Lack of Vitamin D 'affects IVF chances'
Herald, The (Scotland)
LACK of vitamin D almost halves the chances of conceiving for women undergoing IVF treatment, a study has found.
A "sufficient" amount of vitamin D was defined as at least 20 nanograms (ng) per millilitre of blood - less than the recommended level of 30 ng, said the researchers.

Dr Paffoni added: "Although randomised clinical trials are needed to confirm the findings, our results certainly suggest that low levels of vitamin D contribute to infertility."
