North Durham GPs have received requests from secondary care to initiate and/or continue high-dose vitamin D to treat patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

There has been recent debate about the role of low levels of vitamin D in the aetiology and treatment of MS, and there are currently a number of studies looking at the effect of vitamin D supplements in relapsing-remitting MS.
