Now, the first study I'll cover examined the effect of combined calcium and vitamin D3 supplementationon (or placebo) on bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). BMD was measured at baseline, 12 and 24 months.
Those taking the supplements had increased vitamin D levels from baseline. Analysis demonstrated an overall treatment effect on BMD, with the those taking the supplements showing a lower rate of BMD loss when compared to the placebo group. Results suggest that combined calcium and vitamin D3 supplementation may be effective in reducing rate of BMD loss in women with moderate CKD.
The second study was also examining calcium and D3 supplementation, but this time on symptoms in infertile women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).In this case control study, 100 infertile PCOS women were randomly divided into two groups. Group I was treated with 1500 mg/day metformin (a drug to help control blood sugar), and Group II treated with 1500 mg/day of metformin plus calcium (1000 mg/day) and Vitamin D (100000 IU/month) for 6 months.
In the end, this study showed positive effects of calcium & vitamin D supplementation on weight loss, follicle maturation, menstrual regularity, and improvement of hyperandrogenism, in infertile women with PCOS.
