Systematic Review of the Effects of Ultraviolet Radiation on Markers of Metabolic Dysfunction

Gorman, Shelley; de Courten, Barbora; Lucas, Robyn


Emerging findings suggest that exposure to ultraviolet wavelengths of sunlight modulates metabolic function. Here we review the metabolic effects of exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR), focusing on the effects of phototherapies (that administer UVR), and advice to increase sun exposure in individuals enrolled in clinical trials and intervention studies. We identified 25 studies in which the effects of UVR on metabolic outcomes were examined, including: narrowband ultraviolet B phototherapy...[Show more]
