Iron, Vitamin D May Lead to Smarter, Healthier Children

I’m Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Health Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish

Many people have low amounts of iron in their blood. But pregnant women need extra iron for their own health and their baby’s health. Iron is important to the development of a baby’s brain and central nervous system. In poor countries, however, providing all pregnant women with iron supplements can be a financial issue. Some experts say giving supplements to babies after they are born is enough. Someone who disagrees is Parul Christian, a nutritionist at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Maryland. She and other scientists have been doing research in Nepal. She says their latest findings should settle any question about the value of making sure every pregnant woman receives iron supplements. Iron is a micronutrient. Micronutrients are important substances that are found in small amounts in foods. The researchers first completed a study among poor women in Nepal ten years ago. During pregnancy some of the women received supplements containing iron and another micronutrient, folic acid.Ms. Christian says that study showed the supplements could improve child survival. Now the children are older. The researchers returned to Nepal and tested their neurological development. They found improved abilities among those whose mothers had received iron and folic acid during pregnancy and for three months after. Another new study looks at levels of vitamin D in babies. It says newborns with the lowest levels were twice as likely to develop respiratory infections as those with normal levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D helps build strong bones and strengthens the body’s defenses against disease. The vitamin is commonly added to cow’s milk and also found in supplements. Vitamin D is called the sunshine vitamin. The body naturally produces it from sunlight. Carlos Camargo from Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts and other researchers did the study. It followed more than nine hundred children in New Zealand until they were five years old. Dr. Camargo said the problem of vitamin D deficiency is not limited to countries with the least sun. There are low levels of vitamin D in people living in areas where there is a lot of sun. This is because people are spending more time indoors. For VOA Special English I’m Alex Villarreal.

25 Vitamin D, Tests Ortho Surgeons Think About- Everything You Need To Know – Dr. Nabil Ebraheim

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes tests that orthopaedic surgeons should think about – 25 Vitamin D.

Follow me on twitter:

Vitamin D 25 is the most appropriate study to assess and monitor vitamin D status in the body. Vitamin D is important for proper maturation and development of bone. Vitamin D is also important in immunity and plays a role in other conditions. The main function of Vitamin D is absorption of the calcium and phosphate from the intestine. Vitamin D comes from diet, supplements, and exposure to the sun. Vitamin D is naturally found in fish. Exposure to the sun for 15 minutes will give a person about 10,000 units of Vitamin D. The average daily requirement of Vitamin D is approximately 400-800 International Units (IUs). Vitamin D gets activated metabolically in the liver and in the kidney. The activation occurs by hydroxylation. Hydroxylation to 25 Vitamin D3 occurs in the liver. The big organ takes the big number- 25, so 25(OH)-Vitamin D3. Another hydroxylation occurs in the kidneys. The small organ takes the small number-1. The result will be 1, 25 (OH)2- Vitamin D3. This is the active form of Vitamin D and works mainly on the intestines and bones. The activation of Vitamin D to 1, 25 hydroxyvitamin D is controlled by the parathyroid hormone. Any deficiency or any problem in the process of activating Vitamin D3 to its active form will lead to deficiency of Vitamin D in the body. Vitamin D deficiency is very common and the majority of people are not aware of it. In fact, Vitamin D deficiency symptoms are subtle and nonspecific. 25-hydroxyvitamin D has a long half-life and a higher concentration. This is probably easier to measure and obtain 25 hydroxyvitamin D than the active form, which is 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D. The half-life of 25-hydroxyvitamin D is 2-3 weeks. The half-life of 1,25-dihidroxyvitamin D is only 4-6 hours. The circulating levels of 25- hydroxyvitamin D is 1000x more than 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D. therefore, 25-hydroxyvitamin D test is the best study to determine the Vitamin D deficiency in the body. A low level of 25- hydroxyvitamin D could mean that a person is not getting enough exposure to the sun, is not getting enough dietary Vitamin D, or there may be a problem with absorbing Vitamin D from the intestines. The patient may be taking Dilantin, which interferes with hydroxylation of Vitamin D in the liver. A low level of 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D usually indicates kidney disease. 40% of the United States population have Vitamin D deficiency.
Symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency may include:
• Fatigue and tiredness
• Not sleeping well
• Muscle weakness
• Bone pain
• Osteoporosis/ Osteomalacia
• Fractures
Elderly patients are vulnerable to Vitamin D deficiency because they usually live indoors or in nursing homes with no sun exposure or because these patients may not eat enough food containing Vitamin D or they may not receive enough supplements. Vitamin D deficiency may impair or affect wound healing. Vitamin D deficiency may cause bone loss and places the elderly patient at risk of fractures. Deficiency may cause slow healing of fractures or nonunion of the fractures. If you find a patient with fractures that are not healing well, or a patient with fractures due to low energy trauma where you find the bone mass is inadequate (osteoporosis), this is the time to get a 25- hydroxyvitamin D blood test. The Endocrine Society defines Vitamin D deficiency as 25 Vitamin D level below 20 ng/mL, and insufficiency as the level between 21-29 ng/mL. In general, a 25 Vitamin D level greater than 30 ng/mL is probably adequate, but these numbers are controversial.
