Vitamin D Supplements Don't Build Bone

Vitamin D supplements have always been recommended for older people to treat or prevent osteoporosis, with some early evidence suggesting benefits for bone health. There was reliable evidence that vitamin D does not reduce total fractures, hip fractures, or falls by 15%-a clinically meaningful threshold.

But, as the researchers of the new study reported, it's much better to take Vitamin D from natural sources than relying on supplementation.

Vitamin D helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, which are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy. The conclusion follows one of the largest reviews ever of vitamin D.

The findings add to previous research suggesting that vitamin D supplements do not prevent disease for the majority.

Silverman: David Price should not start in October anymore
They set the all-time major league record, with 267 in the regular season, so this is simply an extension of that trend. Aaron Judge helped chase David Price early by hitting a home run to a part of Fenway Park where balls rarely travel.

"So, it is too soon to suggest making changes to health recommendations on vitamin D for bone health based on this study", he said.

Researchers claim that taking supplements is only useful for high-risk groups who want to prevent health conditions such as rickets and osteomalacia.

Other scientists said, however, that there was likely to be a benefit for people low in vitamin D and that it was still worth telling them to take supplements. An analysis of older studies notes that taking either high or low doses of vitamin D supplements didn't improve bone density.

The review entitled, Effects of Vitamin D supplementation on musculoskeletal health: a systematic review, meta-analysis, and trial sequential analysis, was published yesterday in the Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology journal. "Clinical guidelines should be changed to reflect these findings", he said. Most studies included women over the age of 65. People at risk of vitamin D deficiency include those with little or no sun exposure, such as nursing home residents who are indoors all the time, or those who always cover their skin when outside, Avenell said. Furthermore, the study found no differences in the effects of higher versus lower doses of vitamin D.

Canada gains 63000 jobs in September, unemployment rate falls
Numerous jobs were found in construction, up by 28,000 in September, reversing two previous monthly declines. The agriculture sector also saw gains of about 9,000 jobs, offsetting continuous declines seen since May.

Between late March/early April to the end of September, most people can get all the vitamin D they need through sunlight and a balanced diet.

Writing in a linked Comment, J. Chris Gallagher, Creighton University Medical Centre, Omaha, USA, says: "The context for this analysis lies in the fact that many patients (and doctors) have been persuaded by various studies and social media that vitamin D is a cure-all".

For the new report, Avenell and her colleagues reviewed 81 studies, most of which dealt with vitamin D alone, not in combination with the mineral calcium.
