The risk of 44 diseases at least double with poor Vitamin D Receptor as of Oct 2019
Vitamin D Receptor Activation can be increased by any of: Resveratrol, Omega-3, Magnesium, Zinc, non-daily Vitamin D dosing, curcumin, intense exercise, etc
Note: The founder of VitaminDWiki uses 10 of the 12 known VDR activators
Note: Crohn's is 2.7X more associated with poor Receptor than low Vitamin D in the blood

Breast Cancer has learned how to deactivate the Vitamin D Receptor
Wonder if Crohn's Disease has learned the same trick?
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of Crohn's disease (CD) with vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms and serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] level.
METHODS: A total of 297 CD patients and 446 healthy controls were enrolled in our study. Four single nucleosides of VDR (Fok I, Bsm I, Apa I and Taq I) were genotyped by SNaPshot. Serum 25(OH)D levels were tested by electro-chemiluminescence immunoassay in 124 CD patients and 188 matched random controls.
By Chi-square test and Bonferroni correction, the frequencies of mutant allele (A) and mutant genotype (GA+AA) of Bsm I were significantly decreased in CD patients compared to controls [3.70%(22/594) vs 7.51%(67/892), 95% CI 0.289-0.776, P=0.002; 7.41%(22/297) vs 14.80%(66/446), 95% CI 0.277-0.765, P=0.002, respectively]. The similar results were seen for the mutant allele (C) and mutant genotype (TC+CC) of Taq I [4.21%(25/594) vs 7.62%(68/892), 95% CI 0.333-0.852, P=0.008; 8.42%(25/297) vs 14.57% (65/446), 95% CI 0.331-0.877, P=0.012]. The analyses of linkage disequilibrium (LD) and haplotype were performed by Haploview 4.2 and R software, respectively. The Bsm I, Apa I and Taq I polymorphic loci were found to be in a strong LD, and the AAC haplotype was significantly reduced in CD patients compared to controls [3.14% vs 6.46%, 95% CI 0.273-0.815, P=0.004].
The further serological analysis showed that average serum 25(OH)D level in CD patients was significantly lower than that of controls [(15.46±8.11) µg/L vs (21.64±9.45) µg/L, P<0.001].
By linear regression analysis, serum 25(OH)D levels in CD patients were negatively correlated to Crohn's disease activity index (β=-0.829, P<0.001), platelet count (β=-0.253, P<0.001) and the ratio of neutrophils (β=-0.136, P=0.005) independently, whereas positively related to erythrocyte sedimentation rate (β=0.191, P=0.001).
Furthermore, logistic regression analysis was applied for establishing the models of gene-environment interaction. In result, both the mutant genotype (CA+AA) of Apa I and vitamin D deficiency (<20 µg/L) were shown to be the independent risk factors for CD (OR = 7.580, 95% CI 2.983-19.261, P<0.001; OR=2.842, 95% CI 1.300-6.211, P=0.009, respectively). Besides, vitamin D deficiency in CD patients had multiplicative interactions with the mutant genotype (TC+CC) of Fok I, genotype (CA+AA) of Apa I and genotype (TC+CC) of Taq I, respectively (OR=0.419, 95% CI 0.194-0.906, P=0.027; OR=0.309, 95% CI 0.111-0.855, P=0.024; OR=5.841, 95% CI 1.082-31.538, P=0.040; respectively).
VDR (Bsm I, Apa I and Taq I) polymorphisms and serum 25(OH)D levels are significantly related to CD. Both the mutant genotype (CA+AA) of Apa I and vitamin D deficiency are independent risk factors of CD. The mutations of VDR (Fok I, Apa I and Taq I) and vitamin D deficiency might have a synergistic effect on CD susceptibility.
