FALL RISK VITAMIN
One of the stupidest advice that some doctors and biologists give to their elderly patients is to "integrate" (read: TOS) VITAMIN D to prevent falls and uncertain gait.
The starting hypothesis for the studies on VITAMIN D is always the same: falls in the elderly are associated with a "deficiency" of VITAMIN D.
WHAT HAPPENS THEN IF WE “RESTORE” THE LEVELS WITH THE PILLS? AND ABOVE ALL, DO WE DO IT FOR MANY YEARS?
In this trial (randomized and controlled trial), some patients (60-84 years) were administered monthly megadoses of hormone D and others were offered a placebo.
The dose was 60.000 IU / month.
After over 4 years of hormone therapy, the group's 25OHD3 levels "VITAMIN D" they were clearly higher than the control group (and God forbid).
They were also levels that doctors and biologists "Prescribers" of VITAMIN D, they would consider "normal".
OVER 45 ng / mL!
WELL THE RESULTS WERE VERY DISAPPOINTING.
Patients with BMI (body mass index) over 25 (overweight or obese) had no benefit in preventing falls with VITAMIN D HRT ...
BUT, HEAR HEAR ...
PATIENTS WITH BMI IN THE NORM (OR PEOPLE THEORETICALLY "IN SHAPE"), HAVE MANIFESTED AN "ALARMING" RISK INCREASED WITH THE VITAMIN D TOS.
How sad that all (I mean everyone!) The long range randomized and controlled trails that see VITAMIN D as the protagonist, are giving very disappointing results ... Sometimes pejorative.
Because the diagnosis of "deficiency" is wrong and, if you want to find out why ...
My latest book which is very slowly changing the vision and the enthusiastic expectations about this extremely complex molecule and above all DANGEROUS IF ADMINISTERED EXOGENALLY.
Good day everyone.
