Background and Objective: Women living in the tropical regions, including those from North Sumatera, Indonesia, are shown to experience a vitamin D deficiency. Predisposing factors include Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms and low vitamin D intakes. The objective of this study was to assess the effect on women with a VDR gene polymorphism (TaqI and BsmI) of 28 days supplementation with 1000 IU vitamin D dayG1 on serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) and calcium. Methodalogy: The study… Expand
Effect of vitamin D3 supplementation on 25 OHD plasma levels in the presence of VDR gene polymorphisms
The presence of the BB/Bb genotype of the BsmI polymorphism and the FokI G allele caused an increase in the serum concentrations of vitamin D after supplementation, and the few studies on this subject are not unanimous in their results. Expand
Modulation of Interleukin-8 Production by Vitamin D Supplementation in Indonesian Patients with Diabetic Polyneuropathy: A Randomized Clinical Trial
Higher IL-8 levels were correlated with poorer amplitude of the sensory sural nerve and the NCV of motor tibial nerves, and Vitamin D3 improved NCSs in diabetic patients. Expand
Combination of vitamin A and D supplementation for ischemic stroke: effects on interleukin-1ß and clinical outcome.
Administration of combination of vitamin A and D supplementation can significantly increase vitamin A, vitamin D, and IL-1β serum level, and ultimately improve clinical outcome in ischemic stroke patients. Expand

Vitamin D Receptor Gene Polymorphism Among Indonesian Women in North Sumatera
Vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency was found to be common in healthy women with TaqI and BsmI single nucleotide polymorphisms in the VDR gene and a normal range for 25(OH)D serum levels was posited. Expand
Vitamin D supplementation and total mortality: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
BACKGROUND Ecological and observational studies suggest that low vitamin D status could be associated with higher mortality from life-threatening conditions including cancer, cardiovascular disease,Expand
Vitamin D status in India--its implications and remedial measures.
The vitamin D status of children is very low in both urban and rural population studied and the effect of short course of loading doses of vitamin D doesn't have a lasting effect and a maintenance dose is needed. Expand
The role of ultraviolet-B from sun exposure on vitamin D3 and parathyroid hormone level in elderly women in Indonesia
In the intervention subgroup with deficient serum levels of 25(OH)D, post-intervention levels increased markedly, but PTH levels decreased only slightly, suggesting that ultraviolet B from sun exposure for 25 minutes, 3 times a week for 6 weeks improves the vitamin D status, but not the PTH Levels.

Vitamin D status in postmenopausal women living at higher latitudes in the UK in relation to bone health, overweight, sunlight exposure and dietary vitamin D.
Diet appears to attenuate the seasonal variation of vitamin D status in early postmenopausal women at northerly latitude where quality of sunlight for production of Vitamin D is diminished. Expand
It is recommended that education regarding adequate exposure to sunlight, proper diet and fortification of selected foodstuff with vitamin D may be helpful in reducing vitamin D deficiency in this part of the world. Expand
Prevalence of Vitamin D Insufficiency and Deficiency in Morbidly Obese Patients: A Comparison with Non-Obese Controls
Increased vitamin D deficiency in obese persons cannot be explained by a difference in calcium/vitamin D intake or sunlight exposure, and these findings suggest that vitamin D deficiencies after bariatric surgery is multifactorial and in part caused by preoperativeitamin D deficiency rather than postoperative mal absorption alone.

Vitamin D status, adiposity, and lipids in black American and Caucasian children.
In black and white youth examined together, lower levels of 25(OH)D are associated with higher adiposity measures and lower HDL, and vitamin D deficiency is associated with high VAT in whites and greater SAT in blacks. Expand
