Beneficial Vitamin for Obese Children
Vitamins are vital for kid’s growth and health. We should be familiar with the role of vitamin D, which facilitates the growth of bones and teeth. Recently, there are studies discovered that certain other benefits might also be associated with vitamin D. Children who have taken sufficient vitamin D will have lower plasma total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level. According to the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, there is a relation between serum vitamin D levels and plasma cholesterol levels in primary school children, researched by the University of Eastern Finland. The research was conducted on a total of 512 children aged 6 to 8 years. 25-hydroxyvitamin D is the major circulating form of vitamin D. The study showed that children whose serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels higher than 50nmol/l, which is considered as the threshold value for vitamin D sufficiency, had lower plasma total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level than children whose had lower serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels. On the other hand, simple vitamin D supplementation may reduce the risk of overweight and obese children developing serious heart and metabolic complications in later life, according to the research presented at the 57th Annual European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology Meeting. This research was conducted by Dr. Christos Giannios, Professor Evangelia Charmandari and colleagues at the University of Athens Medical School and the ‘Aghia Sophia’ Children’s Hospital in Athens. In this research, 232 obese children and adolescents were assessed over 12 months. 117 of them were assigned to receive vitamin D supplementation, in accordance with the Endocrine Society’s guidelines on the treatment and prevention of deficiency. Levels of vitamin D, body fat and blood markers of liver function and heart health were measured at the start of the study and 12 months later. Consequently, children who were given 12 months of vitamin D supplementation had significantly lower body mass index, body fat and improved cholesterol levels.
