AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF CLINICAL ENDOCRINOLOGISTS AND AMERICAN COLLEGE OF ENDOCRINOLOGY CLINICAL PRACTICE GUIDELINES FOR THE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF POSTMENOPAUSAL OSTEOPOROSIS — 2016--EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Endocrine Practice: September 2016, Vol. 22, No. 9, pp. 1111-1118.
- 20X increase in vitamin D sold and 36 percent decrease in osteoporosis business in Australia – Nov 2013
Perhaps Osteoporosis groups hide vitamin D information because they fear losing their jobs
- 8X higher Osteoporosis risk if high level of vitamin A, vitamin D important too – Feb 2013
- 5X increase in hip fracture rates in 65 years - 1998 at the same time that levels of Vitamin D have been decreasing
- Osteoporosis groups hide their synthetic vitamin D recommendations behind 40 dollar paywall – May 2015
- Osteoporosis quality of life better if more than 20 ng of vitamin D – Jan 2014
Overview Osteoporosis and vitamin D contains the following summary
- FACT: Bones need Calcium (this has been known for a very long time)
- FACT: Vitamin D improves Calcium bioavailability (3X ?)
- FACT: Should not take > 750 mg of Calcium if taking lots of vitamin D (Calcium becomes too bio-available)
- FACT: Adding vitamin D via Sun, UV, or supplements increased vitamin D in the blood
- FACT: Vitamin D supplements are very low cost
- FACT: Many trials, studies. reviews, and meta-analysis agree: adding vitamin D reduces osteoporosis
- FACT: Toxic level of vitamin D is about 4X higher than the amount needed to reduce osteoporosis
- FACT: Co-factors help build bones.
- FACT: Vitamin D Receptor can restrict Vitamin D from getting to many tissues, such as bones
- It appears that to TREAT Osteoporosis:
- Calcium OR vitamin D is ok
- Calcium + vitamin D is good
- Calcium + vitamin D + other co-factors is great
- Low-cost Vitamin D Receptor activators sometimes may be helpful
- CONCLUSION: To PREVENT many diseases, including Osteoporosis, as well as TREAT Osteoporosis
- Category Osteoporosis has
- Category Bone Health has
Note: Osteoporosis causes bones to become fragile and prone to fracture
Osteoarthritis is a disease where damage occurs to the joints at the end of the bones
