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 vitamin D levels (below 20 nanograms per milliliter) were given supplements with 400 international units of vitamin D and 500 milligrams of Calcium , 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 levels.

This study showed that people taking the supplements experienced a 24% reduction in their rate of vertigo compared with those not taking supplements.

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 vitamin D and calcium tablets may be effective at preventing this common, and commonly recurring, disorder.

Here is the study:
