Objective: This study examined to determine the levels of 25(OH) D in endometriosis patients and to clarify the association between the endometriosis and intake of calcium and vitamin D dietary.
Material and methods: A total of 200 women with endometriosisas endometriosis group and 154 healthy women(control group) of reproductive age were includedin this study.The plasma detection of 25(OH) D (vitamin D3) was measured by the high pressure liquid chromatography method inendometriosis and control(healthy) group. Participants in two groups were asked about intake of calcium dietary and vitamin D.
Results: Our result showed the association between deficiency of 25(OH) D level and endometriosis risk (OR=29.4, P<0.001). Also, the intake of dietary calcium was inversely associated with recurrence of endometriosis. However, this association was not observed between vitamin D intake and endometriosis.
Conclusions: Our results showed that the decreased level of VD is associated with the endometriosis risk. Accordingly, the authors validate that vitamin D deficiency may have an emergence and predispose factor of endometriosis; Also a decreased risk of endometriosis with increasing Ca intake was observed.Therefore, using of Ca as dietary supplementation may be useful in the managing of endometriosis patients.
