Vitamin D Does Not Help Knee OA

February 13, 2011
Vitamin D

Vitamin D

Research presented at the American College of Rheumatology’s Annual Scientific Meeting in Atlanta shows that increasing vitamin D intake will most likely not help slow down your osteoarthritis of the knee.

The study examined looked at two groups of patients, one was given vitamin D, and the other was given a placebo.  X Rays and functional testing were performed on each patient at the beginning and end of the study.

Lead Investigator at Tufts New England Medical Center, Timothy McAlindon, said, “This study tested whether vitamin D supplementation , given over a two-year period, could influence the rate of progression of joint damage in people with knee osteoarthritis.”
