Red's Vitamin D book

Red has organized his on-going look at the wide ranging impact of Vitamin Di into book form for us. His posts had grown so numerous on the subject that I didn't want them scattered and lost in the huge inventory of posts Cpnhelp has become! We will have it instantly available in a top menu link (when I get to connecting it).

Since book pages are organized so as to exclude comments (unless they have been attached from prior forums with pre-existing comments) you can note your comments here.

Happy 1st AZITHROVERSARY to me!

Ever go to the doctor and feeling like total crap? Frown I mean, you want to feel good when you go to the doctor, right?  You gotta feel real good if you can get teleported from Northern Virginia to Nashville, Tennessee in the passenger seat of the starship minivan and not remember anything, including driving further south to see a blizzard!  Apparently I had the “We’re going to miss both NFL championship games flu”.

Vit D for a Canadian from Rica

Came to a Fork in the Road - and Took it

Four years and four months is the time I have spent on the road from There to Here. I like Here lots better.

My thoughts for this - to me - momentous blog have vacillated between listing the myriad symptoms that have gone and just making my little announcement.  I decided on the latter: I am in my fourth day of no antibioticsi.  In a couple of months I will begin intermittent therapy.  At the moment I feel really good, both about the decision and physically.

For those beginning, I applaud you and say: get your Vit D levels up.  For those in the middle, I say grit your teeth and get your Vit D levels WAY up.  We don't know how much we get till we're done.  For those at the end, I say keep your Vit D levels up and thanks for the good company.

Interesting Article on Study: Vit D3, Parathyroid Levels and Risk of Falls

Here's an interesting article on a recent study.  I've read quite a bit about the potential link between low levels of Vit D3 and the risk of falls, particularly in the elderly, but I've never really read an explanation why this might occur.    

The last paragraph in the clinical context section of this article attempts to explain the link as follows:
