Quick Summary

In this randomized controlled study, vitamin D supplementation did not reduce levels of the inflammatory cytokine IL-17 in women with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, compared to a placebo.

What was studied?

The effect of vitamin D supplementation on inflammatory cytokines in women with Hashimoto’s disease.

The outcomes were serum levels of inflammatory cytokines (interleukin 4, interleukin 17, transforming growth factor beta or serum TGF-β, interferon gamma) and the gene expression of these inflammatory cytokines in CD4+ T cells.
