HDD Causes Dementia

July 14th, 2010 by DoctorZaidi

In a recent study, HDD  (Hormone D Deficiency) was found to be a significant factor in causing Dementia in old age. The study was published in the  July 12, 2010 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine. In this Italian study, investigators found that people who were deficient in vitamin D were 60% more likely to develop dementia compared to those who were not vitamin D deficient. This was a prospective, well-designed and unbiased study. By doing a rigorous mathematical analysis, researchers were able to conclude that vitamin D deficiency was the cause and not the effect in these old patients with dementia.

These findings are truly of monumental significance. Dementia is one of the most devastating diseases of the old age. At the present time, no cure or true prevention for this disease exists. Imagine, now you might be able to prevent dementia simply by taking enough vitamin D supplement.

In previous studies, Hormone D has been shown to be intimately involved in the normal functioning of the brain and nerve tissues. It even facilitates the removal of amyloid, a substance that accumulates in the brain to cause Alzheimer’s dementia. Hormone D also prevents immune damage to the brain and nerves. In this way, vitamin D plays an important role in the prevention as well as treatment of M.S.  Vitamin D also prevents the cell death of nerve tissue and may be very helpful in the prevention and treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
