Health conditions

 "Because vitamin D is so cheap and so clearly reduces all-cause mortality, I can say this with great certainty: Vitamin D represents the single most cost-effective medical intervention in the United States."

~ Dr. Greg Plotnikoff, Medical Director, Penny George Institute for Health and Healing, Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis

The Vitamin D Council produces summaries on a wide range of health conditions.  We aim to have over 100 conditions covered by the end of 2011.

If you are interested in vitamin D and a specific health condition, then we hope the summaries in this section provide you with a reliable starting point for your search.

Each summary has been written by a subject expert and many have been reviewed by leading researchers and experts in the field.  We have tried to include all of the latest research evidence and we cite the references we have used. 

All topics have a patient-friendly summary which is aimed at grade 9 reading age, so we hope that all our site visitors are able to enjoy this section of the site.

You can browse the health conditions section by using the menu on the left-hand side of this page or by searching for a condition or disease.  If you can't find the subject you are interested in, please use the feedback form to let us know.  We may be able to commission a new summary to help answer your question!
