ABU DHABI: Leading experts from across the globe will present scientific sessions to highlight benefits of early detection and prevention of Vitamin D Deficiency at the Abu Dhabi Annual International Conference on Vitamin D Deficiency and Human Health. This year’s conference will be held under the theme: “Vitamin D Deficiency from Prevention to Treatment” on Thursday and Friday.

Evidence has shown that adequate levels of Vitamin D may prevent multiple bone disorders such as rickets in children; and Osteoporosis, Osteomalacia, Osteopenia, in adults. Vitamin D deficiency is thought to be a widespread public health problem globally; being more prevalent in places with limited sun exposure and in sunny countries like UAE and the whole of Middle East.

Despite numerous studies about the association between vitamin D and different health outcomes, there are still controversies defining the adequate vitamin D status, daily intake and the potential adverse health consequences of its deficiency. To date, there are various reports signifying vitamin D deficiency impact in autoimmune processes, several cancers, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, metabolic syndrome, neurological disorders, and pregnancy complications; however conclusive evidence about a causal relationship is still missing.

The conference will focus on the latest research and clinical practice of vitamin D and its impact on human health throughout the life cycle.

The event will give participants the opportunity to meet with some of the world’s leading vitamin D experts coming from the USA, Europe, Ukraine, Serbia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, India, Kenya, UAE and other parts of the world presenting a range of scientific sessions to discuss latest trends and technological advancement in the field of Vitamin D and to encourage exchange of knowledge, experience and best practices.

The event is expected to inspire and connect leaders, decision makers, doctors, scientists, technologists, public servants and academics to enhance the awareness, quality and safety practices to understand and prevent vitamin D deficiency and how best to bring it to fruition in policy and practice for government and private sector.
