UNLABELLED Vitamin D deficiency (25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) <25 nmol/L) was common in a convenience sample of apparently healthy Syrian adults. Female gender, season, and concealing clothing were independent predictors of vitamin D deficiency. Community-based research is needed to identify vulnerable subgroups and inform public health actions. PURPOSE Optimal vitamin D status for bone health has been inferred from the determination of serum 25OHD levels below which there is an increase in… CONTINUE READING
