WELCOME TO Medical Science Hypotheses

A new journal in the Medical Science Monitor family has just opened.
 
Medical Science Hypotheses has developed as an independent title in 2014 out of the highly popular Hypothesis section of the Medical Science Monitor. The Editors believe that hypothesis reports are inspiring source of information in developing new research areas or therapies. In addition to the inspiration, these reports are an important basis for further and more advanced research on diagnosis, treatment development, causes and outcomes of disease.
The aim of the Journal is to gather hypothesis reports across all medical disciplines, thereby integrating international medical knowledge.

As a continuation of the Medical Science Monitor, the new journal will be added to PubMed Central / PubMed and Medline after a short period of evaluation of the first 15 published papers. We are looking forward to your submission.

ABSTRACT: A high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency has been found in Saudi Arabia, which can be directly attributed to inadequate exposure of sunlight largely due to religious practices and lifestyle. The poor dietary intake of vitamin D further adds to this problem. Various researchers have proved vitamin D deficiency to be linked with increased incidences of cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases. Recently, scientists have found an association of vitamin D deficiency with reduced testosterone levels. This can be attributed to increasing incidences of male infertility in Saudi Arabia. The rising incidences of infertility in Saudi males can be attributed to their decreasing vitamin D levels. Taking adequate measures to overcome the vitamin D deficiency can improve their sexual vigor.

Keywords: Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2, Testosterone, Vitamin D Deficiency, Vitamin D Response Element
