TradeHyd.com Health in association with Foundation Healthy Smiles is organizing a National Seminar on Vitamin D: Deficiency, Nutrition and Human Health on November 02, 2017 at 9.00 am at FTAPCCI, Red Hills, Hyderabad.
Vitamin D is an essential nutrient, well known for its role in skeletal health. It may prevent many bone disorders, such as rickets and osteomalacia in children, in adult’s osteoporosis and osteopenia. Vitamin D deficiency is thought to be a widespread, global public health problem.
Vitamin D insufficiency is recognized as a “silent” disease worldwide and its prevalence seems equally pervasive among apparently healthy populations of both developed and developing countries.
Epidemiological studies have shown the association of chronic vitamin D insufficiency with several non-skeletal disorders like type 2 diabetes mellitus, multiple sclerosis, non-specific myalgias, impaired muscle function and cancers.
Optimal vitamin D status during Infancy and childhood has the potential to maximize peak bone mass and reduce the risk for osteoporosis and non-skeletal disorders associated with vitamin D insufficiency in later life.
Though Vitamin D deficiency is a major medical problem among school aged-children and elderly throughout the world there is no consensus regarding definition of vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency. There is paucity of data regarding the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency / deficiency from India.
This seminar is aimed to:
? Provide an update on the multiple potential health benefits of vitamin D
? Update on status of vitamin D among populations in India
? Provide an overview of current understanding of the physiological role of vitamin D in human nutrition across the life cycle
? Examine the role and importance of sources of vitamin D – sunlight vs food vs fortification vs supplementation
? Update on issues related to assessment of vitamin D status and discuss the development of recommended intakes for vitamin D
? Defining optimal vitamin D status, vitamin D insufficiency / deficiency
? Recommendation for optimal Vitamin D intakes at various age groups
? Recommend appropriate public health measures and evolving strategies to prevent vitamin D deficiency in India
The seminar is more useful for Parents, Women, Educationists, School Managements, Scientists, Medical Students, Doctors, Professionals and Healthcare products manufacturers etc.
