Vitamin D is the trendy Vitamin at the moment, recommended for many different types of cancer and diseases. Vitamin D levels vary between individuals for a number of reasons; different times of the year; diet; outdoor activities; Body Mass Index, people who are overweight generally have a lower vitamin D level; genetic differences between individuals and any pre-existing dietary supplements people may take. The government has recommended that all adults take a Vitamin D supplement 10µgm or 400i.u. of Vitamin D3 per day during the autumn and winter seasons and all year round for those people at high risk of Vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D has been shown to reduce the risk of recurrence in patients who have had a melanoma.
Mr Peach routinely recommends Vitamin D for the majority of patients who have had a melanoma removed. He will check your Vitamin D level before recommending an appropriate supplement dose, which is often higher than the routine recommendations.
Commonly people, having had a skin cancer, are wary of going out in the sun.
