This prospective study in elderly showed that kidney function plays a minor role in explaining the high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency seen in noninstitutionalized elderly subjects. However, 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels were clearly inversely associated with risk for first fall, which was especially seen in subjects with calcium levels above median. Few prospective studies in elderly exist that have investigated the association of renal dysfunction and vitamin D status on risk of falls. The… CONTINUE READING
