Low Vitamin D Levels May Not Increase Risk of Asthma, Dermatitis

Vitamin D supplementation may not show favorable effects in reducing the risk of asthma in children or adults, atopic dermatitis, or allergies according to a new study.

Some previous epidemiological studies have suggested that low vitamin D levels are associated with increased rates of asthma, atopic dermatitis–an itchy inflammation of the skin–and elevated levels of IgE, an immune molecule linked to atopic disease (allergies).?Efforts to increase vitamin D levels will probably not result in decreased risk of adult and pediatric asthma, atopic dermatitis, or elevated IgE levels.’

In the new work, researchers looked at genetic and health data on more than 100,000 individuals from previous large studies to determine whether genetic alterations that are associated with vitamin D levels predispose people to asthma, dermatitis, or high IgE levels.

The researchers found no statistically significant difference between rates of asthma (including childhood-onset asthma), atopic dermatitis,
