Objective: Growing evidence has shown that vitamin D deficiency can cause lower bone mineral density (BMD) and an increased risk of osteoporosis. Vitamin D receptor (VDR) BsmI polymorphism (rs1544410) can affect BMD variation and circulating osteocalcin levels. To date, a wide range of epidemiological studies have been carried out to evaluate the association between VDR BsmI polymorphism and susceptibility to osteoporosis. Conflicting results, however, were obtained. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of VDR BsmI polymorphism on osteoporosis risk using a meta-analysis.
Methods: Twenty-six publications were identified by searching PubMed and Embase databases. The association between VDR BsmI polymorphism and osteoporosis was estimated by calculating pooled odds ratios (ORs) with corresponding 95% confidence intervals (Cis).
Results: The bb genotype was associated with a significantly decreased risk of osteoporosis in overall comparison (
- bb vs. BB: OR=0.61, 95% CI, 0.40–0.92;
- bb vs. BB/Bb: OR=0.70, 95% CI, 0.52–0.95, respectively).
Subgroup analyses showed that the bb genotype had a decreased risk of developing osteoporosis in
- postmenopausal women (bb vs. BB/Bb: OR=0.68, 95% CI, 0.46–0.98) and
- Africans (Bb/bb vs. BB: OR=0.18, 95% CI, 0.09–0.37).
Conclusion: The VDR BsmI polymorphism may have a protective role against the development of osteoporosis.

Vitamin D Receptor category has the following
469 studies in Vitamin D Receptor category
Vitamin D tests cannot detect Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) problemsSee also:
A poor VDR restricts Vitamin D from getting in the cells
44 studies in the Resveratrol category
It appears that 30% of the population have a poor VDR (40% of the Obese )Health problems include: Autoimmune (
Several diseases protect themselves by deactivating the Vitamin D receptor.Example: Breast Cancer

The Vitamin D Receptor is associated with many health problems
17 studies), Breast Cancer ( 20 studies), Colon Cancer ( 13 studies), Cardiovascular ( 22 studies), Cognition ( 16 studies), Diabetes ( 22 studies), Hypertension ( 7 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
A poor VDR is associated with the risk of 55 health problems click here for details
The risk of 48 diseases at least double with poor VDR as of Jan 2023 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:
Increasing Increases 1) Vitamin D supplement Sun
Vitamin D in the blood
and thus in the cells
2) Magnesium Vitamin 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
Vitamin D Receptor 7) Quercetin (flavonoid) Vitamin D Receptor 8) Zinc is in the VDR Vitamin D Receptor 9) Boron Vitamin D Receptor ?,
10) Essential oils e.g. ginger, curcumin Vitamin D Receptor 11) Progesterone Vitamin D Receptor 12) Infrequent high concentration Vitamin D
Increases the concentration gradient
Vitamin D Receptor 13) Sulfroaphane and perhaps sulfur Vitamin D Receptor 14)Butyrate especially gut Vitamin 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
