Washington: Researchers have pointed out serious health issues after finding "epidemic" Vitamin D insufficiency that has been linked to increased body fat, decreased muscle strength and a range of disorders. A ground-breaking study, led by Dr. Richard Kremer, co-director of the Musculoskeletal Axis of the Research Institute of the MUHC, found a staggering 59 per cent of the healthy young women examined had too little Vitamin D in their blood.
The research by Dr. Kremer and co-investigator Dr. Vincente Gilsanz, head of musculoskeletal imaging at the Children`s Hospital Los Angeles of the University of Southern California, is the first to show a clear link between Vitamin D levels and the accumulation of fat in muscle tissue. The study has been published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism. ANI
