Manjak vitamina D u trudnoći može uzrokovati zubne kvarove i karijes mlečnih zuba, zaključak je studije prezentovane tokom skupštine Međunarodne asocijacije za stomatološka istraživanja u Torontu, Kanada.

The deficiency of Vitamin D during pregnancy can cause tooth decay problems to their children, says study presented during the general meeting of International Association of Dental Research held in Toronto, Canada.

This study was proved by researchers after they have measure the vitamin D blood levels of 206 women on the family way. It was found out that 10.5% had enough levels. Likewise in 135 infants, 21.6 % was found out to have enamel defects and 33.6% has tooth decay even in their early childhood.

With this study, it was found out further that the enamel defects in child teeth is not related to insufficiency of vitamin D while early childhood tooth decay was found out to have relation with vitamin d deficiency during pregnancy. It was also noted that an infant having enamel defect will most likely experience tooth decay during their childhood.

In the since that most recipients of this study were women from urban community, the researchers was warned to be careful in giving information that generalize the results.

This research study was funded by many organizations in Canada such as Dairy Farmers of Canada, the Dentistry Canada Fund, the Manitoba Institute of Child, thee Manitoba, the Manitoba Medical Services Foundation and the University of Manitoba.

 

The sun is the ultimate source of vitamin D. Exposure to sun (not too much) can be very beneficial in calcium absorption in the body. As we all know, calcium is essential to keep our bones and teeth healthy not only that it plays a vital role in boosting our immune system and in prevention of serous diseases such as osteoporosis, high blood pressure, cancer and autoimmune diseases.

 

Vitamin D can penetrate to an average light – skinned person within 15 minutes direct race from the sun while those who has darker-skinned person must have at least 30 minutes. However, during winter this figure is already insufficient.

Istraživači su merili nivo vitamina D u krvi kod 206 žena u trudnoći. Utvrđeno je da je samo 10,5% imalo dovoljan nivo. Testirano je i 135 dojenčadi, od čega je kod 21,6% njih otkriveno oštećenje zubne gleđi, a kod čak 33,6% propadanje zuba u ranom detinjstvu.

Utvrđeno je da oštećenja zubne gleđi nisu povezana sa nedostatkom vitamina D kod majke, ali je zato pojava karijesa mlečnih zuba povezana sa nedostatkom istog tokom trudnoće. Napomenuto je i da će deca koja imaju oštećenje zubne gleđi najverovatnije imati problema sa karijesom mlečnih zuba u ranom detinjstvu.

Budući da su većinu učesnica studije činile žene iz urbanih sredina, istraživači upozoravaju da treba biti oprezan sa bilo kakvim generalizacijama u vezi dobijenih rezultata.

Istraživanje je finansirano od strane niza organizacija u Kanadi (Dairy Farmers of Canada, Dentistry Canada Fund, Manitoba Institute of Child, Medical Services Foundation, University of Manitoba).

 

Sunce je najbolji prijatelj vitamina D. Izloženost suncu (naravno, ne previše) može biti jako korisno u apsorbciji kalcijuma u telu. Kao što to svi znamo, kalcijum je neophodan da bi održali zdravim naše kosti i zube. Ne samo da igra važnu ulogu u jačanju našeg imunološkog sistema, već je neophodan za prevenciju ozbiljnih oboljenja poput osteoporoze, povišenog krvnog pritiska, raka i autoimunih bolesti.

 

Kod osoba sa prosečno svetlom kožom vitamin D može se aktiviratinakon 15 minuta direktnog izlaganja suncu. Kod osoba sa nešto tamnijom kožom procenjuje se da je u proseku potrebno duplo više vremena, nekih tridesetak minuta. Ipak, tokom zime i to je nedovoljno.
