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.
