ON THE LEVEL OF VITAMIN D IN THE SELECTIVE COUGHT OF RHEUMATOLOGICAL PATIENTS OF THE CONSULTATIVE POLYCLINIC OF ZHYTOMYR
Summary. In recent years, insufficiency, and to a greater extent, vitamin D3 deficiency is a pandemic that covers most of the general population, regardless of age and sex. The role of vitamin D goes beyond the scope of preserving calcium homeostasis and the condition of bone tissue. Among its numerous effects, studies have shown that in different populations there is a relationship between low levels of vitamin D and higher activity of SLE, as well as between levels of vitamin D and activity of RA. Lowering the level of vitamin D is a risk factor for the relapse rate of RA. In the above observations, the features of vitamin D3 levels in the cohort of rheumatologic patients, as well as some comorbid conditions, which are most common in patients with rheumatologic profile, have been investigated. The results confirm the need for correction of 25(OH)D3 blood levels in these patients.
