Tenofivir is not linked to Vit D defiency

Research done on HIV patients.

Impact of ART

Initially researchers found that the use of ART was linked to having low vitamin D levels. However, when further analyses were done to explore this finding among the 2,660 participants who were using ART, they found that deficiency of vitamin D was linked specifically to exposure to the anti-HIV drug efavirenz. The longer a person took efavirenz, the greater the risk of developing vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency was not linked to the use of the following drugs:

    non-nukes – nevirapine (Viramune), etravrine (Intelence)
    nukes – tenofovir (Viread, and in Truvada, Atripla and Complera), AZT (zidovudine, Retrovir and in Combivir and Trizivir)
    protease inhibitors – including darunavir (Prezista) and ritonavir (Norvir)
    integrase inhibitors – raltegravir (Isentress)

to avoid confusion of vit d deficency with drugs:
it is due to chronic infections and imapired immune system which can t clear them and not these drugs.
although drugs that lower vit d exsists for sure no drug maker will ever study and say this......

vit d is low on hbv, hcv, hiv, cancer, autism, cfs and probably all chronic diseases and vit d deficency makes weak immune system mostly and bone loss too
