More crappy Vit. D research.
Dental professionals may want to consider whether their patients have adequate vitamin D levels when assessing them for caries, a new study suggests.Or not.
Vitamin D supplements were associated with a 47% reduction in risk for caries, according to a systematic review and meta-analysis published online November 9 in Nutrition Reviews.
However, the quality of the evidence amounted to ''low certainty'' by the standards of the US Preventive Services Task Force, according to the study's author, Philippe P. Hujoel, DDS, PhD, professor of oral health sciences, University of Washington, Seattle.
A substantial amount of positive Vit. D research is of this, or lower, certainty.
