Vitamin D plays a crucial role in neuroprotection and in the cognitive decline associated with aging, where vitamin D’s levels are related to the levels of several neurotrophic factors. The neuroprotective effect of vitD has recently been observed in the cognitive decline of aging rats, and it has been extensively studied in an animal model of multiple sclerosis (MS) and experimental allergic encephalomyelitis. The hormone prevents the onset and reversibly blocks the progression of clinical signs, but such a protective effect is absent in Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) knockout mice. Read the article

Assess if early pregnancy (≤14 weeks of gestation) 25‐hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] level is associated with risk of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). 25(OH)D concentration was measured at the first prenatal visit, and a 75‐gram oral glucose tolerance test was performed at 24–28 weeks of gestation. The results of the logistic regression showed that a low 25(OH)D level was the only factor associated with GDM. A low 25(OH)D level in early pregnancy was associated with increased risk of GDM. This finding might be useful in predicting GDM. Read the article
