Figures and Tables from this paper

The Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency among Cancer Survivors in a Nationwide Survey of the Korean Population
TLDR
Vitamin D deficiency was prevalent among both cancer survivors and controls in Korea and was most prevalent among 19–44 year olds and among managers, professionals, and related workers.
Correlates of Vitamin D Deficiency in South Florida Older Adults
TLDR
Since vitamin D deficiency is linked to health risk factors, it is important that health professionals become aware of the connections of vitamin D status with intake, bioavailability, and skin synthesis to identify those at risk and develop and plan pertinent interventions to prevent and correct deficiency.
Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency and Associated Risk Factors in the US Population (2011-2012)
TLDR
The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency is greater in certain clinical subpopulations, and the presence of associated characteristics should raise the index of suspicion for the practicing clinician with regard to conditions associated withitamin D deficiency, such as osteoporosis and osteomalacia.
Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency among US adults: prevalence, predictors and clinical implications
TLDR
Awareness of the high prevalence of VDD and VDI among US adults and related predictors could inform behavioural and dietary strategies for preventing V DD and monitoring VDI, especially in old, black, obese and inactive individuals who report rare consumption of milk.
Risk Factors for Vitamin D Deficiency among HIV-Infected and Uninfected Injection Drug Users
TLDR
High vitamin D levels were associated with multivitamin intake and with higher albumin levels, suggesting that nutritional status contributes substantially to deficiency, and HIV-infected IDUs were less likely to be vitamin D deficient.
Does the High Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency in African Americans Contribute to Health Disparities?
TLDR
Evidence exists that high 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels and/or vitamin D supplementation reduces risk for many adverse health outcomes including all-cause mortality rate, adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes, cancer, diabetes mellitus, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, multiple sclerosis, acute respiratory tract infections, COVID-19, asthma exacerbations, rickets, and osteomalacia.
Is There Pandemic Vitamin D Deficiency in the Black Population? A Review of Evidence
TLDR
It appears that the serum 25 (OH)D level is not the best marker of vitamin D sufficiency or deficiency in Blacks, and clinical evaluation of the vitamin D status in the Black population needs to consider other serum biomarkers such as 1,25(OH)2D and/or bioavailable 25( OH)D.
Vitamin D Deficiency in a Multiethnic Healthy Control Cohort and Altered Immune Response in Vitamin D Deficient European-American Healthy Controls
TLDR
A large portion of healthy individuals have vitamin D deficiency and these individuals have altered T and B cell responses, indicating that the absence of sufficient vitamin D levels could result in undesirable cellular and molecular alterations ultimately contributing to immune dysregulation.
Variation in vitamin D supplementation among adults in a multi-race/ethnic health plan population, 2008
TLDR
It is suggested that in 2008, a large percentage of women and an even larger percentage of men in a large Northern California health plan get no vitamin D from dietary supplements, and that Blacks and Latinos and obese adults, who are at higher risk of vitamin D deficiency, are also the least likely to get any vitamin Dfrom dietary supplements.
The factors associated with Vitamin D deficiency in community dwelling elderly in Korea
TLDR
It is important that health professions know that the factors proved in this study are connected to vitamin D deficiency thus provide information and intervention strategies ofitamin D deficiency to old aged people.

Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency in Uninsured Women
TLDR
These results demonstrate a high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in an uninsured, medically underserved female population and uninsured women should be strongly encouraged to increase their vitamin D intake.

TLDR
Studies in both human and animal models add strength to the hypothesis that the unrecognized epidemic of vitamin D deficiency worldwide is a contributing factor of many chronic debilitating diseases.
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.
Vitamin D deficiency: a worldwide problem with health consequences.
TLDR
Vitamin D deficiency causes rickets in children and will precipitate and exacerbate osteopenia, osteoporosis, and fractures in adults, and foods that are fortified with vitamin D are often inadequate to satisfy either a child's or an adult's vitamin D requirement.
Prevalence and correlates of vitamin D status in African American men
TLDR
The problem of low vitamin D status in African American men may be more severe than previously reported and future efforts to increase vitamin D recommendations and intake, such as through supplementation, are warranted to improve vitamin D Status in this particularly vulnerable population.
Vitamin D Deficiency and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
Vitamin D deficiency is associated with incident cardiovascular disease and further clinical and experimental studies may be warranted to determine whether correction of vitamin D deficiency could contribute to the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Vitamin D insufficiency in southern Arizona.
TLDR
Sun exposure had a greater effect on 25(OH)D in whites than in blacks and Hispanics, whereas BMI appeared to be more important in the latter groups.
Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and bone mineral density among Hispanic men
TLDR
The findings underscore the importance of examining the skeletal health of Hispanic subgroups, and suggest that a considerable number of Hispanic men may be at elevated risk of fracture and vitamin D deficiency.
