Vitamin D blood test misses a lot
in Visio for 2023

  • Vitamin D from coming from tissues (vs blood) was speculated to be 50% in 2014, and by 2017 was speculated to be 90%
  • Note: Good blood test results (> 40 ng) does not mean that a good amount of Vitamin D actually gets to cells
  • A Vitamin D test in cells rather than blood was feasible (2017 personal communication)
  •    Commercially available 2019
    • However, test results would vary in each tissue due to multiple genes
  • Good clues that Vitamin D is being restricted from getting to the cells
    1) A vitamin D-related health problem runs in the family
    2) Slightly increasing Vitamin D shows benefits (even if conventional Vitamin D test shows an increase)
    3) Vitamin D Receptor test (<$30) scores are difficult to understand in 2016
    • easier to understand the VDR 23andMe test results analyzed by FoundMyFitness in 2018

24A1 Active vitamin D is pissed away more than usual


27B1 Kidney does not activate as much Vitamin D


Lung cancer is a type of malignant tumor derived from the respiratory system, which is the leading cause of cancer-associated mortality worldwide, of which ~80% of cases are attributable to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A previous study demonstrated that 1α,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1α,25(OH)2D3), derived from the vitamin D metabolic pathway contributes an antitumor effect. Aberrant expression of the essential enzyme encoding genes, Cytochrome P450 Family 27 Subfamily A Member 1 (CYP27A1), Cytochrome P450 Family 27 Subfamily B Member 1 (CYP27B1), and Cytochrome P450 Family 24 Subfamily A Member 1 (CYP24A1) may be associated with lung cancer. However, a lack of evidence exists concerning the association between CYP27A1, CYP27B1, CYP24A1 expression and NSCLC. The aim of the present study was to investigate the functions of CYP27A1, CYP27B1 and CYP24A1 expression in NSCLC. Lung cancer tissue and para-carcinoma control tissue were collected from patients with NSCLC. Reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction was applied to analyze CYP27A1, CYP27B1 and CYP24A1 mRNA expression in lung cancer tissues. An association analysis was performed between the aforementioned metabolic enzymes and patients with NSCLC age, gender, tumor node metastasis (TNM) stage, pathological type, differentiation and prognosis. CYP27B1 and CYP24A1 mRNA were upregulated in NSCLC compared with controls (P<0.05). However, no significant differences in CYP27A1 expression were observed between NSCLC and control. In addition, CYP24A1 expression was not associated with age, sex, smoking or TNM stage, but was associated with pathological type, differentiation and prognosis (P<0.05). CYP27B1 expression was significantly associated with TNM stage, differentiation, and prognosis, but not age, sex, smoking or pathological type. In conclusion, CYP27B1 and CYP24A1 may be considered as independent prognostic factors of NSCLC and may be novel therapeutic targets to assist clinical diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of the disease.
