Vitamin D Deficiency and Asthma

Recent study found that Vitamin D deficiency can be linked to asthma. This fact makes the populations of sunlight deficient regions more prone to this disease of the respiratory tract.
Humans primarily acquire vitamin D through their skin which synthesizes because of sunlight.

However, some food products can also be a source of this vitamin such as flesh of certain fish, cheese, egg yolk, etc.
The investigators found that vitamin D deficiency were associated with more asthma hospitalizations in the previous year, more airway hyperactivity in lung function tests, more use of anti-inflammatory asthma medications like inhaled steroids in the previous year, and higher blood levels of allergy markers.
However the investigators have not yet been able to establish any cause-effect relationship.
A chronic breathing disorder, asthma is characterized by recurrent attacks of breathlessness and wheezing.
One way to reduce severity, suggests new research from the Harvard Medical School, is to have adequate amounts of vitamin D, insufficient amounts of which appear to aggravate asthma and allergy severity. The study suggests that giving supplements to asthma patients with Vitamin D deficiency may help control symptoms better.
Clinic studies had shown that people who don’t get enough sunlight and have diets low in vitamin D are at higher risk of osteoporosis (brittle bones) and developing colon, prostate, rectal, ovarian and breast cancers.
It’s easier to make your own Vitamin D by exposing the skin to the sun. Just half an hour without sunscreen, as dark skin takes more time to make the sunshine vitamin.
