Vit D: Role in various
diseases
-Dr. Nilesh Chandra
Objectives:
 Introduction
 Synthesis
 Actions
 Diseases
 Supplementation
Introduction
 Not strictly a vitamin.
 Only when sunlight exposure is
inadequate is a dietary source
required.
 Main function is in the regulation of
calcium absorption and homeostasis.
 Most of its actions are mediated by
way of nuclear receptors that regulate
gene expression.
Introduction
 Also has a role in regulating cell
proliferation and differentiation.
 Intakes considerably higher than are
required to maintain calcium
homeostasis reduce the risk of:
◦ Insulin resistance
◦ Obesity
◦ The metabolic syndrome
◦ Various cancers.
 Deficiency, leading to rickets in
children and osteomalacia in adults.
Vitamin D Is Synthesized in the
Skin
Vitamin D Is Activated in Liver &
Kidney
Synthesis-summary
Regulation
 Calcitriol acts to reduce its own
synthesis by:
◦ inducing the 24-hydroxylase.
◦ repressing the 1-hydroxylase in the
kidney.
 Other regulators are serum levels of:
◦ Phosphorus
◦ Calcium
◦ fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23)
◦ parathormone (PTH)
Vit. D Receptor (VDR)
 VDR: a transcription factor
 Regulates expression of upto 2000
genes, directly or indirectly.
 Membrane bound VDR postulated but
not yet proven.
Role in calcium homeostasis
 vitamin D maintains plasma calcium
concentration in three ways:
◦ it increases intestinal absorption of
calcium.
◦ it reduces excretion of calcium (by
stimulating resorption in the distal renal
tubules).
◦ it mobilizes bone mineral.
Other actions
 calcitriol is also involved in:
◦ insulin secretion.
◦ synthesis and secretion of parathyroid
and thyroid hormones.
◦ inhibition of production of interleukin by
activated T-lymphocytes and of
immunoglobulin by activated B-
lymphocytes.
◦ differentiation of monocyte precursor
cells.
◦ modulation of cell proliferation.
Normal levels
 Commonly, 25 (OH)D is measured.
Analyte Conventional
Unit
SI Unit
25(OH) D 10-65 ng/ml 25-162 nmol/L
1,25 (OH) D 15-60 pg/ml 36-144 pmol/L
Causes of Vit d deficiency
 Inadequate exposure to sunlight.
 Inadequate dietary vit D.
 Vit D malabosrption.
 Severe hepatocellular disease.
 Increased catabolism (e.g. drugs).
 Increased loss (nephrotic syndrome).
Vit D deficiency and bone morphology
 Vitamin D sufficiency leads to an
adequate calcium-phosphorus product
(Ca2+ × HPO42−) resulting in an
effective bone mineralization.
 Maternal vitamin D insufficiency during
pregnancy associated with a
significant reduction in bone mineral
acquisition in infants, persisting upto 9
years of age.
 In children, vitamin D deficiency with
25(OH)D levels <15 ng/mL causes:
◦ chondrocyte disorganization.
◦ hypertrophy at the mineralization front.
◦ skeletal mineralization defects.
This results in bone deformities and short
stature, the typical signs of vitamin D
deficiency rickets.
Vit D deficiency and bone morphology
Sister (right) and
brother (left)
ages 4 years and
6.5 years,
respectively,
demonstrating
classic knock-
knees and bow
legs, growth
retardation, and
other skeletal
deformities
 In adults low 25(OH)D and high PTH
also lead to a low serum calcium ×
phosphorus product.
 Results in osteomalacia, i.e., a
defective mineralization of the
collagen matrix .
 Causes a reduction of structural
support.
 Associated with an increased risk of
fracture.
Vit D deficiency and bone morphology
 A decrease in 25(OH)D leads to
secondary hyperparathyroidism.
 Associated with osteoclastogenesis,
which leads to:
◦ an increase in bone resorption exceeding
osteoblast-mediated bone formation.
 Can precipitate and exacerbate
osteopenia and osteoporosis in adults.
Vit D deficiency and bone morphology
Muscular health
 Vitamin D deficiency is associated with:
◦ diffuse muscle pain.
◦ muscle weakness predominantly in the
proximal muscle groups.
◦ a reduction in performance speed.
 Vitamin D supplementation lowered the
adjusted-incidence rate ratio of falls by
72% compared to those taking placebo
over 5 months.
Protective role in
carcinogenesis
 1,25(OH)2D inhibits carcinogenesis by
several mechanisms:
◦ promotes cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK)
inhibitor synthesis.
◦ influences several growth factors and their
signaling pathways including:
 insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)
 transforming growth factor β (TGFβ)
 Wnt/β-catenin
 MAP kinase 5 (MAPK5)
 nuclear factor κB (NF-kB)
Beneficial effects on cardiovascular
risk factors and cardiovascular health
 The vitamin D receptor is present in
endothelium, vascular smooth muscle, and
cardiomyocytes.
 May protect against atherosclerosis
through:
◦ The inhibition of macrophage cholesterol uptake
and foam cell formation.
◦ reduced vascular smooth muscle cell
proliferation.
◦ reduced expression of adhesion molecules in
endothelial cells.
◦ inhibition of cytokine release from lymphocytes.
Protective role in Type II DM
 vitamin D exerts various antidiabetic
effects.
 The VDR is expressed in pancreatic beta
cells and 1,25(OH)2D stimulates insulin
secretion.
 Improvement in vitamin D status also
leads to a improvement of insulin
sensitivity, mediated by upregulation of
insulin receptors.
 Vit D modulates inflammation, which is
also thought to play a role in type 2
Additional benefits
 Protective role has been found in:
◦ Autoimmune Disease:
 Multiple Sclerosis
 Type I DM
 Rheumatoid Arthritis
◦ Infections, especially:
 Tuberculosis
 Influenza
 Viral URTI
◦ Respiratory Diseases

