Yet another study has linked low vitamin D levels with significant health issues — in this case, poor cognition. In this latest systematic review of the literature, people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) had lower concentrations of vitamin D than those without AD, and better cognitive test results were linked to higher vitamin D concentrations.

Overall, the results provide sufficient evidence to warrant further investigation to determine whether a cause-and-effect relationship exists, said lead author Cynthia Balion, PhD, a clinical biochemist and associate professor, Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

“I think we have really good data now to make it clear that people need to do the interventional studies and see whether or not giving vitamin D helps people at higher risk for developing cognitive decline,” Dr. Balion told Medscape Medical News.

The new review was published in the September 25 issue of Neurology.
