Introduction Objective: this study aimed to investigate the association between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25 [OH] D) and cardiometabolic risk factors in Brazilian adolescents. Methods: a cross-sectional study with 220 school adolescents aged 15 to 19 years was performed in the city of João Pessoa-PB, Brazil. The variables studied were: 25 hydroxyvitamin D (25 OH), dietary intake of vitamin D, anthropometric data (body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC) and waist / height ratio (RCA…

The relationship between cardiometabolic risks and vitamin D levels with the degree of obesity
In adolescents, the number of cardiometabolic risk factors increases as the degree of obesity increases, and the determination of the severity of obesity can help to identify individuals at greater risk for higher blood pressure, impaired glucose metabolism, and lower serum vitamin D levels.
Prevalence of vitamin D status and its association with overweight or obesity in a population of Colombian children and adolescents
It is concluded that the 25-OH-D insufficiency is common in children and adolescents in Bucaramanga, Colombia, and it was associated with overweight or obesity.
Deficiency and Insufficiency of Vitamin D in Women of Childbearing Age: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
Although the magnitude of the prevalence of inadequate levels of Vitamin D is uncertain, the evidence suggests that presence of vitamin D deficiency or insufficiency in women of reproductive age can cause moderate to severe problems.
Effect of 1α,25(OH)2 Vitamin D3 in Mutant P53 Glioblastoma Cells: Involvement of Neutral Sphingomyelinase1
This is the first time 1α,25(OH)2 vitamin D3 is interrogated for the response of multiforme glioblastoma cells in dependence on the p53 mutation, and the results define neutral sphingomyelinase1 as a signaling effector.


Association of vitamin D insufficiency with adiposity and metabolic disorders in Brazilian adolescents
The results support the negative association among serum 25(OH)D levels and vitamin D intake with non-skeletal outcomes in Brazilian adolescents and Vitamin D fortification of foods and/or the use of vitamin D supplements need to be considered to raise vitamin D Intake in the adolescent population, even in a sunny country like Brazil.
Low 25(OH)D3 levels are associated with total adiposity, metabolic syndrome, and hypertension in Caucasian children and adolescents.
Low 25(OH)D(3) levels in Caucasian children are inversely related to total adiposity, MetS, and hypertension.
Vitamin D nutritional status and its relationship with metabolic changes in adolescents and adults with severe obesity.
High prevalence of deficiency and insufficiency of vitamin D were observed, associated with metabolic changes both in obese adults and adolescents, and it is necessary to develop strategies for the prevention and control of obesity and vitamin D deficiency.
Prevalence of hypovitaminosis D and associated factors in adolescent students of a capital of northeastern Brazil.
A high prevalence of hypov vitaminosis D is found in the analyzed population, especially in female adolescents, and the factors independently associated with hypovitaminosis D were found to be overweight/obese in boys and low calcium concentrations in girls.
Prevalence of Vitamin D Insufficiency in Brazilian Adolescents
The present study suggests that even in a sunny climate like Brazil the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency in adolescents is high, most likely this is due to low intakes ofitamin D in this group.
Decreased bioavailability of vitamin D in obesity.
Obese subjects had significantly lower basal 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations and higher parathyroid hormone concentrations than did age-matched control subjects and the incremental increase in vitamin D(3) was 57% lower in obese than in nonobese subjects.
Vitamin K and vitamin D status: associations with inflammatory markers in the Framingham Offspring Study.
The observation that high vitamin K status was associated with lower concentrations of inflammatory markers suggests that a possible protective role for vitamin K in inflammation merits further investigation.
Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency Among Overweight and Obese US Children
Vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent in overweight and obese children, and the particularly high prevalence in severely obese and minority children suggests that targeted screening and treatment guidance is needed.
