When new people start the project, the very first thing they report is ‘ohmygoodness–I have considerably less pain’, or ‘this is the first time in years that my pain has gone away’. The effect seems to happen quickly if you are deficient to start with.
This week we are summarizing what we have learned from your data on pain and a paper where a VA medical center changed their standard of care to include vitamin D testing for patients who present with two or more areas of chronic pain. I applaud their efforts! They initiated a quality improvement initiative based on research – moving research into practice. Vitamin D DOES matter with pain.