  • 6. Vitamin D Is Activated in Liver & Kidney
  • 8. Regulation  Calcitriol acts to reduce its own synthesis by: ◦ inducing the 24-hydroxylase. ◦ repressing the 1-hydroxylase in the kidney.  Other regulators are serum levels of: ◦ Phosphorus ◦ Calcium ◦ fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23) ◦ parathormone (PTH)
  • 9. Vit. D Receptor (VDR)  VDR: a transcription factor  Regulates expression of upto 2000 genes, directly or indirectly.  Membrane bound VDR postulated but not yet proven.
  • 10. Role in calcium homeostasis  vitamin D maintains plasma calcium concentration in three ways: ◦ it increases intestinal absorption of calcium. ◦ it reduces excretion of calcium (by stimulating resorption in the distal renal tubules). ◦ it mobilizes bone mineral.
  • 11. Other actions  calcitriol is also involved in: ◦ insulin secretion. ◦ synthesis and secretion of parathyroid and thyroid hormones. ◦ inhibition of production of interleukin by activated T-lymphocytes and of immunoglobulin by activated B- lymphocytes. ◦ differentiation of monocyte precursor cells. ◦ modulation of cell proliferation.
  • 12. Normal levels  Commonly, 25 (OH)D is measured. Analyte Conventional Unit SI Unit 25(OH) D 10-65 ng/ml 25-162 nmol/L 1,25 (OH) D 15-60 pg/ml 36-144 pmol/L
  • 13. Causes of Vit d deficiency  Inadequate exposure to sunlight.  Inadequate dietary vit D.  Vit D malabosrption.  Severe hepatocellular disease.  Increased catabolism (e.g. drugs).  Increased loss (nephrotic syndrome).
  • 14. Vit D deficiency and bone morphology  Vitamin D sufficiency leads to an adequate calcium-phosphorus product (Ca2+ × HPO42−) resulting in an effective bone mineralization.  Maternal vitamin D insufficiency during pregnancy associated with a significant reduction in bone mineral acquisition in infants, persisting upto 9 years of age.
  • 15.  In children, vitamin D deficiency with 25(OH)D levels <15 ng/mL causes: ◦ chondrocyte disorganization. ◦ hypertrophy at the mineralization front. ◦ skeletal mineralization defects. This results in bone deformities and short stature, the typical signs of vitamin D deficiency rickets. Vit D deficiency and bone morphology

  • 17.  In adults low 25(OH)D and high PTH also lead to a low serum calcium × phosphorus product.  Results in osteomalacia, i.e., a defective mineralization of the collagen matrix .  Causes a reduction of structural support.  Associated with an increased risk of fracture. Vit D deficiency and bone morphology
  • 18.  A decrease in 25(OH)D leads to secondary hyperparathyroidism.  Associated with osteoclastogenesis, which leads to: ◦ an increase in bone resorption exceeding osteoblast-mediated bone formation.  Can precipitate and exacerbate osteopenia and osteoporosis in adults.

  • 19. Muscular health  Vitamin D deficiency is associated with: ◦ diffuse muscle pain. ◦ muscle weakness predominantly in the proximal muscle groups. ◦ a reduction in performance speed.  Vitamin D supplementation lowered the adjusted-incidence rate ratio of falls by 72% compared to those taking placebo over 5 months.
  • 20. Protective role in carcinogenesis  1,25(OH)2D inhibits carcinogenesis by several mechanisms: ◦ promotes cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor synthesis. ◦ influences several growth factors and their signaling pathways including:  insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1)  transforming growth factor β (TGFβ)  Wnt/β-catenin  MAP kinase 5 (MAPK5)  nuclear factor κB (NF-kB)
  • 21. Beneficial effects on cardiovascular risk factors and cardiovascular health  The vitamin D receptor is present in endothelium, vascular smooth muscle, and cardiomyocytes.  May protect against atherosclerosis through: ◦ The inhibition of macrophage cholesterol uptake and foam cell formation. ◦ reduced vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. ◦ reduced expression of adhesion molecules in endothelial cells. ◦ inhibition of cytokine release from lymphocytes.
  • 22. Protective role in Type II DM  vitamin D exerts various antidiabetic effects.  The VDR is expressed in pancreatic beta cells and 1,25(OH)2D stimulates insulin secretion.  Improvement in vitamin D status also leads to a improvement of insulin sensitivity, mediated by upregulation of insulin receptors.  Vit D modulates inflammation, which is also thought to play a role in type 2
  • 23. Additional benefits  Protective role has been found in: ◦ Autoimmune Disease:  Multiple Sclerosis  Type I DM  Rheumatoid Arthritis ◦ Infections, especially:  Tuberculosis  Influenza  Viral URTI ◦ Respiratory Diseases
