Aim: To evaluate the dietary calcium and vitamin D status in south Indian postmenopausal women. Methods: Postmenopausal women (n=164) were evaluated for their daily dietary calcium intake, phytate to calcium ratio, and bone mineral parameters. Their serum leutinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D), and parathyroid hormone levels (PTH) were measured. Results: Their age and BMI were 59.5 ± 8 years and 27 ± 5 kg/m2, respectively. Their daily dietary… Expand
Vitamin D status in healthy postmenopausal Iranian women
TLDR
Findings indicate that 25(OH) D levels in postmenopausal women of north-west Iran are low, and studies to elucidate and assess the dietary intake of vitamin D in elderly women of this region can be of further benefit. Expand
Dietary calcium intake and physical activity levels among urban South Indian postmenopausal women
TLDR
DCI was below the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) and the majority of postmenopausal women were physically inactive, indicating the need for better education regarding DCI and theneed for calcium supplements and physical activity, all of which can contribute to the prevention of the consequences of osteoporosis.

Widespread 25-Hydroxyvitamin D Deficiency in Affluent and Nonaffluent Pregnant Indian Women
TLDR
There is a need to develop culturally sensitive strategies for improving the 25(OH)D status and explore lifestyle characteristics (sun exposure index, diet, and economic indicators) associated with serum 25( OH)D. Expand
Effect of vitamin D supplementation on bone health parameters of healthy young Indian women
TLDR
The data show that monthly administration of 60,000 IU cholecalciferol in healthy subjects with hypovitaminosis D may suffice in summer months, but higher doses may be more appropriate during winter months. Expand
Prevalence of vitamin d deficiency among menopausal women and its correlation with diabetes: a cross sectional data
TLDR
High prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency exists among apparently healthy postmenopausal women in Indian PMW, however the current study failed to show any statistical correlation between vitamin D deficiency and existence of diabetes, which may be due to small sample size. Expand
Efficacy and Safety of Cholecalciferol Supplementation in Vitamin D Deficient Subjects Based on Endocrine Society Clinical Practice Guidelines
TLDR
Vitamin D supplementation based on recent ESCPG even up to upper tolerable intake levels (UL) along with elemental calcium of 1gm/day is safe and does not lead to hypercalcemia. Expand
Presence of impaired intestinal calcium absorption in chronic hypovitaminosis D and its change after cholecalciferol supplementation: assessment by the calcium load test.
TLDR
The results obtained show that chronic hypovitaminosis D in Asian Indians has functional relevance in terms of its effect on intestinal calcium absorption, which improves with cholecalciferol supplementation, which support the need for improving the vitamin D status of Asian Indians through dietary supplementation and exposure to sunshine.

Vitamin D Status in South Asian Populations – Risks and Opportunities
  • S. Akhtar
  • Medicine
  • Critical reviews in food science and nutrition
  • 2016
TLDR
It is concluded that vitamin D deficiency is highly prevalent among South Asian populations and global efforts are needed to overcome hypovitaminosis in the region. Expand
Association of Vitamin D levels and Cognitive function in Postmenopausal women
TLDR
A significantly lower 25(OH)D levels, MMSE and ACE-R scores were observed in postmenopausal women when compared to premenopausalWomen, suggesting a potential role of Vitamin D in cognitive dysfunction in post menopausal women and can be considered as an early marker for cognitive decline. Expand
Effectiveness and safety of vitamin D in relation to bone health.
TLDR
The largest body of evidence on vitamin D status and bone health was in older adults with a lack of studies in premenopausal women and infants, children and adolescents, and there was fair evidence of an association between low circulating 25(OH)D concentrations and established rickets. Expand

Relation Between Vitamin D Insufficiency, Bone Density, and Bone Metabolism in Healthy Postmenopausal Women
TLDR
It is shown that vitamin D insufficiency in an otherwise healthy postmenopausal population is a common risk factor for osteoporosis associated with increased bone remodeling and low bone mass. Expand

TLDR
It is found that with optimal nutrition, good sunlight exposure and regular physical exercise, healthy young individuals have normal bone and mineral biochemical values. Expand

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
Vitamin D3 and Calcium to Prevent Hip Fractures in Elderly Women
TLDR
Whether vitamin D, (cholecalciferol) and calcium supplements decrease the frequency of nonvertebral fractures, particularly fractures of the femoral neck, among ambulatory elderly women living in nursing homes is determined. Expand
Prevalence and significance of low 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations in healthy subjects in Delhi.
TLDR
Healthy subjects with low 25(OH)D concentrations are at risk of bone mineral metabolic imbalance when exposed to factors that strain bone mineral homeostasis. Expand
Subclinical vitamin D deficiency in postmenopausal women with low vertebral bone mass.
TLDR
Vitamin D deficiency develops when both the endogenous and exogenous sources are insufficient and contributes to a reduced bone mass in elderly women, suggesting secondary hyperparathyroidism. Expand
Calcium and vitamin D supplements: effects on calcium metabolism in elderly people.
TLDR
increasing the calcium and vitamin D intake reduces the biochemical signs of secondary hyperparathyroidism in elderly people and was more marked in long-stay hospital patients than in outpatients. Expand
Effect of calcium and vitamin D supplementation on bone density in men and women 65 years of age or older.
TLDR
In men and women 65 years of age or older who are living in the community, dietary supplementation with calcium and vitamin D moderately reduced bone loss measured in the femoral neck, spine, and total body over the three-year study period and reduced the incidence of nonvertebral fractures. Expand
Menopausal bone loss is partially regulated by dietary intake of vitamin D
TLDR
Adequate vitamin D nutritional status preserves bone mass in perimenopausal women by reducing serum PTH concentration and PTH-dependent bone remodeling and providing further evidence that with uncoupling ofBone remodeling after menopause, a high turnover state is associated with greater bone loss.

Prevalence of Vitamin D Insufficiency in an Adult Normal Population
TLDR
The results showed that in French normal adults living in an urban environment with a lack of direct exposure to sunshine, diet failed to provide an adequate amount of vitamin D, and the clinical utility of winter supplementation with low doses ofitamin D was discussed. Expand
