Evidence on the relationship between the vitamin D pathway and outcomes in melanoma is growing, although it is not always clear. We investigated the impact of measured levels of sun exposure at diagnosis on associations of vitamin D receptor gene (VDR) polymorphisms and melanoma-death in 3336 incident primary melanoma cases.

Interactions between six SNPs and a common 3’ end haplotype were significant (p<0.05). These SNPs, and a haplotype, had a statistically significant association with survival among subjects exposed to high UVB in multivariable regression models, and exerted their effect in the opposite direction among those with low UVB. SNPs rs1544410/BsmI and rs731236/TaqI remained significant after adjustment for multiple testing.

These results suggest that the association between VDR and melanoma-specific survival is modified by sun exposure around diagnosis, and require validation in an independent study. Whether the observed effects are dependent or independent of vitamin D activation, remains to be determined.

Vitamin D Receptor category has the following

463 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

See also: 44 studies in the Resveratrol category

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
- - - - - - - -
The Vitamin D Receptor is associated with many health problems

Health problems include: Autoimmune (17 studies), Breast Cancer (20 studies), Colon Cancer (12 studies), Cardiovascular (22 studies), Cognition (16 studies), Diabetes (22 studies), Hypertension (6 studies), Infant (18 studies), Lupus (6 studies), Metabolic Syndrome (3 studies), Mortality (4 studies), Multiple Sclerosis (11 studies), Obesity (15 studies), Pregnancy (22 studies), Rheumatoid Arthritis (10 studies), TB (8 studies), VIRUS (30 studies),   Click here for details
Some health problems, such as Breast Cancer and Diabetes, protect themselves by reducing VDR activation
Suspect that SAR-COV-2 also protects itself from Vitamin D

55 health problems associated with poor VDR


A poor VDR is associated with the risk of 55 health problems  click here for details
The risk of 45 diseases at least double with poor VDR as of Nov 2022  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


How to increase VDR activation


Compensate for poor VDR by increasing one or more:

IncreasingIncreases
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 ?,
etc
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 Receptor
13) Sulfroaphane and perhaps sulfurVitamin D Receptor
14)Butyrate especially gutVitamin 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
