    I am reading that the Vitamin D receptor is down regulated with some infections.... like Lyme Disease it is down by about 50%.
    Can anyone explain what this means ?
    Does it mean that of you have a level of 80, but have Lyme infection, then actually only half of the D will get into the cells, so in effect the functional level is around 40, which is low.
    Or am I being too simplistic?!!!
    Thanks
