Dr.Guttler’s Comments:

  1. Low levels of Vitamin D may be a risk factor for thyroid cancer.
  2. A  meta-analysis published in the journal Nutrition of 14 articles.
  3.  Researchers found that levels were lower in preoperative thyroid cancer patients vs controls.
    4. Results from studies examining the association between vitamin D levels and thyroid cancer have been mixed.
    5. Some studies have suggested a protective effect.
    6.Other studies have indicated that higher levels of vitamin D are linked to thyroid cancer in patients with lymph node metastases.
    7.Prospective clinical studies with larger sample sizes may strengthen the evidence.
