Effects of vitamin D supplementation on symptoms of depression in overweight and obese subjects: randomized double blind trial
Objectives.  The objective of the present study was to examine the cross‐sectional relation between serum 25‐hydoxyvitamin D [25‐(OH) D] levels and depression in overweight and obese subjects and toExpand
Neuropsychological function and symptoms in subjects with subclinical hypothyroidism and the effect of thyroxine treatment.
In subjects with SHT where the serum TSH level is in the 3.5-10.0 mIU/liter range, there are no neuropsychological dysfunction, and compared with healthy controls, there is no difference in symptoms related to hypothyroidism. Expand
Vitamin D and metabolic health with special reference to the effect of vitamin D on serum lipids.
Considering the numerous other promising vitamins and minerals that when properly tested have been disappointing, one should wait for the results of forthcoming vitamin D intervention studies before drawing conclusions on potential beneficial effects of vitamin D. Expand
The associations of age, lifestyle factors and chronic disease with testosterone in men: the Tromsø Study.
Lifestyle factors can have a direct effect on circulating levels of free endogenous sex hormones and to total levels due to the effect on SHBG levels, and smoking and coffee consumption are independent contributors to the variation of total and free testosterone and SH BG levels. Expand
No improvement in cardiovascular risk factors in overweight and obese subjects after supplementation with vitamin D3 for 1 year
No improvement in cardiovascular risk factors in overweight and obese subjects after supplementation with vitamin D3 for 1 year is found. Expand
Serum TSH is positively associated with BMI
In nonsmokers there is a positive association between serum TSH within the normal range and BMI, and in nonsmoker in the longitudinal study, there was a significant and positive association with BMI in those with serum T SH within thenormal range both in 1994 and 2001. Expand
Supplementation with cholecalciferol does not improve glycaemic control in diabetic subjects with normal serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels
It was not able to demonstrate that vitamin D supplementation had a significant effect on glucose metabolism in subjects with type 2 diabetes but without vitamin D deficiency. Expand
Tracking of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels during 14 years in a population-based study and during 12 months in an intervention study.
Tracking of serum 25(OH)D appears similar to that for blood pressure and serum lipids, and it provides some support for the use of a single 25( OH)D measurement to predict future health outcomes. Expand
Testosterone treatment in elderly men with subnormal testosterone levels improves body composition and BMD in the hip
Testosterone treatment improved body composition, but it did not reverse the unfavorable metabolic profile, and bone mineral density in the hip was significantly higher after the testosterone treatment. Expand
Neuropsychological function in relation to serum parathyroid hormone and serum 25–hydroxyvitamin D levels
A deranged calcium metabolism appears to be associated with impaired function in several tests of neuropsychological function in subjects with secondary hyperparathyroidism. Expand
