1. Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD), calcium and alkaline phosphatase (EC 3.1.3.1) levels and vitamin D intakes (from 3 d weighed dietary records) were determined in a cohort of fifty-nine male East Indian Punjabi immigrants (37.7 (SD 10.5) years) and fifty-four females (33.3 (SD 7.4) years). 2. Females had somewhat lower mean serum 25-OHD levels (12.3(More)
Iron status of East Indian predominantly lacto-ovo vegetarian immigrants (59 males, mean age 37.7 +/- 10.5 yr; 55 females, mean age 33.3 +/- 7.4 yr) was assessed using dietary and biochemical-iron indices, including a Tri-index (TI) model. Iron deficiency was higher among females than males: 33% vs 5%, respectively, via the TI model (serum ferritin,(More)
