Vitamin D has been in the news a lot lately. Dr. Davis, our heart disease site expert, has been discussing vitamin D's role in heart disease and seasonal increases in blood pressure levels. Now, new research presented a the American College of Rheumatology Annual Scientific Meeting shows that low vitamin D levels may cause greater knee pain and difficulty walking in those suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee.
The Annual Meeting took place in Boston, Mass from November 6-11th and our Osteoarthritis site expert, Dr. Krant, was in attendance. Keep an eye out for his upcoming blog on what took place and how it may impact the osteoarthritis community.
In the meantime, you can read more about the vitamin D-osteoarthritis of the knee research in this ScienceDaily news report.
