Absorption Of Vitamin D

Vitamins A, D, E, and K are called the fat-soluble vitamins, because they are soluble in organic solvents and are absorbed and transported in a manner similar to that of fats.

In patients with damaged intestinal mucosa, the absorption can be significantly disturbed (e.g. in Crohn’s disease). In this case, higher doses of vitamin D must be given, administered by means of injections or formed by UVB irradiation of the skin itself. The last variant is tedious and difficult to calculate.

A poor absorption of vitamin D can sometimes occur for no apparent reason. Patients with impaired admission can only be identified by a check-up after therapy. This check-up is more important than determining the vitamin D level before therapy (an estimate is sufficient), especially if the desired effect does not materialize.

There is no danger of an unlikely overdose; some patients suffer much more from an undersupply due to impaired absorption, for example due to an intestinal disease, despite high vitamin D doses.
