Sudden kidney infection in children was 9X more likely if poor Vitamin D receptor – July 2018

Sudden kidney infection = acute pyelonephritis was mentioned in the following

It is amazing that this huge increase was not mentioned in the title nor abstract

Background: Little is known about the genetic background of urinary tract infection (UTI) in children.

Methods: In this study, vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms were compared between 60 children with UTI (case group) and 60 healthy children (control group). DNA extraction, polymerase chain reaction, and the restriction fragment length polymorphism methods were used to perform the genetic analysis.

There was a significant difference between the case and control groups for VDR gene, ApaI and Bsml, polymorphisms (P < 0.05). The frequency of VDR Bb, bb, Aa, and aa genotypes, and the b and a alleles in the case group was significantly higher than that in the control group (P < 0.05). A significant difference was also found between lower UTI and acute pyelonephritis groups for the VDR Apal and Bsml genotypes (P < 0.05). There was no significant difference between children with first UTI and those with more than one UTI for VDR gene polymorphisms (P > 0.05).

This study showed that there is a significant relationship between VDR gene, Apal and Bsml, polymorphisms and UTI in children. The results indicate that these polymorphisms may play a role in pathogenesis of UTI.

PDF mentions findings from many other VDR studies, such as

Lower RTI 7 X more likely with FokI FF genotype

Vitamin D Receptor category page in VitaminDWik has the following

410 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
It appears that 30% of the population have a poor VDR (40% of the Obese )

A poor VDR increases the risk of 55 health problems  click here for details
The risk of 44 diseases at least double with poor Vitamin D Receptor as of Oct 2019

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:

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 ?,
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 in the cells
13) Sulfroaphane and perhaps sulfurVitamin 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
