Page 6 Abstract The recent discovery – from a meta-analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials – that supplemental cholecalciferol (vitamin D) significantly reduces all-cause mortality emphasizes the medical, ethical, and legal implications of promptly diagnosing and adequately treating vitamin D deficiency. Not only are such deficiencies common, and probably the rule, vitamin D deficiency is implicated in most of the diseases of civilization. Vitamin D’s final metabolic product is a potent… Expand

Diagnosis and treatment of vitamin D deficiency
TLDR
Assessing serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D is the only way to make the diagnosis and to assure that treatment is adequate and safe and the authors believe that treatment should be sufficient to maintain levels found in humans living naturally in a sun-rich environment, that is, > 40 ng/ml, year around.

Safety of vitamin D 3 in adults with multiple sclerosis 1 – 3
Background: Vitamin D3 may have therapeutic potential in several diseases, including multiple sclerosis. High doses of vitamin D3 may be required for therapeutic efficacy, and yet tolerability—in theExpand
Vitamin D supplementation, 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations, and safety.
  • R. Vieth
  • Medicine
  • The American journal of clinical nutrition
  • 1999
TLDR
The assembled data from many vitamin D supplementation studies reveal a curve for vitamin D dose versus serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] response that is surprisingly flat up to 250 microg (10000 IU) vitamin D/d. Expand
Is vitamin D deficiency to blame for the asthma epidemic?
TLDR
Providing adequate vitamin D supplementation in pregnancy may lead to significant decreases in asthma incidence in young children, and this has been associated with obesity, African American race, and recent immigrants to westernized countries, thus reflecting the epidemiologic patterns observed in the asthma epidemic. Expand
Efficacy of an oral, 10-day course of high-dose calciferol in correcting vitamin D deficiency.
TLDR
A high-dose regimen for rapid correction of vitamin D deficiency is described, which makes use of the calciferol 50 000 international unit (IU) tablets available in this country and provides a simple, safe and effective way of managingitamin D deficiency. Expand
Vitamin D in preventive medicine: are we ignoring the evidence?
TLDR
Serum levels of 25(OH)D are the best indicator to assess vitamin D deficiency, insufficiency, hypovitaminosis, adequacy, and toxicity. Expand
Long-latency deficiency disease: insights from calcium and vitamin D.
  • R. Heaney
  • Medicine
  • The American journal of clinical nutrition
  • 2003
TLDR
The insights derived from these nutrients are tentatively applied to folic acid and well-documented examples of both short- and long-latency deficiency states involving calcium and vitamin D are described briefly. Expand
A potential role for vitamin D on HIV infection?
TLDR
Observational studies are needed to confirm the associations between vitamin D status and HIV disease progression and provide useful insights on the potential role of vitamin D supplementation to HIV-infected persons and the planning of intervention trials. Expand
High prevalence of vitamin D inadequacy and implications for health.
TLDR
The purposes of this article are to examine the prevalence of vitamin D inadequacy and to review the potential implications for skeletal and extraskeletal health. Expand
What is the optimal vitamin D status for health?

  • Medicine
  • Progress in biophysics and molecular biology
  • 2006
TLDR
Advice to avoid UVB light should be accompanied by encouragement to supplement with vitamin D in an amount that will correct for the nutrient deficit that sun- avoidance will cause, and the combined effect of current nutrition guidelines and current sun-avoidance advice is to ensure that adults who follow these recommendations will have 25(OH)D concentrations lower than 75 nmol/L.
