VITAMIN D AND HIV/AIDS~~definitely an area that would benefit from more research. I wish this would attract the interest of PhD students.
There are 3o clinical trials of vitamin D and HIV, one using 7,000 IU
There are a lot of positive indications about vitamin D and HIV
Thanks for the information. IMO-it certainly stands to reason that there would be a lot of positive indications about Vitamin D and HIV.
I am a bit dismayed that not much Vitamin D/HIV research is happening where I work.
Our in-home Vitamin D Test Kit is easy, affordable, and an accurate way to find out your Vitamin D status.
A recent study determined that lower vitamin D levels are associated with a nearly 3 times increased risk of longer menstrual cycles.
