CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Vitamin D is unique – it is a prohormone which is produced in the skin during exposure to sunlight (UVB radiation at 290-315 nm) with, usually, smaller amounts obtained from food.

Vitamin D status is reflected by the level of the circulating metabolite 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD), which is produced by hepatic hydroxylation of vitamin D coming from either skin or the gut from oral intake.

During the winter months in areas of middle-high latitude, the solar elevation remains low throughout the short daylight period and there is insufficient solar UVB to support appreciable vitamin D synthesis. For most people, dietary intake does not fully supply the body’s vitamin D needs and so vitamin D status declines during the winter.

Vitamin D is important to a number of key health outcomes in humans (and animals). We are delighted to welcome world-renowned expert Professor Susan Lanham-New to provide the latest research and policy.

This is the first in our three-part Vitamin D Update Series.

WATCH THE WEBINAR TO

GAIN CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF:
  • The definition of vitamin D and how it is metabolised by humans (and animals)
  • What the main dietary sources of vitamin D are and whether vitamin D2 and D3 are equally bioavailable
  • The differences in the current dietary recommendations for vitamin D globally and how these vitamin D intakes can be met
  • How vitamin D is important to specific health outcomes, particularly musculo-skeletal health
BE AWARE OF:
  • What the controversies are surrounding the definitions of vitamin D ‘deficiency/sufficiency’ worldwide
  • How is vitamin D measured and what are the problems with respect to vitamin D assessment
  • Those health outcomes (established and emerging) which are affected by poor vitamin D status
BE ABLE TO:
  • Understand and identify which population groups are most ‘at risk’ of vitamin D deficiency
  • Summarise the best strategies for optimising vitamin D status in individuals and groups
  • Critically review the vitamin D literature and distinguish between scientifically rigorous studies and those which (may purport) to show a link (or otherwise) between vitamin D and health outcomes

Please note, webinars are not intended to be used by non-medically qualified individuals or as a substitute for, or basis for any medical treatment.
