Time: 2:00 pm - 2:20 pm
Date: 29 April 2020
Vitamin D is perhaps more correctly thought of as a hormone. It remains an extremely popular subject of clinical trials globally. However, governmental intake recommendations are based on the avoidance of severe deficiency and the onset of symptoms such as rickets. They also often fail to take into account the exposure of the skin of their populations to sunlight throughout the year. To have a benefit in many pathologies, much higher doses of Vitamin D are required. This paper will review the current use of adjunctive therapies untilising high dose Vitamin D.
