Vitamin D Levels Are Frequently below Normal in Multiple Myeloma Patients

According to the study linked and excerpted below, blood levels of vitamin D3 are an important predictor of multiple myeloma.

I began supplementing with Vitamin D3 years ago. Being a survivor a multiple myeloma (incurable blood cancer) I decided that I should take Vitamin D3 daily. I supplement with Life Extension Vitamin D3 (1000mg x 2 daily).

Vitamin D Levels Are Frequently below Normal in Multiple Myeloma Patients and Are Infrequently Assessed By Their Treating Physicians

“Conclusion: Vitamin D levels are frequently low among multiple myeloma patients and, despite this, screening levels of this vitamin is not thought to be part of the routine work up by the vast majority of oncologists in the United States.”

Vitamin D Deficiencies Can Impact Myeloma Outcomes

“Most people do not think about their vitamin D intake, but Chloe Spear, BSN, RN, OCN, knows that it is important – especially for patients with myeloma.

Spear, clinical specialty coordinator in the Myeloma Program at Mount Sinai, conducted a study examining the effects that a vitamin D deficiency can have on outcomes for patients with myeloma. She hopes to turn her findings – that patients with deficiencies have poorer prognoses – into a standard-of-care for treating patients who come into the clinic with vitamin D deficiencies. Intervention would be fairly simple and straightforward: prescribing patients with oral vitamin D supplements to take daily.”
