Vitamin D and Calcium - Study Shows - Helps Treat Vertigo
In a Korean study, they recruited more than 900 people with BPPV (a sudden
spinning sensation). Participants were divided into two groups. In the
first group, those with low
levels (below 20 nanograms per milliliter) were given supplements with 400
international units of
and 500 milligrams of
, twice daily, while those with healthier vitamin D levels (equal to or
greater than 20 ng/mL) were not given supplements.
The second group was not given supplements regardless of their vitamin D
This study showed that people taking the supplements experienced a 24%
reduction in their rate of vertigo compared with those not taking
The greatest benefit was seen in those who were more deficient in vitamin D
before the study. People whose vitamin D levels were lower than 10 ng/mL
saw a 45% reduction in vertigo recurrence, while those with vitamin D
levels of 10 to 20 ng/mL saw only a 14% reduction.
In all, 38% of people who took vitamin D/calcium experienced another
episode of vertigo, compared with 47% of those who weren't taking them.
The researches felt the results were exciting because, so far, going to the
doctor to have them perform head movements has been the main way they
treated benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. This study suggested an
inexpensive, low-risk treatment like
and calcium tablets may be effective at preventing this common, and
commonly recurring, disorder.
