Vitamin D Deficiency: Diagnosis & Management in Primary Care CPD Module

Vitamin D, often misidentified as merely a vitamin, is an essential sterol hormone with widespread effects across various organs, including the pancreas, immune system, breast, gut, and blood vessels. Its significance in health and disease is increasingly recognised, with low levels implicated in conditions such as diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease (Reference: “Vitamin D: the underappreciated D-lightful hormone that is important for skeletal and cellular health," by MF Holick, Current Opinion in Endocrinology & Diabetes, Volume 9(1), February 2002, pp 87-98).
