Vitami.n C lowers bloo.d pressur.e

Saturday November 15, 2008 ( -- A study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases suggests that low vitamin D levels may contribute to chronic pain among women.


The study was based on blood analyses and pain scores of about 7,000 men and women from across England, Scotland and Wales age 50 or older.


Those who smoked, who were non-drinkers or under or overweight were more likely to report chronic pain.  


Among men, the association between vitamin D and chronic pain was not significant but women with vitamin D levels between 75 and 99 mmol/L had the lowest rates of pain whereas women with less than 25 mmol/L had the highest rates, about 14 percent.


But oddly enough, those with vitamin D above 99 mmol/L seemed to have higher rates of pain, about 10 percent or higher.


The researchers did not know why there was such an association.   But they suggested that extreme vitamin D deficiency resulted in osteomalacia which is associated with bone pain.
