Webinar: Vitamin D – More Than Just Sunlight

*Please note, we have now changed this talk to a webinar - We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' closer to the time.*


Following on from her hugely popular talk last year on gut health, we are delighted to welcome back Dr Ese Stacey, Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine.


She has designed this evening lecture to discuss the importance of nutrition in MSK health, specifically on the importance of Vitamin D – who needs it, why, and how to ensure you are getting enough.


Vitamin D has been proven to play a role in muscle function and the immune system. It is therefore important for all-round health to ensure that we are getting enough – and yet Vitamin D deficiency is very common in the UK. Some estimates say that around 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 6 children do not get enough Vitamin D.


In this 2-hour evening lecture, Dr Stacey will discuss and clarify several hot topics in this area, including:

  • Can Vitamin D help lower my cholesterol?
  • The link between statins and Vitamin D
  • How age relates to Vitamin D production
  • Can Vitamin D help prevent some cancers?
  • Can Vitamin D help treat diabetes, high blood pressure and MS?
  • Is there a relationship between Vitamin D and childhood UTIs?
  • Medical conditions and other factors that can lead to Vitamin D deficiency
  • Supplements and their role


Dr Stacey is a Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine who is especially interested in how your environment affects musculoskeletal health, performance and wellbeing. She has found that musculoskeletal conditions that do not respond to conventional treatment are often linked to poor gut health and increased levels of environmental toxins. She has a wealth of experience in this area and is interested in helping patients understand the importance of food and nutrition in all aspects of health.


Dr Stacey introduces her topic

Agenda

  • The role of Vitamin D in MSK health
  • The relationship between Vitamin D and other medical conditions
  • Who is at risk of low Vitamin D
  • How to get enough Vitamin D
