vitamin D regulates inflammatory processes
People with internal inflammation of the eye, a noninfectious condition called uveitis, were more likely to have low levels of vitamin D. In this review of 16 studies covering people with several forms of uveitis, doctors found consistent evidence of a link to low levels of vitamin D.
People with autoimmune diseases are also more likely to develop uveitis and to be low in vitamin D, which doctors confirmed in the findings as well.
Doctors said there is a large body of evidence showing vitamin D regulates inflammatory processes and studying vitamin D in uveitis may advance scientific understanding of treating and preventing disease.
