New animal study suggests inflammation due to asthma does not change vitamin D levels

Both low vitamin D levels and inflammation are common in chronic lung diseases such as asthma.

In severe asthmatics, there is a high degree of inflammation but at the same time, higher vitamin D levels are related to better lung function, less airway hyperresponsiveness and improved response to glucocorticoids, a comma asthma medication. Airway hyperresponsiveness refers to oversensitive lungs, a common symptom of asthma.

    We should expect that the vitamin D levels in the blood will not drop – for mice, humans, etc. when they are getting plenty of vitamin D.
    The mice were getting 2000 IU/kg in their feed

    The experiment would probably have had drastically different results if it had been done on vitamin D deficient mice.
