Lunchtime Lectures – Vitamin D – Current guidance and how it may improve iron status in anaemia

With the University of Chester Running from
Last event: Tuesday 19 April at 11.30am
  • Free (drop in)
  • Storyhouse Theatre

Part of: Lunchtime Lectures

Presented by Sohail Mushtaq, who specialises in clinical sciences and nutrition.

Sohail will discuss the importance of the sunshine vitamin and the physiological role it plays not only in maintaining bone health but other but other non-skeletal functions. He will also discuss dietary sources of vitamin D and the current guidance in relation to supplementation. Sohail will then report the results of a published clinical trial carried out by his research group that demonstrated that dietary supplementation was effective in improving iron status in women with low iron stores. This is significant, as improving people’s vitamin D status could potentially be used as an additional therapy for iron-deficient or anaemic people who need to improve their iron levels.

Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects.

They take place on the third Tuesday of each month.

Our Lunchtime Lectures are videoed and archived for future viewing, by attending you give permission for us to do so – thanks!
