Recent study showing that although sun bed use caused a transient increase in vitamine d levels after continued sun bed use vitamin D levels went back down and there was benefit to overall well being.
Although serum vitamin D levels are transiently increased after sunbed use, longer-term increases in serum vitamin D levels are not observed with regular sunbed exposure. Continued sunbed use does not improve serum vitamin D levels nor promote overall well-being.
Message: we know that sun tanning bed use is associated with increased risk of skin cancer. Now we also know that the theoretical benefit in terms of maintaining higher Vitamin D levels is not true.
So there is good reason to avoid it and no good reason to do it!
