From Cerebral Small Vessel Disease: What to Know & What to Do 2018?
It appears that cerebral small vessel disease can increase

  • White portions of MRI (poor blood flow) aka White matter hyperintensities
    • Note: Multiple Sclerosis shows up as increased white matter on MRIs
  • Cognitive decline
  • Problems with walking or balance
  • Strokes
  • Vascular dementia.

Note: Poor Vitamin D Receptors result in less Vitamin D getting to cells,
   but DOES NOT reduce the Vitamin D levels in the blood

Vitamin D tests cannot detect Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) problems
A poor VDR restricts Vitamin D from getting in the cells

A poor VDR increases the risk of 45 health problems  click here for details

VDR at-home test $29 - results not easily understood in 2016
There are hints that you may have inherited a poor VDR

Compensate for poor VDR by increasing one or more:

IncreasingIncreases
1) Vitamin D supplement
  Sun, Ultraviolet -B
Vitamin D in the blood
and thus to the cells
2) MagnesiumVitamin D in the blood
 AND to the cells
3) Omega-3 Vitamin D to the cells
4) Resveratrol Vitamin D to the cells
5) Intense exercise Vitamin D Receptor
6) Get prescription for VDR activator
   paricalcitol, maxacalcitol?
Vitamin D Receptor
7) Quercetin (flavonoid) Vitamin D Receptor
8) Zinc is in the VDR
Costs less than 1 cent per day
Vitamin D Receptor

Note: If you are not feeling enough benefit from Vitamin D, you might try increasing VDR activation
You might feel the benefit within days of adding one or more of the above


Highlights

  • Vitamin D acting through VDR plays a crucial role in vascular health.
  • VDR FokI “f” allele increases risk of cerebral SVD by 1.5-fold in men.
  • Serum vitamin D is significantly lower in subjects with FokI “ff” genotype.
  • FokI “ff” increases risk of SVD by 2.5-fold in subjects with low serum vitamin D
  • ApaI polymorphism confers protection against SVD in women.

Vitamin D receptor (VDR) and its ligand Vitamin D, play a crucial role in regulating multiple pathways for maintaining vascular health. The present study aimed at evaluating whether single nucleotide polymorphisms in VDR gene were associated with susceptibility to vascular dementia (VaD) due to cerebral small vessel disease (SVD). A total of 644 subjects (302 patients diagnosed with cerebral SVD-associated VaD and 342, age- and gender-matched healthy controls) were genotyped for VDR gene variants, FokI, ApaI, TaqI and BsmI, by PCR-RFLP method. Among the 4 examined VDR variants, the presence of the minor allele (Ff+ff vs FF) of FokI variant increased the risk for cerebral SVD by 1.5-fold in men (p = 0.047). Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] was lower in subjects having the FokI “ff” genotype compared to those with the “FF” genotype (p = 0.044). Moreover, in subjects with low serum 25(OH)D the presence of “ff” genotype increased the odds of SVD by 2.5 folds (p = 0.041). ApaI polymorphism decreased the risk of cerebral SVD in women. The distribution of TaqI and BsmI variants were not significantly different between patients and controls. Further studies in large cohorts are necessary to validate the role of FokI polymorphism in cerebral SVD and VaD etiopathogenesis.
