Information on the latest vitamin D news and research.

Find out more information on deficiency, supplementation, sun exposure, and how vitamin D relates to your health.

Dr. Cannell, I'm Diego D'Urso, I'm writing from the south of Italy. My daughter – 2,5 years old- shows autism spectrum disorders. At the moment she's following a 15 h/week ABA therapy path (since past January and without any significant improvement). I know that the autism spectrum disorders have still not a wellknown antecedent and the Litterature analyzes AS disorders reffering them to few concurrent factors; so it seems to me that each individual is or can be different from the others; this pushes me to find an alternative and complementary treatment which can be particularly suited for my little child. I would like to ask which starting bloodtest parameters are to be analyzed (e.g. at least the vitamin D blood level) and which medical protocol is to be followed in order to assess and then implement the vitamin D supplementation. Sincerely your, Diego D'Urso

    Dear Diego,
    Sometimes Dr. Cannell is very busy so it may take him a little while to respond. So please be patient and keep checking back every few days, at least, for an answer.
    Does she take any Vitamin D and how much does she weigh?
