European researchers have appear to have discovered that vitamin D deficiency is closely linked with chronic fatigue among patients who have suffered traumatic brain injuries.
After evaluating a range of factors, scientists led by Jessica Schnieders from Rijnstate Hospital in Arnham, the Netherlands, found that the biggest commonality among fatigued patients was their low vitamin D levels, reports Personal Liberty Digest.
From a sample of 90 patients, 80 per cent of those experiencing fatigue had a vitamin deficiency, according to the data published in Med Page Today.
That figure compares with 40 per cent of those in the control group.
Personal Liberty Digest quotes Ms Schnieders as saying: "This is early work, so we need to confirm that vitamin D is the cause of this fatigue, and if so to see if taking vitamin D, perhaps coupled with improved sleep patterns, can alleviate some of the symptoms."
Meanwhile, Paul Napoli, writing for injuryboard.com, recently stated that traumatic brain injury can increase a person's risk of developing Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease.
