Final verdict on Vit D and chronic pain

Tuesday, 12 May 2015


An updated Cochrane review still finds no benefit for vitamin D in chronic pain.

The evidence addressing the use of vitamin D for chronic pain now contains more than twice as many studies and participants than were included in the original version of the review published in 2o10, noted the authors from the Pain, Palliative and Supportive Care Group. 

“Based on this evidence, a large beneficial effect of vitamin D across different chronic painful conditions is unlikely,” they concluded. 

Whether vitamin D can have beneficial effects in specific chronic painful conditions needs further investigation, they added.
