WELCOME TO VITAMIN D CHAMATKAR
Several studies have demonstrated low serum vitamin 25 (OH) D levels in population across India. In northern India, 96% of neonates, 91% of healthy school girls, 78% of healthy hospital staff, and 84% of pregnant women were found to have hypovitaminosis D. The criteria used for defining hypovitamosis D in most of the studies was as serum 25 (OH) D level below 50 nmol/L.
A major concern is the high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency among pregnant women and children. Maternal serum 25 (OH) D levels correlated negatively with PTH levels and positively with cord blood 25 (OH) D levels. Hypovitaminosis is more prevalent in urban than rural population.
This widespread prevalence of vitamin D deficiency has a deleterious effect on bone and mineral homeostasis when peak bone mass achieved and may subsequently reflect as low mineral bone density.
• All the newborns and pregnant women should be screened for vitamin D deficiency by doing blood test for 25 (OH) D.
• School Childrens should be screened for vitamin D deficiency.
• It is advisable to fortify milk, milk products and other foods with vitamin D.
WAY TO LONG, HEALTHY, YOUNG AND ENERGETIC LIFE.
Our ancestors knew that sun is the source of energy to keep us and everything living on this planet alive. So they devised ways of worship to expose us to sunrays in many ways irrespective of caste, creed, and religion.
Elixir of Life
More than a billion people world over are vitamin d deficient. 80 to 100 % people in India are vitamin d deficient. Fortification of milk and milk products is advised in India.
Exposure to sun is to be encouraged. Maternal diet during pregnancy and breast feeding period should be specifically rich in vitamin D, 25 (OH) D should be used as a screening test for all people of all ages.
Rabindranath Tagore [ calcatta 1921]
"Early morning when the birds wake up, they do not immediately run in search for food. Their never tiring wings accept invitation of the eternal sky. The sun rays freshens their minds with natures song. This is the knock of Godly hands on our humanly minds and we get awakened."
