Vitamin D & Calcium Regulation: April Hormone Deep Dive

A training for herbalists & nutritionists on Apr 10 at 7 pm ET

April 10 from 7-8 pm ET

What you'll learn:

If there were vitamin Emmys, vitamin D would definitely rack up several trophies at this year's ceremony. Is the hype real, or are we all jumping on a bandwagon? In this lecture, we'll quickly review vitamin D's many roles in the human body. Next, we'll learn more about supplemental vitamin D, including what we can and cannot learn from lab tests, when and how supplementation may be appropriate, and what factors clinicians should consider when recommending higher doses - especially over prolonged periods of time. Safety considerations will be emphasized. You'll leave with a better sense of when/how/why to recommend supplemental vitamin D.

NPCE: 1 credit

A recording will be available to everyone who registers, so please sign up even if you can't attend live. Note that registration closes when the session begins. 

By the end of the session, you'll be able to: 

Understand how vitamin D is regulated and what factors affect 25(OH)D levels in the serum
Refresh your understanding of recommended serum levels and why these may not be giving us the whole story 
Identify indications for supplemental vitamin D use, including appropriate doses and dosing schedules (weekly large doses? daily small doses?) 
Address safety concerns about supplemental vitamin D in different populations, particularly those with darker skin and/or African or Asian ancestry
