In the first group, supplied small pump implanted under the skin a continuous dose of vitamin D for three weeks. The researchers studied the animals in both groups. Fibroids increased in size in the untreated rats, but in the rats shrunk vitamin D, the tumors dramatically. On average, uterine fibroids in the group with vitamin D, 75 % smaller than those in the untreated group.

The amount of vitamin D, rats received daily was to a human dose of about 400 international units equivalent. The recommended amount of vitamin D for children and adults aged 70 and under is 600 units daily, although up to 4,000 units is considered safe for children over 9 years, of the vitamin. Pregnant and breastfeeding women. – Further research is needed to confirm vitamin D as a potential treatment for women with uterine fibroids, said Dr. Al – Hendy. But it is also an essential nutrient for the health of muscles, bones and the immune system, and it is important for everyone to receive an adequate amount of the vitamin. .The paper also concludes that more research be risk better understand this risk and a skin test of human, eluting pose a high risk of sensitivity to medicines stent could be develop identified.
