OBJECTIVE The relation between vitamin D and autoimmune disorders has long been investigated regarding the important roles of this hormone in immune regulation. We evaluated 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) status in subjects with Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) and healthy controls. METHODS Group-1 included 180 euthyroid patients (123 females/57 males) with HT who were on a stable dose of L-thyroxine (LT). A total of 180 sex-, age-, and body mass index (BMI)-matched euthyroid subjects with newly…

Low vitamin D status is associated with hypothyroid Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Vitamin D insufficiency was associated with AITD and HT, especially overt hypothyroidism, and low serum vitamin D levels were independently associated with high serum TSH levels.

HASHIMOTO THYROIDITIS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY.

HT is not associated with higher rates of vitamin D deficiency relative to a control group, and the correlations between 25(OH)D levels and thyroid antibodies and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels were also tested.

Vitamin D in Hashimoto's thyroiditis and its relationship with thyroid function and inflammatory status.

The positive correlation between free T4 and vitamin D concentrations suggests that adequate levothyroxine replacement in HT would be an essential factor in maintaining vitamin D at sufficient levels.

[Hypovitaminosis D in Children with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis].

Vitamin D deficiency is more common in children with HT than healthy controls and frequency of vitamin D deficiency was 76 and 35% in HT patients and controls, respectively.

Effect of Vitamin D Therapy on Hashimoto's Thyroiditis in Children with Hypovitaminosis D

This study showed that the level of autoantibodies and thyroid volume were decreased, after VD intervention, and it is suggested that the serum VD level should be routinely checked in these patients and when observing hypovitaminosis, an appropriate treatment and prevention with VD should be carried out to avoid recurrent VD deficiency.

Vitamin D Deficiency and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis in Children and Adolescents: a Critical Vitamin D Level for This Association?

Vitamin D deficiency is associated with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis in children and adolescents and levels lower than 20 ng/mL seem to be critical.

Association among Vitamin D Deficiency with some Inflammatory Marker in Iraqi Patients with Autoimmune Thyroiditis

The present work shows a significant association between circulating 25(OH)D and HT, also IL-17, TNF-α and thyroid function, and the level of the study parameters in autoimmune thyroiditis which show significant correlation in age, BMI, vitamin D, anti TPO antibody,IL-17; and thyroidfunction.

25 Hydroxyvitamin D Deficiency and Its Relationship to Autoimmune Thyroid Disease in the Elderly

Vitamin D deficiency was significantly associated with autoimmune thyroiditis in the elderly and the screening for AT should be suggested in subjects with vitamin D deficiency.

Is vitamin D related to pathogenesis and treatment of Hashimoto's thyroiditis?

It is suggested that vitamin D deficiency may be related to pathogenesis of HT and that its supplementation could contribute to the treatment of patients with HT.

The relationship between vitamin D level and thyroid antibodies in primary hypothyroidism

Vitamin D deficiency is associated with AITD, and further studies are needed to determine its role in management of primary hypothyroidism.

Relative vitamin D insufficiency in Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Vitamin D insufficiency is associated with Hashimoto's thyroiditis and further studies are needed to determine whether vitamin D insuffediciency is a casual factor in the pathogenesis of HT or rather a consequence of the disease.

Prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and its relationship with thyroid autoimmunity in Asian Indians: a community-based survey

The relationship between 25(OH)D and TPOAb was assessed with and without controlling for age and showed significant inverse correlation (r − 0·08, P = 0·04) when adjusted for age, and the prevalence of T POAb and thyroid dysfunction were comparable between subjects stratified according to serum 25( OH)D.

Vitamin D and autoimmune thyroid diseases

Significantly low levels of vitamin D were documented in patients with AITDs that were related to the presence of anti thyroid antibodies and abnormal thyroid function tests, suggesting the involvement of vitaminD in the pathogenesis of AITds and the advisability of supplementation.

High prevalence of vitamin D deficiency, secondary hyperparathyroidism and generalized bone pain in Turkish immigrants in Germany: identification of risk factors

A strong correlation between low 25(OH)D levels and higher rates and longer duration of generalized bone and/or muscle aches and pains was observed and the monitoring of vitamin D status in Turkish immigrants is warranted and once a deficiency is identified, it should be appropriately treated.

Association of vitamin D receptor gene 3′‐variants with Hashimoto's thyroiditis in the Croatian population

It is suggested that common haplotypic variants within the VDR gene 3′‐region previously linked to VDR mRNA expression and allelic imbalance could be associated with HT in the general population, and thus, may be involved in the pathogenesis of HT.

Vitamin D Deficiency in Turkish Mothers and Their Neonates and in Women of Reproductive Age

The study has shown that in Turkey VDD is an important problem in women of reproductive age, in mothers and their neonates, and the 25(OH)D levels obtained from the cord may serve as a guide in the determination of the high risk groups.

The results suggest an important role for vitamin D in autoimmune disorders and provide a fertile and interesting area of research that may yield important new therapies.

Vitamin D status, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, and the immune system.

Vitamin D-deficient mice on low-calcium diets developed the most severe IBD, and 1,25(OH)2D3 treatment of mice onLow-cal calcium diets improved IBD symptoms, however, the best results for IBD were observed when the calcium concentration was high and 1-25( OH) 2D3 was administered.

Lack of Association of VDR Gene Polymorphisms with Thyroid Autoimmune Disorders: Familial and Case/Control Studies

A lack of association between the Vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to thyroid autoimmune diseases in Tunisian population is suggested, in agreement with data from the UK, but in conflict with studies from the Far East.
