Low Vitamin D in infants - video interview of Dr. Holick - May 2017

Video on YouTube


A few notes of the video

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) 1 in 5,000 people
EDS results in hypermobility of joints and skin
If one parent has EDS then 50% chance that the infant will have EDS
If two parents have EDS then 75% chance in infant
No DNA test (yet) for EDS
EDS very dangerous if also have low vitamin D. Looks like broken bones due to child abuse
EDS on Wikipedia 13 types of EDS as of 2017
Best source of Calcium Milk or yogurt (especially if lactose intolerant - also TUMS)
No need to test, very low cost, just supplement
If mother minimally took prenatal Vitamins (400 IU) highly likely that both mother and infant will be deficient
Legs can be bowed out or bowed in with Rickets
Head sweating in infant is a good sign of low vitamin D
Infant can bruise easily with rickets

Appears to be discussing his Sept 2016 study

Multiple unexplained fractures in infants and child physical abuse.
J Steroid Biochem Mol Biol. 2016 Sep 15. pii: S0960-0760(16)30248-5. doi: 10.1016/j.jsbmb.2016.09.012

When an infant presents with X-rays showing multiple unexplained fractures in various stages of healing (MUFVSH), the child is usually diagnosed with child abuse based on criteria of the Academy of Pediatrics' Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect (AAPCCAAN). Almost always, the infant is subsequently removed from the home and civil or criminal proceeding commence. It may be that healing infantile rickets or other poorly understood metabolic bone disorders of infancy are responsible for these x-rays. Activated vitamin D is a seco-steroid hormone, whose mechanism of action is genetic regulation. Lack of it can result in musculoskeletal defects known as rickets. Low calcium can also cause rickets. However, it is clear that experts for the state believe that the x-rays in these cases are so definitive as to be pathognomonic for child abuse. Therefore, if the caregivers deny abusing their infants, experts following American Academy of Pediatric's Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect. guidelines are essentially claiming that x-rays showing multiple unexplained fractures in various stages of healing are lie detector tests. However, it is not widely appreciated that the gold standard for the diagnosis of rickets is a bone biopsy, not x-rays, as radiologists miss biopsy proven rickets 80% of the time; that is, 4 out of 5 infants with rickets will have normal x-rays. In this article we provide reports of two cases and their outcomes. We discuss information about healing infantile rickets and an example of common sense medical conclusions in these cases. This information could lead to a significant reduction in the number of innocent parents having their infant removed or sent to prison.

Vitamin D deficiency in patients with Ehlers–Danlos syndrome - 2024

Endocrine Abstracts (2024) 99 EP545 | DOI: 10.1530/endoabs.99.EP545

Background : Ehlers–Danlos syndrome encompasses a group of genetic conditions characterized by alterations in connective tissue structure, with the consequent increased risk of developing osteopenia, osteoporosis, and incurring fractures. Maintaining vitamin D levels within normal limits is known to play an important role in preventing these complications, which seems to be particularly important in patients with Ehlers–Danlos syndrome. The purpose of this study was to assess serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D, or 25(OH)D, levels in women with Ehlers–Danlos syndrome.

Material and methods: The study involved a prospective assessment of 30 female patients, aged 20–53 years, with hypermobile or classical Ehlers–Danlos syndrome. All patients underwent calcium and phosphorus metabolism testing and bone mineral density (BMD) scans of the femoral neck and lumbar spine. The patients were divided into two groups: those with vitamin D deficiency, defined as serum 25(OH)D levels of < 30 ng/ml (group 1, n=18) and those with normal (> 30 ng/ml) 25(OH)D levels (group 2, n=12).

Results: Eighteen patients (60%) showed vitamin 25(OH)D deficiency, with three of those (16.7%) showing secondary hyperparathyroidism. Study groups 1 and 2 showed no significant differences in terms of serum levels of calcium (2.4±0.09 mmol/l vs 2.39±0.07 mmol/l, P=0.88), phosphorus (3.51±0.7 mg/dl vs 3.42±0.51 mg/dl, P=0.86), bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (10.36±3.06 µg/l vs 8.28±1.31 µg/l, P=0.007), beta-CrossLaps (0.39±0.19 ng/ml vs 0.39±0.17 ng/ml, P=0.69), or osteocalcin (20.14±8 ng/ml vs 21.23±6.67 ng/ml, P=0.46), femoral neck BMD (0.95±0.12 g/cm2 vs 0.92±0.13 g/cm2, P=0.57), or lumbar spine BMD (0.12±0.16 g/cm2 vs 0.13±0.11 g/cm2, P=0.14).

Conclusions: Sixty percent of patients with Ehlers–Danlos syndrome showed vitamin 25(OH)D deficiency. Parameters of calcium–phosphorus metabolism in these patients were not significantly different from those in patients with normal serum vitamin 25(OH)D levels.
