    Cancer Causes Control. 2009 Nov 15. [Epub ahead of print]
    PMID: 19916051

    Conclusions Higher levels of vitamin D may reduce progesterone and estradiol, providing a potential mechanism for reduction in breast cancer risk from increased vitamin D exposure in young women

Low vitamin D raises blood pressure in women: study | Health | Reuters - 0 views

  •  
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Younger white women with vitamin D deficiencies are about three times more likely to have high blood pressure in middle age than those with normal vitamin levels, according to a study released on Thursday.

    The study, presented at a meeting of the American Heart Association in Chicago, adds younger women to a growing list of people including men who may develop high blood pressure at least in part because of low vitamin D.

    Healthy elderly French women living at home have secondary hyperparathyroidism and high bone turnover in winter. EPIDOS Study Group.
    Chapuy MC, Schott AM, Garnero P, Hans D, Delmas PD, Meunier PJ.
    J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 1996 Mar;81(3):1129-33.
    PMID: 8772587

    These results show that vitamin D status of a French aged population in good health and living at home depends mainly on lifestyle. Like institutionalized women, old women living at home exhibit clear evidence of senile hyperparathyroidism in the winter, secondary in part to a reduced 25OHD level and associated with biological signs of increased bone turnover. The maintenance of PTH within the normal range for healthy adults by vitamin D and calcium treatment might constitute an approach for the prevention of bone loss in the entire

    Plasma 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and risk of incident hypertension among young women.
    Forman JP, Curhan GC, Taylor EN.
    Hypertension. 2008 Nov;52(5):828-32. Epub 2008 Oct 6.
    PMID: 18838623
    doi: 10.1161/HYPERTENSIONAHA.108.117630

    Women in the lowest compared with highest quartile of plasma 25(OH)D had an adjusted odds ratio for incident hypertension of 1.66 (95% CI: 1.11 to 2.48; P for trend=0.01). Compared with women with sufficient levels, those with vitamin D deficiency (<30 ng/mL; 65.7% of the study population) had a multivariable odds ratio of 1.47 (95% CI: 1.10 to 1.97). Plasma 25(OH)D levels are inversely and independently associated with the risk of developing hypertension.

    High prevalence of vitamin D deficiency despite supplementation in premenopausal women with breast cancer undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy.
    Crew KD, Shane E, Cremers S, McMahon DJ, Irani D, Hershman DL.
    J Clin Oncol. 2009 May 1;27(13):2151-6. Epub 2009 Apr 6.
    PMID: 19349547
    DOI: 10.1200/JCO.2008.19.6162

    Conclusion Vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent in women with breast cancer. The current recommended dietary allowance of vitamin D is too low to increase serum 25-OHD greater than 30 ng/mL. Optimal dosing for bone health and, possibly, improved survival has yet to be determined.
