Myasthenia Gravis Remission with Vitamin D
Today we’re going to talk about an interesting case study that was done by a Brazilian doctor working with a patient who had myasthenia gravis.
Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease is where you have what they call autoantibodies that are against your own tissues. This particular autoimmune disease attacks the connection between your nerves and your muscles. This creates a lot of muscle problems.
One of the treatments commonly used for this condition is steroids. But, unfortunately, there are a lot of side effects when you take steroids.
This doctor used between 80,000 and 120,000 IUs of vitamin D3 and was able to put this patient’s symptoms in remission.
Vitamin D is hormone-like and acts as a steroid without the side-effects. It also supports the T regulatory cells, which is a part of the immune system that helps prevent autoimmune diseases.
There is a huge connection with a lot of autoimmune diseases and vitamin D deficiency. But, one of the concerns people have with taking high doses of vitamin D is a condition called hypercalcemia. This is high calcium in the blood, which could potentially lead to kidney stones. To lessen this risk, the doctor told the patient to omit calcium from the diet. Drinking 3.5-4 liters of fluid a day could also potentially help lessen the risk of kidney stones.
