Vitamin D Investigations

‘Your body needs vitamin D so finding out what your levels are could be life changing for you’ Not all clinics test for vitamin D and in this episode Kay investigates the importance of this vitamin in fertility and a healthy pregnancy. Not everybody is aware of the role vitamin D plays and Kay explains how our bodies process Vitamin D and its importance for those trying to conceive, listen in now to find out more. KEY TAKEAWAYS From late March to September most individuals are able to get the vitamin D they need from being outside in direct sunlight. From October to March a supplement can be necessary to ensure you have enough Vitamin D. The number of foods which are a source of vitamin D are limited but include oily fish, liver, red meat, egg yolks and fortified foods. How much vitamin D do you actually need? Babies up to 1 year - 8.5 to 10 micrograms a day 1 year upwards and adults - 10 micrograms a day Infant formula is fortified so these babies do not require a supplement until the amount formula is decreased. It’s difficult for people to get enough vitamin D through the foods they eat during Autumn and Winter. Those who do not get any or enough exposure from sunlight should take a supplement daily throughout the year. Taking too much can lead to calcium build up, resulting in hypoglycaemia which can weaken the heart and bones. How is vitamin D linked to fertility? Studies have shown that vitamin D levels can have an impact on fertility and healthy pregnancies. Some research indicates that those with normal vitamin D levels are 4 times more likely to conceive through IVF. Some clinics screen for vitamin D and if the level is low will follow protocol to bring up the level of vitamin D. Currently, the exact threshold level at which vitamin D has an impact on fertility is not known. There have been studies that have indicated taking a supplement throughout pregnancy is good for both the baby and the mother. Taking a vitamin D supplement is low risk, low cost and can have a positive effect on fertility and pregnancy. BEST MOMENTS ‘We should always aim to have women vitamin D replete when entering any treatment cycle’ ‘It’s important to understand what happens if you take too much over a long period of time’ ‘A person’s vitamin D status can affect their fertility’ ‘Some research has shown that vitamin D levels have an impact on fertility and healthy pregnancies’ VALUABLE RESOURCES IVF Before and After Podcast ABOUT THE HOST IVF Before and After was founded by Kay Dempsey.
