Abstract
Low plasma levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) are common in obesity. Plasma levels of 25OHD have been inversely associated with obesity-related comorbidities such as insulin resistance, hypertension, inflammation and metabolic syndrome. The prevalence of 25OHD has been increasing over the past few decades as a result of decreased consumption 25OHD rich diet and inadequate sun exposure. Studies reveal that prevalence of 25OHD deficiency differs among different ethnic groups in the US; high among Blacks compared to Caucasians and Hispanics. However, prevalence of metabolic syndrome is notably high among Hispanics and Caucasians compared to Blacks. This raises the question of whether there is an independent association between vitamin D deficiency and metabolic syndrome in humans. Data of animal studies reveal inverse effect of 25OHD on renin angiotensin aldosterone system that is known to play a role in the disease process of metabolic syndrome. A recent in vivo study, failed to demonstrate the role of 25OHD on pro-inflammatory factors that is typically up-regulated in individuals with metabolic syndrome. Whereas the same authors determined that in an in vitro study using a tissue culture derived from adipocytes, pro-inflammatory factors were down regulated by 25OHD. In this session, the gap between the clinical and basic science findings of 25OHD and metabolic syndrome will be discussed.
