PODIATRIST, DR. JASON MILLER STATES, "THE ROLE OF VITAMIN D IN THE BODY HAS RECENTLY BECOME A SUBJECT OF INCREASING INTEREST OWING TO ITS MANY PHYSIOLOGIC EFFECTS THROUGHOUT MULTIPLE ORGAN SYSTEMS.  INVESTIGATORS TESTED THE SERUM OF 25(OH)D, WHICH IS USED TO DETERMINE VITAMIN D STATUS IN  PATIENTS WITH CONFIRMED STRESS FRACTURES.  BY ASSESSING THE AVERAGE SERUM VITAMIN D CONCENTRATIONS OF PEOPLE WITH STRESS FRACTURES AND COMPARING THESE WITH CURRENT GUIDELINES, WE WANTED TO ENCOURAGE A DISCUSSION REGARDING WHETHER A HIGHER CONCENTRATION OF SERUM VITAMIN D SHOULD BE RECOMMENDED FOR ACTIVE INDIVIDUALS.  BASED ON OUR FINDINGS, WE RECOMMENDED A SERUM VITAMIN D LEVEL OF AT LEAST 40 NG/ML TO PROTECT AGAINST STRESS FRACTURES, ESPECIALLY FOR ACTIVE INDIVIDUALS WHO ENJOY PARTICIPATING IN HIGHER IMPACT ACTIVITIES.  THIS CORRELATES WITH AN EARLIER STUDY OF 600 FEMALE NAVY RECRUITS WHO WERE FOUND TO HAVE A TWOFOLD GREATER RISK OF STRESS FRACTURE OF THE TIBIA AND FIBULA WITH A VITAMIN D LEVEL OF LESS THAN 20 NG/ML COMPARED WITH FEMALES WITH CONCENTRATION ABOVE 40 NG/ML."

NUTRITION IS VERY IMPORTANT TO EVERYONES' HEALTH.  WE ALWAYS INSTRUCT OUR PATIENTS WHEN REQUIRED SUCH AS IN DIABETIC PATIENTS THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER CALORIC INTAKE AS WELL AS QUALITY OF FOOD INGESTED.  IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
