IS THERE A LINK BETWEEN A LOW LEVEL OF VITAMIN D AND MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS?

ABSTRACT

Multiple Sclerosis is a neurological disorder consisting in autoimmune and inflammatory manifestations. Its evolution is characterized by axonal demyelination among the central nervous system.

A growing body of evidence suggests lately that vitamin D deficiency is a very common condition in Multiple Sclerosis. On the other hand, during the last years, several studies have shown a correlation between high vitamin D serum levels and a decreased risk either for developing this illness, or preventing its evolution towards disability. Vitamin D is currently being considered an important environmental factor for this disease, therefore being widely debated whether its supplementation would actually be benefic, and if yes, what results can be expected in such a therapeutic approach.

Our brief look upon some of the latest results in the field of research for this matter is intended to synthesize what is known at this moment and what future directions would be.

Keywords: vitamin D, multiple sclerosis
