Vitamin D Supplementation Corrects Thrombocytopenia Purpura

By Elaine Moore on 5/10/2012

In a recent published study, researchers treated a woman with idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura (ITP) and a low 25OH vitamin D level with supplemental vitamin D. The 2,000 IU vitamin D increased her platelet level. However, she stopped taking vitamin D when a neighbor told her it was toxic. After her doctors increased her vitamin D dose, her platelet level rose into the normal or reference range.

The researchers remark that evidence suggests that many of the 160 known autoimmune diseases are associated with vitamin D deficiency.
