World J Gastroenterol. 2017 Apr 14;23(14):2539-2544 Authors: Venkata KVR, Arora SS, Xie FL, Malik TA Abstract AIM: To study the association between vitamin D level and hospitalization rate in Crohn’s disease (CD) patients. METHODS: We designed a retrospective cohort study using adult patients (> 19 years) with CD followed for at least one year at our inflammatory bowel disease center. Vitamin D levels were divided into: low mean vitamin D…

Treatment of vitamin D deficiency due to Crohn’s disease with tanning bed ultraviolet B radiation.

Related Articles Treatment of vitamin D deficiency due to Crohn’s disease with tanning bed ultraviolet B radiation. Gastroenterology. 2001 Dec;121(6):1485-8 Authors: Koutkia P, Lu Z, Chen TC, Holick MF Abstract In Crohn’s disease, severe skeletal demineralization, secondary hyperparathyroidism, and muscle weakness can occur. This may be caused by impaired vitamin D absorption, resulting from extensive intestinal disease and resection of duodenum and jejunum, where vitamin D is absorbed. We report a 57-year-old woman with a long history of Crohn’s disease and short-bowel syndrome who had only 2 feet of small…

Vitamin D receptor gene polymorphism: association with Crohn’s disease susceptibility.

Related Articles Vitamin D receptor gene polymorphism: association with Crohn’s disease susceptibility. Gut. 2000 Aug;47(2):211-4 Authors: Simmons JD, Mullighan C, Welsh KI, Jewell DP Abstract BACKGROUND: The vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene represents a strong positional candidate susceptibility gene for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The VDR gene maps to a region on chromosome 12 that has been shown to be linked to IBD by genome screening techniques. It is the cellular receptor for 1,25(OH)(2) vitamin D(3) (calcitriol) which has a wide range of different regulatory effects on the immune system….
