Reduced 25-OH-Vitamin D Levels in Patients with Chronic Autoimmune Atrophic Gastritis Abstract #1289

Introduction: Chronic atrophic autoimmune gastritis (CAAG) is characterized by parietal cells disruption leading to hypochlorhydria and vitamin B12 malabsorption. An increased risk of osteoporosis was reported in patients with long-standing hypochlorhydria. Only few studies reported a possible association between CAAG and 25OHVitamin D (25OHvitD) deficiency.
Aim(s): To evaluate the prevalence of 25OHvitD deficiency in CAAG.
Materials and methods: From 2012 to 2015, 25OHVitD and calcium were measured in all the CAAG patients followed at our Centre. Results were compared with a group of 1234 subjects (958 F; median age 62 yrs). Subjects with abnormal calcium values, known VitD supplementation, primary hyperparathyroidism or renal failure were excluded.

#2772 Vitamin Supplementation and a Personalized Diet in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors: The DIVIT Study
Introduction: Patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are at risk for vitamin deficiencies and poor nutritional status due to excessive serotonin production, diarrhea, previous gastrointestinal surgery, and/or treatment with somatostatin analogues (SSA). Little knowledge exists about vitamin deficiency and how patients should be supported for the deficiencies they develop during their long-lasting disease.
