Multiple Myeloma Bone Health- Vitamin D3 as Therapy

Share Button

“…the present study highlights a widespread and alarming rate of vitamin D deficiency in patients with metastatic bone disease and multiple myeloma…”

According to the study linked and excerpted below, blood levels of vitamin D3 are an important predictor of multiple myeloma. My experience and research indicates that vitamin D3 supplementation is an important multiple myeloma bone health therapy as well.

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.”

Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency in Patients with Bone Metastases and Multiple Myeloma

“We found a widespread and alarming rate of vitamin D deficiency in patients with metastatic bone disease and multiple myeloma. Of note, patients with bone metastases due to breast cancer, prostate cancer and multiple myeloma rarely reached sufficient serum 25-OH-D levels.

Conclusion: It is of utmost clinical importance to assess vitamin D levels in cancer patients, especially in those with, or at high risk of developing metastatic bone disease…

In summary, the present study highlights a widespread and alarming rate of vitamin D deficiency in patients with metastatic bone disease and multiple myeloma.

Of note, patients with bone metastases due to breast cancer, prostate cancer and multiple myeloma rarely reached sufficient serum 25-OH-D levels and yet vitamin D deficiency often goes unrecognised and therefore remains untreated. Hence, it is of utmost clinical importance to assess vitamin D levels in cancer patients, especially those with, or at high risk of developing metastatic bone disease.

“Vitamin D3 (1000mg x 2 daily)” but the LE product you link to states “Contains 125 mcg (5000 IU) of vitamin D3”

So do you actually take 2000 IU daily? That would be 50 mcg.

Thank you.
