Prevalence of Vitamin D Insufficiency/Deficiency in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Associations with Disease Severity and Activity

Thanks Lala, seems that the news is being taken a bit more seriously by the "official" medical literature.  Only how many more years will it take to realize what an appropriate level of supplementation really is?  Guess we should appreciate that the progressive response to the scientific research is finally filtering into those who actually make recommendations and give care to people.    Louise

Thanks Lala.  I've added this to the Vit D page on Rheumatic Disease here:

It never ceases to amaze me when I read these studies.   Of course.... low Vit D, means a less than optimal immunei function, which creates an oportunistic environment for pathogens, causing all sorts of problems, including inflammationi of the joints!

Vit D deficiency does not (IMOi)  in and of itself cause RAi problems... it's what our body is harboring and the decreased immunity allows to take over.  Yes, they are not saying it "causes" RA, but rather correlates.... most reading, though, will think otherwise. 

I really don't understand why they don't take it to the "germ" level.....  I guess ABXi and germs are too simplistic.

Totally agree Jeanne.   Seems very odd...
