The purpose of this Special Issue, “Vitamin D: A Global Perspective for Health”, is to publish a comprehensive volume including original data and review papers on how vitamin D could impact global health. The effect of vitamin D on metabolic bone disease, as well as other metabolic pathways and immunity, will be covered.
In addition to this known effect on bone health, increasing evidence demonstrates the close relationship between vitamin D metabolism and pathways associated with glucose and insulin metabolism. Additionally, vitamin D deficiency may have a significant impact on several conditions, causing secondary osteoporosis and fragility fractures. Finally, the role of vitamin D as a modulator of the immune system may have several interesting clinical implications.
Potential topics of interest are:
- Metabolic bone disease, secondary osteoporosis, fragility fracture: the role of hypovitaminosis D and its correction;
- Vitamin D and glucose homeostasis in healthy and diabetic subjects;
- Vitamin D and adipose tissue metabolism;
- Vitamin D and autoimmune disease.
The goal of this Special Issue is to provide the most recent and original evidence from observational, interventional, and experimental studies that investigate the impact of vitamin D on different health outcomes.
