New Delhi, Jun 09 (ANI): High vitamin D levels are linked to lower cholesterol in children, according to a study The researchers found that the link between higher serum vitamin D levels and lower plasma cholesterol levels was independent of body adiposity, dietary factors, physical activity, parental education, and day length prior to blood sampling. Moreover, hereditary factors that have previously been linked to serum vitamin D levels did not modify the observed association. More research is needed to uncover the reasons behind the inverse association of serum vitamin D with plasma lipid levels. The new findings provide support for the importance of following recommendations for vitamin D intake. The findings were reported in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism
