is it possible that vitamin D plays a role in the pathogenesis of PD ? Maybe. Or, inversely, is it possible that PD itself predisposes/causes the hypovitaminosis through a yet unknown pathway? The jury is still out on that one too.
In the meantime, let's ALL :
1.check our levels of 25(OH)vitamin D (with a simple blood test ) AND
2.make sure we get adequate sunlight exposure for vitamin D production. 10-15 minutes at around 10.00 or 15.00 three times a week should do the trick. we may need a little more, so what's a few more minutes of sun therapy?
PS : i had my own levels checked and iit seems 'm severely deficient in Vit D. My total 25(OH)vitaminD is only 9.5ng/ml (normal values are above the level of 30ng/ml! ). On a side note, i'm 37, in the early stages of PD, plus i live in Greece, one of the most sunny countries in the world ! go figure. As far as i am concerned, i'm convinced that PD caused my Vit D deficiency and not the other way around. That's no excuse of course for not enjoying the benefits of sunshine !
