Vitamin D3 deficiency may be primary cause of keratoconus...findings can be reversed in presence of adequate replacement

Just posted notice of this new report in another thread about beating KC naturally, but perhaps it should be a specific topic:

Mcmillan J (June 05, 2018) Spectrum of Darkness, Agent of Light: Myopia, Keratoconus, Ocular Surface Disease, and Evidence for a Profoundly Vitamin D-dependent Eye. Cureus 10(6): e2744. doi:10.7759/cureus.2744

KC findings can be objectively reversed in the presence of adequate D3.  The report is based upon numerous observations in clinical practice and needs to be followed up with controlled studies, but the reported findings will hopefully be very compelling to encourage that to happen.  As the paper points out, it is very important that an understanding is developed for what optimal serum level and intake should be.  Controlled trials are necessary to fully determine what would be optimal and people should not just start taking D3 supplements without learning about safe dosing and proper testing, but it appears most people could see benefit with over-the-counter supplementation at levels already considered safe by the American Endocrine Society.  A good source for information about safe dosing and proper testing is the Vitamin D Council's website.
