Lynda Williams writing in Medwire reported, “Vitamin K deficiency may play a role in the development of osteoarthritis, suggests a study published in The American Journal of Medicine.”
Researchers found that “Multicenter Osteoarthritis (MOST) Study participants with subclinical plasma levels (≤0.5 nM) of phylloquinone (vitamin K) were significantly more likely than participants with adequate vitamin K to have x-ray evidence of knee osteoarthritis.” Additionally, during “30 months of follow-up, vitamin K-deficient participants were significantly more likely to develop osteoarthritis in one or both knees than in neither knee.”
