Vitamin D deficiency common in men and women undergoing thyroidectomy

Vitamin D deficiency common in men and women undergoing thyroidectomySeptember 26 2014. The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery annual meeting held in Orlando September 21-24, 2014 was the site of a presentation of the finding of research conducted at Henry Ford Hospital of widespread vitamin D deficiency among individuals undergoing surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid gland.  Deficient vitamin D levels increase the risk of potentially dangerous low postoperative calcium levels—a condition that could easily be prevented by vitamin D supplementation. "Low vitamin D levels have now been shown to increase this risk, even in the setting of normal postoperative parathyroid hormone levels," noted the study’s senior author Michael Singer, MD, who is the Director of the Division of Thyroid & Parathyroid Surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery at Henry Ford. "Providing vitamin D supplementation to these patients prior to surgery is an easy and inexpensive step to make their surgery safer."
