Lower Levels Of Vitamin D Linked To More Severe MS Symptoms

October 2, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Researchers have found a link between vitamin D intake and the risk of extended disability from the autoimmune disorder multiple sclerosis (MS). The five-year, multicenter U.S. clinical trial of vitamin D supplementation among 469 MS patients found that lower levels of vitamin D were associated with more inflammation and lesions in the brain. However, the researchers cautioned that there is no evidence that taking vitamin D supplements will prevent those symptoms. Further research is needed, they said.
