The Link Between Vitamin D and Neuropathic Pain

A new treatment for vitamin D?

“Our research indicates that maintaining sufficient vitamin D may help to prevent the onset of inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. However, for patients who already have rheumatoid arthritis, simply providing vitamin D might not be enough. Instead much higher doses of vitamin D may be needed, or possibly a new treatment that bypasses or corrects the vitamin D insensitivity of immune cells within the joint” said Dr Louisa Jeffery, also from the University of Birmingham.
