Electromyographic studies in 15 women with nutritional osteomalacia and proximal muscle weakness showed brief duration motor unit action potentials of normal amplitude and increased proportion of polyphasic motor unit potentials in the majority of them, suggesting a reversible transient block of the muscle fibres.

Uremic myopathy.
The high incidence of elevated CK in CAPD patients suggests a subclinical myopathy, and Elevation of the CK-MM isoenzyme may be related to increased muscle catabolism in patients who often have profound muscle wasting. Expand

Clinical and laboratory features of patients with osteomalacia initially presenting with neurological manifestations
It was not uncommon for patients with osteomalacia to visit the neurology department, and the clinical presentation of these patients can be more complex owing to superimposed neurological disease and accompanying hypocalcemia. Expand
The effect of combined resistance exercise training and vitamin D3 supplementation on musculoskeletal health and function in older adults: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Tentative support for the additive effect of resistance exercise and vitamin D3 supplementation for the improvement of muscle strength in older adults is provided. Expand

The Role of Vitamin D in Skeletal Muscle Function and Regeneration
The main findings from this work imply that serum 25[OH]D concentrations across a broad range from 18->100 nmol do not affect skeletal muscle contractile properties and low Vitamin D concentrations are highly prevalent but can be easily corrected with supplementation of Vitamin D3. Expand
Vitamin D and the athlete: Emerging insights
There is now growing evidence to suggest that many athletes are in fact Vitamin D deficient, especially in the winter months largely as a consequence of inadequate sun exposure, combined with poor dietary practices, although the consequences of such deficiencies are still unclear in athletic populations. Expand
Vitamin D supplementation does not improve human skeletal muscle contractile properties in insufficient young males
It is postulated that skeletal muscle function is only perturbed in conditions of severe deficiency (<12.5 nmol L−1) and elevating total serum 25[OH]D to concentrations > 120 nmoli L−1 has no effect on skeletal Muscle function. Expand
Effects of alkali supplementation and vitamin D insufficiency on rat skeletal muscle
Support for alkali supplementation with potassium bicarbonate is provided as a promising intervention to promote preservation of skeletal muscle mass, particularly in the setting of higher vitamin D status. Expand
