The aim of this population-based, prospective, observational study was to examine the relationship between serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) and fracture risk in a cohort of 1662 community-dwelling men aged 70 to 97 years followed for a mean of 4.3 years. Data about mobility, muscle strength, balance, medication use, cognition, medical history, lifestyle factors, renal function, and serum 25OHD were collected at baseline. Data on radiologically verified fractures were collected every… CONTINUE READING
