SummaryThis review describes the vitamin D status in different regions of the world with the objective of understanding the scope of hypovitaminosis D and the factors related to its prevalence that may contribute to the pathogenesis of osteoporosis and fragility fractures.IntroductionVitamin D status has been linked to the pathogenesis of hip fractures as well as other skeletal and non-skeletal disorders. The purpose of this review is to provide a global perspective of vitamin D status across… Expand
Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and metabolic syndrome in a Japanese working population: The Furukawa Nutrition and Health Study.
TLDR
Higher circulating vitamin D is associated with decreased likelihood of having MetS among Japanese adults, and the inverse association between serum 25(OH)D and MetS was more pronounced in subjects with high calcium intake. Expand
Lifestyle-Related Metabolic Disorders, Osteoporosis, and Fracture Risk in Asia: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
These findings suggest that diabetes is a risk factor for fracture in Asian populations and MetS may be associated with bone loss in Asian men and atherosclerosis associated with increased fractures; however, caution is needed interpreting these findings given limitations in study design. Expand
The potential of eHealth Apps to Support Targeted Complex Health Messages
TLDR
The Safe-D App aims to assist individuals in a more personal manner, through self-monitoring and personalized relevant health messages that are dependent on the individual’s monitored behavior, along with recommendations to deliver targeted messages. Expand

Prevalence and predictors of vitamin D deficiency in five immigrant groups living in Oslo, Norway: the Oslo Immigrant Health Study
TLDR
There is widespread vitamin D deficiency in both men and women born in Turkey, Sri Lanka, Iran, Pakistan and Vietnam residing in Oslo, and it is higher in men born in Pakistan and lower in those born in Vietnam compared to the other ethnic groups. Expand
Serum vitamin D concentrations among elderly people in Europe
TLDR
It is shown that free-living elderly Europeans, regardless of geographical location, are at substantial risk of inadequate vitamin D status during winter and that dietary enrichment or supplementation with vitamin D should be seriously considered during this season. Expand
Vitamin D: A Growing Perspective
TLDR
The evidence indicates that 5 μ g (200 IU)/day of vitamin D has little effect on vitamin D status as measured by the serum 25(OH)D concentration beyond infancy, and two randomized clinical trials show that higher vitamin D intake improves one-year gain in bone density in adolescent girls. Expand
High prevalence of low dietary calcium, high phytate consumption, and vitamin D deficiency in healthy south Indians.
TLDR
Low dietary calcium intake and 25(OH)D concentrations were associated with deleterious effects on bone mineral homeostasis and Prospective longitudinal studies are required to assess the effect on bone Mineral density, a surrogate marker for fracture risk and fracture rates. Expand
High prevalence of vitamin D deficiency among pregnant women and their newborns in northern India.
TLDR
A high prevalence of physiologically significant hypovitaminosis D among pregnant women and their newborns is observed, the magnitude of which warrants public health intervention. Expand
Vitamin D status and its relationship with bone mineral density in healthy Asian Indians
TLDR
The findings show that vitamin D deficiency is common in urban north Indian hospital staff, and the possible reasons include inadequate sunlight exposure and skin pigmentation in Indians. Expand
A global study of vitamin D status and parathyroid function in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis: baseline data from the multiple outcomes of raloxifene evaluation clinical trial.
TLDR
In conclusion, serum 25OHD was less than 25 nmol/L in 4% of the women, and this was associated with a 30% higher serum PTH, and a significant seasonal relationship, with lower values in all regions in winter. Expand

TLDR
Evaluated vitamin D and parathyroid hormone levels in healthy young women of child-bearing age in Jordan and the effects of dress style and season are suggestive of widespread hypovitaminosis D in Jordan. Expand
Hypovitaminosis D in Healthy Schoolchildren
TLDR
The inverse changes in parathyroid hormone suggest that insufficient vitamin D levels may deleteriously affect skeletal metabolism in healthy adolescents, calling for a reconsideration of vitamin D supplementation in high-risk adolescents to further optimize skeletal health. Expand
Hypovitaminosis D in a Sunny Country: Relation to Lifestyle and Bone Markers
TLDR
In the absence of information regarding time spent outdoors, the results show that hypovitaminosis D is common among young Lebanese people and is related mostly to low vitamin D intake, which should emphasize the need for more vitamin D in the population. Expand
