Background: There is some evidence for the role of vitamin D deficiency in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the pediatric population. However, the results are contradictory. Therefore, we have conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluated the effect of vitamin D on pediatric patients with IBD.

Methods: We carried out a systematic search in databases from inception until 20 January 2022. We included all relevant articles that evaluate the efficacy and safety of vitamin D on disease activity, inflammatory factors, and vitamin D and calcium levels in pediatric patients with IBD. Random effects models were used to combine the data. The main outcomes were then analyzed using weight mean difference (WMD) and respective 95% confidence interval (CI).

Results: Fifteen treatment arms met the eligibility criteria and were included. Pooled estimates indicated that intervention with vitamin D has a significantly beneficial effect on 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 [25(OH) D3] (pooled WMD of 17.662 ng/mL; CI 9.77-25.46; P < 0.001), calcium (pooled WMD of 0.17 mg/dL; CI 0.04-0.30; P = 0.009), and inflammatory factors including C-reactive protein (CRP) (pooled WMD of -6.57 mg/L; CI -11.47 to -1.67; P = 0.009) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (pooled WMD of -7.94 mm/h; CI -12.65 to -3.22; P = 0.001) levels. In addition, this effect was greater for vitamin D levels at doses greater than 2000 IU, and when follow-up duration was more than 12 weeks.

Conclusion: This study showed that vitamin D therapy can have a significant and beneficial effect on 25(OH) D3, calcium, and inflammatory factors in children and adolescents with IBD.

VitaminDWiki - Overview Gut and vitamin D contains

  • Gut problems result in reduced absorption of Vitamin D, Magnesium, etc.
  • Celiac disease has a strong genetic component.
    • Most, but not all, people with celiac disease have a gene variant.
    • An adequate level vitamin D seems to decrease the probability of getting celiac disease.
    • Celiac disease causes poor absorption of nutrients such as vitamin D.
    • Bringing the blood level of vitamin D back to normal in patients with celiac disease decreases symptoms.
    • The prevalence of celiac disease, not just its diagnosis, has increased 4X in the past 30 years, similar to the increase in Vitamin D deficiency.
  • Review in Nov 2013 found that Vitamin D helped
    Many intervention clinical trials with vitamin D for Gut problems (101 trials listed as of Sept 2019)
  • All items in category gut and vitamin D 204 items

Gut-friendly, Sublingual, injection, topical, UV, sunshine

Getting Vitamin D into your body has the following chart

Getting Vitamin D into your body also has the following
If poorly functioning gut
Bio-D-Mulsion Forte – especially made for those with poorly functioning guts, or perhaps lacking gallbladder
Sublingual – goes directly into the bloodstream
Fat-soluble Vitamins go thru the slow lymph system
   you can make your own sublingual by dissolving Vitamin D in water or use nano form
Oil: 1 drop typically contains 400 IU, 1,000 IU, or 4,000 IU, typically not taste good
Topical – goes directly into the bloodstream. Put oil on your skin, Use Aloe vera cream with Vitamin D, or make your own
Vaginal – goes directly into the bloodstream. Prescription-only?
Bio-Tech might be usefulit is also water-soluble
Vitamin D sprayed inside cheeks (buccal spray) - several studies
    and, those people with malabsorption problems had a larger response to spray
Inject Vitamin D quarterly into muscle, into vein, or perhaps into body cavity if quickly needed
Nanoparticles could be used to increase vitamin D getting to the gut – Oct 2015
Poor guts need different forms of vitamin D has the following
