John Campbell. Higher vitamin D reduces risk of death in prostate cancer
For those with prostate cancer

“This is along with standard

-everyone with prostate cancer
should titrate vitamin D up
-vitamin D doses are cheap
-large scale trials not being done
“Higher vitamin D could reduce
risk of death for prostate
-measured 25 OHD–activated
vitamin D in blood
-7 studies: [7800 patients] -each 20 nmol/L [8 ng/mL] increase vit D
=9% DECREASE IN DEATH
-significant at p=0.002
HR .91 [91% risk vs non-vit D]
This was all-cause mortality

“For each 20  increase in D
9% less likely to die.
If 40 , then 18% less likely”
Upper and lower lines were
levels of vitamin D
Middle lines were combined
