothesize that larger doses of vitamin D are needed to be supplemented to all women during pregnancy. We hypothesize that this may have advantageous effects on maternal vitamin D and bone reserve as well on offspr...

Vitamin D Levels in Stage IV Colorectal Cancer Patients

The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad, vitamin D blood levels has on stage IV colorectal cancer. Tbe doctors want to see if it is possible to increase low vitamin D levels into normal range using vitamin D supplements taken by mouth. Low vitamin D levels have been associated with worse outcomes in persons who have cancer. Low vitamin D may also cause people to have symptoms such as pain and fatigue. We want to see if increasing low vitamin D lev...

Association Between Vitamin D Receptor Polymorphism and Serum Vitamin D Levels in Children With Low-Energy Fractures

This study was designed to determine the impact of vitamin D serum levels and vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphisms on the occurrence of low energy fractures in children.

Bone and Muscle Health in Kids

Vitamin D deficiency in childhood leads to poor bone growth and muscle weakness, yet it is unknown if the amount of vitamin D a woman consumes during her pregnancy affects her child's bone and muscle development. In collaboration with researchers in Bangladesh, the investigators recently completed a study of vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy in which women were assigned to 1 of 5 groups containing vitamin D or placebo (no vitamin D). The investigators now aim to conduc...

hCAP18 Levels and Vitamin D Deficiency in Healthy Subjects

Vitamin D deficiency (low levels of vitamin D in the blood) is a common problem. A recently discovered protein, called hCAP18, likely plays an important role in the immune system and may depend on adequate levels of vitamin D. It is not known what levels of vitamin D are needed to allow the body to make this protein. Nor is it known if giving vitamin D to people who are found to be deficient will help boost levels of hCAP18. This study aims to clarify the relationship between v...

Vitamin D to Reduce Colds and Asthma Attacks in Young Children

Viral infections are the main cause of asthma attacks in preschoolers, an age group with the highest rate of emergency visits due to asthma. While high doses of inhaled or oral corticosteroids provide benefits, these have been associated with adverse outcomes. Most asthmatic children have lower blood levels of vitamin D compared to non-asthmatic children. Low vitamin D level has been linked to more frequent and more severe asthma attacks as well as with higher dose requirement...

Vitamin D Levels Following Topical Application of Vitamin D Ointment

This is a pre-post open label trial to assess the change in Vitamin D blood levels following treatment with three doses of topical Vitamin D3 in 20 subjects with existing Vitamin D deficiency.

Respiratory Outcome of Children From the FEPED Cohort

Early lung function deficits represent a significant risk factor for the evolution toward chronic obstructive pulmonary disease later in life. Prematurity and in utero tobacco smoke exposure are already known to predispose children to develop a non-reversible obstructive ventilatory defect in adulthood. The role of vitamin D status during pregnancy is less certain. In humans, low vitamin D concentrations during pregnancy are associated to an increased risk of asthma in children...

Vitamin D Supplementation in Children

Prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in children in the northern country during winter season is very high (up to 90%). Vitamin D supplementation at a dose 600 -1000 IU/d is recommended in Polish children from September till April. However, there is shortage of studies in Polish children. The aim of the study is to assess the effectiveness of vitamin D supplementation in the prevention of vitamin D deficiency in Polish children (4-10 years of age).

Optimizing Vitamin D Status in Children With Wheeze / Asthma (OPTIVIT)

Vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent in the UK. Research shows that vitamin D enhances the immune system and may help protect against chest infections that can cause wheezing illness or worsen asthma symptoms. The Department of Health recommends a dose of 10 micrograms of vitamin D/day to prevent severe vitamin D deficiency in children. However, many studies have reported that this dose is not enough to raise plasma 25(OH)D concentration to the levels most likely to prevent...

Study to Assess the Use of a Simple Lab Test to Screen for Rickets in Children

Some experts recommend that all breastfed babies receive supplemental vitamin D. The purpose of this study is to determine the rate of vitamin D use in breastfed babies, the recommendations of pediatricians regarding vitamin D, and the impact on these recommendations on parental choice of vitamin D. In addition, in preparation for a large study to see how many breastfed children who don't receive supplemental vitamin D have rickets, in this study we will determine if a simple...

Estimation of Vitamin A Stores in Children and Women in Guatemala and Relation With Potential Toxicity Markers

The goal of this study is to assess whether 3-5 years-old children who have Vitamin A intakes above the tolerable upper intake level (UL=900 ug per day) have higher total body Vitamin A stores and biomarkers of excessive vitamin A status, compared to children with Normal Vitamin A intakes (250-600 ug per day).

Feasibility of Identifying a Chinese Study Population and Eligible Pediatric Cancer Cases, and Linking the Two Groups to Assess the Role of Periconceptional Folic Acid Supplements in Risk of Pediatric Cancer.

Background: - Pregnant women are encouraged to take the vitamin folate. It helps prevent some birth defects. Children of mothers who take it also have less risk of some cancers. Between 1993 and 1995, some women in China took the vitamin daily before and during early pregnancy. Another group did not. This study will follow up on children born to both sets of women. (The children were born between 1994 and 1996.) Researchers will use these data to study the link between f...

Vitamin D3 Supplementation for AlloHSCT-RCT

This study is to assess whether a single oral loading dose of 100,000 IU vitamin D3 prior to allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (aHSCT) can achieve optimal 25 hydroxy-vitamin D3(25-OH-D3) levels (>75nmol/L) at one month post aHSCT, and maintain adequate levels for at least three months, compared to our standard practice of 2000 IU vitamin D3 daily. 25-OH-D3 levels will be measured prior to vitamin D3 supplementation, and 30 as well as 100 days post vitamin D suppleme...

The Effect of Vitamin D Supplements on Vitamin D Status, Cardiometabolic Health and Immune Defense in Danish Children
