Vitamin D Receptor category has the following

417 studies in Vitamin D Receptor category

Vitamin D tests cannot detect Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) problems
A poor VDR restricts Vitamin D from getting in the cells
It appears that 30% of the population have a poor VDR (40% of the Obese )
Several diseases protect themselves by deactivating the Vitamin D receptor.Example: Breast Cancer

A poor VDR is associated with the risk of 55 health problems  click here for details
The risk of 44 diseases at least double with poor VDR as of Oct 2019  click here for details
Some health problem, such as Breast Cancer reduce the VDR

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:

1) Vitamin D supplement
  Sun, Ultraviolet -B
Vitamin D in the blood
and thus in the cells
2) MagnesiumVitamin D in the blood
 AND in the cells
3) Omega-3 Vitamin D in the cells
4) Resveratrol Vitamin D Receptor
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 VDRVitamin D Receptor
9) BoronVitamin D Receptor ?,
10) Essential oils e.g. ginger, curcuminVitamin D Receptor
11) ProgesteroneVitamin D Receptor
12) Infrequent high concentration Vitamin D
Increases the concentration gradient
Vitamin D in the cells
13) Sulfroaphane and perhaps sulfurVitamin 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

Far healthier and stronger at age 72 due to supplements Includes 6 supplements that help the VDR

Increased risk associated with a poor Vitamin D Receptor

Evidence supporting an association of intervertebral disc degeneration (DD) with polymorphisms of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene has been controversial. We performed a meta-analysis of these studies to determine if there was substantial evidence to support such an association between the VDR polymorphisms and DD.

PubMed, Embase, and Science Direct databases were searched for studies that investigated associations of the FokI (rs2228570, rs10735810), and ApaI (rs7975253) polymorphisms of the VDR gene with DD. From the extracted genotype data from 14 publications, we estimated risk (odds ratio OR with 95% confidence intervals).

Overall associations of FokI with DD were absent (OR 0.96-1.04, p = 0.73-0.95) with heterogeneity in the dominant and codominant models (pheteroegeneity <0.10, I2 = 47-57%). Post-outlier pooled effects yielded dominant significance indicating reduced risk (OR 0.77, p = 0.01) with concomitant zero heterogeneity (I2 = 0%). ApaI effects pointed to reduced risks, with overall dominant significance (OR 0.69, p = 0.04) and Asian subgroup nonsignificance (OR 0.75-0.93, p = 0.17-0.74). In FokI, Non-Hispanic Caucasians (OR 0.77, p = 0.01) and males (OR 0.36-0.66, p = 0.001-0.04) were protected but not Hispanic Caucasians (OR 1.39-1.85, p = 0.006-0.05) and females (OR 1.72, p = 0.05). Tests of interaction between the genders highlighted female susceptibility and male protection (p = 0.001-0.005). Zero heterogeneity (I2 = 0%) is a key strength of these significant effects.

This meta-analysis confirmed the protective role of the ApaI polymorphism, however, susceptibility and protective effects of the FokI polymorphism may be ethnic and gender specific.
