Received Date: Oct 07, 2021 / Accepted Date: Oct 21, 2021 / Published Date: Oct 30, 2021
Vitamin D (VIT D) is involved in maintaining Ca2+ homeostasis in the endolymph playing a primary role in synthesis of otoconia made up of calcium carbonate. VIT D deficiency which has been associated with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), results in an abnormal morphological structure of otoconia and subsequent otolith dysfunction. Although the association between VIT D deficiency and recurrence of BPPV was indefinite, many studies indicated that VIT D supplementation was beneficial for BPPV.
