Vitamin D update at the RNOH

Vit D cover

Come to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore for an important update about Vitamin D deficiency in childhood. Hear from International experts including Professor Zulf Mughal who has studied and lectured about Vitamin D for 30 years and is a consultant in children’s medical bone disease.

A range of other London experts will explain the impact of Vitamin D deficiency – with practical guidance on how to prevent many of the problems. Learn about current policy regarding who should have blood levels checked, who should have supplements, and whether these should be prescribed by doctors or other health professionals. Understand the recommendations for Vitamin D dosage and duration of treatment in cases of deficiency and gain knowledge of the blood levels which indicate insufficiency or deficiency.

Hear about research on the role that Vitamin D plays in many illnesses such as gestational diabetes, plus toxicity and safe blood serum levels. Share your knowledge and clinical experiences by participating in an open discussion about new treatment guidelines and protocols.

The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital treats patients from across the UK, so nutritionists, doctors, health visitors, midwives, pharmacists, public health and other health professionals from far and wide will be attending.

The meeting is sponsored by SMA Nutrition.

The afternoon session from 2:00 – 5:00pm will be preceded by registration and lunch from 12:30pm. Full details of the event can be found in the leaflet.
