The Clinical Takeaway: Vitamin D Deficiency in Practice

Description

The Clinical Takeaway: Vitamin D Deficiency in Practice

 

 

In this episode:

 

– Suspect Vitamin D deficiency in those with very dark skin, covering for religious/cultural reasons, chronic illnesses or disability restricting access to sun exposure, those who work indoors for long hours, and obesity

 

– Aim for a level of 50 ng/ml and between 60-70ng/ml at the end of summer

 

– The best form of therapy is a healthy lifestyle, getting out in the middle of the day for some sun exposure and exercise; otherwise, a modest daily dose is better than large intermittent bolus doses

 

 

Host: Dr David Lim, GP

 

 

Guest: Prof Rebecca Mason, Registered Medical Practitioner, Researcher in Vitamin D; Internationally recognised leader in the role of Vitamin D; Professor, University of Sydney
