Vitamin D Council podcast 09: Dr. Craig Brown

The ninth episode of the Vitamin D Council Podcast has arrived! You can listen to all previous episodes here.

We release one episode per month, each focused on a different area of research or theme related to vitamin D.

You can download and listen to the episodes in these blog posts on our website. All episodes are also available on iTunes.

Here are the show notes for this episode:

Today, Dr. Cannell interviews Dr. Craig Brown, an ophthalmologist with an expertise in the role of vitamin D on eye health. Dr. Brown has performed over 9000 cataract operations and thousands of ophthalmic laser procedures. Dr. Brown uses laboratory and genetic testing as a foundation when providing effective prevention and treatment protocols for his patients.

In his 30+ years practicing, Dr. Brown began to notice a connection between vitamin D deficiency and the presence and severity of specific eye conditions, including dry eye, macular degeneration and cataracts. This led Dr. Brown to conduct a study evaluating the role of vitamin D status in the prevalence and severity of posterior subcapsular cataracts, a clinically common and visually debilitating form of cataracts.

In this episode, Dr. Brown provides insight into the findings of his study and discusses the current research that has linked vitamin D deficiency with several common eye conditions.

Interviewed:

Craig Brown, MD.

One Response to Vitamin D Council podcast 09: Dr. Craig Brown

  1. Four studies have found that higher level of vitamin D resulted in lower risk of cataracts. A tiny study also found that 5,000 IU daily dissolved early cataracts. Details at http://vitamindwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page_id=7160
