Depression is common in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. This study, conducted by Jordanian research departments, aimed to investigate whether vitamin D levels correlate with depression in people with multiple sclerosis (MS). The risk of depression, vitamin D blood levels, and disability status were evaluated during the investigation. 88 patients were enrolled, of which more than half had potential depression and 68% had insufficient or deficient vitamin D levels. Furthermore, results showed that vitamin D levels significantly correlated with depression scores and disability status. More details can be found in the study.
