Can Vitamin D Treat Pain?

8:16 am Health Care

Women with dysmenorrhea who take a single high dose of vitamin D suffer much less menstrual pain and have no need of pain medications for any reason for up to 2 months says Antonino Lasco, MD, from the Department of Internal Medicine, University of Messina, Italy. One should use cholecalciferol in these patients, especially when exhibiting low plasmatic levels of 25(OH)D [25-hydroxyvitamin D]. The study is published February 27 in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
