025 – Vitamin D | The Skeleton in the Closet

Sunflowers photosynthesizing for Vitamin D Episode of This Medical Life Podcast

The sun has always been special to us. Most cultures, particularly in ancient times, worshipped it as a God to be feared. In modern society, we recognise both the potential life-affirming and life-dangers that the sun poses.

In this episode, we focus on the beneficial side the sun provides to us via Vitamin D. We discuss the pros and cons of testing, treating, and managing Vitamin D in patients, and of particular concern is identifying those who are at a high risk of deficiency.

Our special guest is Professor Ken Sikaris who is a chemical pathologist and Director of chemical pathology at Melbourne Pathology.
